"Shawn is a master balladeer & troubador" (Remo
Ricaldone - American Roots Radio, Italy)
"On Saturday night I caught singer/songwriter Shawn
Taylor at Acoustic Café. He has a wonderfully damaged voice - a sort
of Tom Waits 'I gargle cinder blocks in the morning' growl, but less of a put-on than Waits'
bark. His lyrics dabble in a wonderful gritty naturalism that's
uncommon around here... check him out."
