Shawn Amos is a jack-of-all-trades. He is a singer-songwriter, as record producer and CEO of Freshwire, a digital creation company that was bought by Omnicom and they insisted he keep running it.
He is the youngest son of Wally Amos, the founder of the "Famous Amos" chocolate chip cookie empire.
Amos has been profiled on National Public Radio (NPR), as well as in songwriter magazines.
His newest EP "The Reverend Shawn Amos Tells It" consists of six tracks, two of which were written by Amos. "The overarching thing for me was that a lot of the blues has been reduced to bar band's music and my blueprint since the beginning of this was to stick to a particular time frame such as the 1950s and 1960s in the Chicago realm, since that is where the blues was born and I wanted to pay homage to that moment in time. That was my guiding principle," he said.
Amos continued, "We recorded the album in December and I spent the first seven months playing live just learning the songs and doing them justice. I was getting immersed in that Chicago blues catalog."
He has been influenced by the classics, which include such innovators as Robert Johnson, Son House, Leadbelly and Memphis Minnie.
From his newest EP, Amos listed the closing track "Sometimes I Wonder" as his personal favorite due to its "simplistic message," yet his favorite cover tune on the record is the opener "Hoodoo Man Blues."
Throughout his career, he has collaborated with the iconic R&B sensation Solomon Burke when Shawn was a Vice President of A&R at Shout! Factory Records. They became close friends ever since, and Solomon was the godfather to Shawn's oldest daughter, as well as a major influence in his music. "He was so gracious and I played with him on stage. He was very generous in every way and I miss him so much. The guy was an amazing singer and an amazing spirit and he was very impactful to me and my family," he said.
