We’ve been hitting the rock scene hard lately (see “My Weekend with The Yawpers and Blackfoot Gypsies” and “Rock and Roll Revival”), and we’ve got another one on the books for you Colorado! This Thursday, Arkansas’ rockin’ five-piece Shawn James & The Shapeshifters play Summit Music Hall’s Moon Room. With elements of bluegrass, folk, and metal intertwined into their rock roots, this show is bound to be a heavy-hitter with Colorado music fans.
This July, the band will release their newest album, On The Shoulders of Giants, with presales beginning May 7th. SJATS recently dropped their first single from the album, the roaring, guitar-heavy “Hellhound”. It’s a perfect showcase of James’ strong baritone vocals, howled over subtle percussion, catchy guitar riffs, and a droning violin. The track is a powerful introduction to On The Shoulders of Giants, an album full of swampy beats, banjos, slide guitars, bluesy melodies, and James’ captivating vocals.

Shawn James is no stranger to these parts either. Not long ago, he filmed the music video below at the Colorado Springs Wolf Sanctuary. The howling artist had no problem making furry friends:
So roll with us to the Moon Room this Thursday 05.05 (yes it's Cinco de Mayo kids)! We’ll be there covering press and tickets are only $10 in advance; doors at 7PM. See you there for a night of rock!
