The Reverend Shawn Amos

With a motto of “keeping the Blues alive one gig at a time,” New York native The Reverend Shawn Amos spent his early years attending film school, but found his calling in songwriting and composition. With Harlem, Amos gained attention for his Roots Rock approach and storytelling. A few years later, he released his third album, Thank You Shirl-ee May: A Love Story, in honor of his late mother, singer Shirlee Ellis Amos. His new album, The Reverend Shawn Amos Loves You, is a completely fresh approach to an old-school sound with tracks like “Joliet Bound,” “Boogie,” and “Will You Be Mine.”
