Born and raised in Florida's Gulf Coast, Shawn Dawson was first and foremost a drummer and percussionist in his early years, and played in the Sean Dietrich Trio. Eventually, after perceiving a lack of melodic expression on the drum set, he taught himself guitar and began using the Great American Songbook as his road map to learning music.
Shawn's influences are eclectic and his improvisational playing style draws heavily from artists like Joe Pass, Jerry Garcia, Paul Simon, B.B. King, Nat King Cole and more. On guitar he plays a mix of folk, jazz, blues, latin, and fusion, with a very percussive and finger-picking style. He has a penchant for singing the blues, jazz ballads, and the music of the Grateful Dead.
