Shawn Harvey is an established UK singer, songwriter, guitarist, multi-instrumentalist and producer. He has a large international fan base and is well respected amongst other musicians world wide. For over a decade he has written and recorded Country, Rockabilly and Blues.
Several European Rock'n'Roll bands have covered his songs live, and recently, Dutch Country singer Shannah has recorded a cover version of 'Haystack Life' from the 'In The Hills' album.

Shawn was born in Plymouth, England, and grew up in a small tin-mining town in rural Cornwall to the sounds of Country, Rock'n'Roll and Blues, a love for which shines through in his music to this day. He started playing guitar and writing songs at the age of 13.

Shawn has developed his own distinctive style, taking bits from his early influences and adding a dose of his own personality. The result is Country Rockabilly as original as a 50's original and every bit as exciting.

His live performances are electric and show his musical talent as a singer and guitarist. Years of working on the road from as early as 14 have made him a true pro and it shows at gigs.

But when in the studio, Shawn's biggest talent of all shines through; the ability to write exciting, catchy songs and produce potentially chart topping tunes.

Being a competent photographer and video editor, Shawn has a clear idea of his image and gets involved in the art direction of all his projects.

Shawn has international chart success on the internet, repeated Top 20 chart positions, with several global No. 1's on sites such as Besonic and Soundclick, regular internet radio play and has gained a large world wide following of Country and Rockabilly lovers who enjoy his music.

Why this name?
I was originally called "Ricky Fentone" and my old group name was "The Flat Top Cats", now I decided for my real name as it is more timeless and across the board like my music style...it doesn't need fashion changes.
Do you play live?
Uk and Europe I enjoy gigging with the right band.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It has made it more accessible for the talented many who often can't convince record companies in their lead lined walls. It's a good thing!
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
If I was offered, I think yes but I'd have to read the small print:). But when opportunity strikes take it!
