Sounds | Tash Sultana, Through The Valley


Dit had eigenlijk een double-header moeten zijn: het sobere, pakkende, geladen origineel van Shawn James PLUS de meer upbeat en gelaagde cover van Tash Sultana. Kiezen is verliezen, maar gezien Tash net iets dichter bij ons hart ligt en Shawn nog een aantrekkelijke stranger.... Beide nummers zijn vanzelfsprekend gelinkt aan de Playstation game The Last Of Us Part II.


Luister ook naar: het origineel van Shawn James natuurlijk, die er op 5 juni een mooie video bij lanceerde



ter info

Gezien Tash Sultana hier al meermaals aan bod is gekomen, de focus is Shawn James


While growing up in Chicago’s south side, Shawn James experienced the power of soul music. His blend of blues, folk & soul music contrasts dark and light, angerand joy, gritty and authentic.


Shawn James launched his career with his first full length album “Shadows” and since then he hasn’t stopped. He’s constantly on the road averaging 175 shows per year. He’s toured extensively across Europe and the United States headlining sold out shows and independently building his loyal faithful fan base.


Along with Shawn’s extensive roadwork, his songs have been featured on network and cable TV shows (CBS, HBO) and in Sony Playstation’s blockbuster game “The Last of Us 2”. His track “Through the Valley” garnered the top spot on Spotify’s Global Viral Charts. Shawn’s streams have topped 65 million across Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube and continue to rise.


With three full length works + a live album under his belt, Shawn James is set to release new music throughout the remainder of 2018 and all of 2019. Beginning in the fall of 2018, Shawn will release new work on Parts + Labor Records produced and recorded by Jimmy Messer (Awolnation, Kelly Clarkson, Kygo, The White Buffalo). Check back on his socials for updates and new releases.
