“I’m just into fusing sounds to create something new,” says
Shea. “I want to keep the tunes and vibe
accessible, take risks and yet retain something
people can sink their teeth into. Yes I do want
to create something unique, and I also know that
I am a summation of everything I’ve listened
to growing up, but I still want to put a twist
on it to create a unique feeling for the listener.”
“Since I can remember, my dream was to
be a high-note man in a big band. I listened to
all the great jazz trumpet players growing up.
My limited hockey career put an end to my teeth
and trumpet playing. After a few root canals I
started writing music and this is the culmination
of my past experiences.”
- THE BIO
is a Canadian singer/songwriter that has released
his 3rd CD, “Go It Alone”. At once nutty
and sarcastic, while other times intimate and intelligent,
“Go It Alone”, marks an unusual meeting
of creative ambition and pop sensibility. His songs
carefully introduce a variety of musical styles.
His voice, piano and interesting lyrics create an
explorative musical environment that straddles the
spectrum of pop.
Shea is a wavy red-headed man who took to his
family’s $15 piano (the bench cost $45)
at the age of 7, and hasn’t come up for
air since. Horns have long played a big part in
Shea’s life. He started playing trumpet
at 11 and started writing music at 16.
His persuasive use of words, philosophical themes,
and tales of travel, make his 3rd CD a true reflection
of the author.
