Reverend Shawn Amos – Breaks it Down

We would like to introduce you to; The Reverend Shawn Amos, a Los Angeles-based, chart-topping bluesman ready to turn any venue into a 1960s’ Chicago blues club. His foot-stomping, harp-wailing performances, guarantee to energize the faithful, and convert the wayward to the Rev’s message of booty-shakin’, deeply joyful blues.

The Rev came up in 1970s Los Angeles, at the feet of musical legends like Marvin Gaye and Quincy Jones, as well as all manner of Hollywood street folk. The son of music agent-turned entrepreneur, Wally “Famous” Amos, and R&B nightclub singer, Shirlee May, Shawn found music early, and has worked within it his
entire adult life. His rich career as a producer includes overseeing new music and retrospectives from R&B blues legends Solomon Burke, John Lee Hooker, and Johnny “Guitar” Watson, and scores of other legacy acts.

“What a tight and exhilarating show, fantastic!”

“The Reverend Shawn Amos, a showman not to be missed!”
