Contemporary songwriting from the New South
Atlanta singer-songwriter Shawn Mullins has had major adult alternative radio hits with "Lullaby and "Beautiful Wreck," and he recently co-wrote the great country number-one "Toes"—the perfect song for when the weather in Michigan is turning ugly. Shawn writes introspective original songs in an Americana framework that sound great either solo or with a band. He's been called Jewel with a Y chromosome, and he's looking like he's going to match her career staying power. Shawn's music is overflowing with perfect rhymes, telling detail and underlying glimpses of truth. This is uncommonly literate stuff, striking in its insightfulness and compassion, all delivered by Mullins in a companionable baritone. Shawn Mullins is something of an undiscovered treasure of Southern songwriting.
