Shawn James & The Shapeshifters Release “Wild Man”

The Gospel According to Shawn James & the Shapeshifters will be released April 7. The album could be described simply as “rock and roar.” At times, it evokes both Son House and SunO)))), with haunting fiddle and plucking banjo amidst swampy, fuzz driven slide guitars.

Other parts are like a fog rising from a cave, while others come crashing like a thunderstorm. Recorded at Insomiac Studios with engineer Adam Putman and featuring the stunning cover art of Polish artist Karol Bak, the new album offers the band’s hardest hitting material to date. The Gospel According to Shawn James & The Shapeshifters is just what the doctor ordered!

The band will be hitting the road April 9 in Fayetteville, AR and will tour throughout the remainder of month and on into May.

Quickly establishing themselves with an impressive body of work and a reputation as a formidable live act with 260 dates in the U.S. and Europe already under their collective belt.
