Shawn James and the Shapeshifters

Wooooo!! This has been on repeat for more than a half hour just because it is THAT good! This cover of John Legend’s ‘Who Did That To You’  from the Django Unchained Soundtrack is some kind of amazing. His voice is so good it raised my pores from the first note I heard him sing.

Of course I had to research and find more music from him and I found a few songs from a project entitled ‘The Wolf’. This was in the About section on the site:

“The Wolf is the first in a set (The Shapeshifter Trilogy) of 3 concept EPs that Shawn James is releasing in 2013 under the name Shawn James & the Shapeshifters.
The Wolf is a haunting, folk story of a man who was raised by wolves. Shawn’s unique, powerful songwriting mixed with the beautiful, orchestral layers of the Shapeshifters makes for an unforgettable musical experience.

He plans to release The Bear in the springtime and says that it will have more of an old, rowdy, blues sound with swampy, slide guitar.

Hawk is planned for the fall of this year and will be written on piano.

Shawn James is definitely one to watch in 2013.

I listened to those songs and they are beautiful and as they said, he is definitely one to watch in 2013. He surely gained one fan tonight.

What do you think of the cover? Comment below and let me know.
