SHONN HINTON & SHOTGUN
ROCK - Classic Rock
Why search the world for great musicians when they’re right in your own backyard? Those were Shonn Hinton’s thoughts when forming the super powerhouse group, Shotgun, in 2014. Although the group had played together for over a decade in Milwaukee, they decided to emerge into their own band that would headline tours, showcasing their pocketed, classic sound. Shotgun’s opportunity to shine came when they performed songs live from Shonn Hinton’s 2014 instrumental Gospel, Rock and Blues album “The Happy Hour LP.” And the reaction from their fan base sealed the deal as their supporters were avidly amazed, along with the movers and shakers of the music industry.
Now, with the wind at their backs, audiences worldwide can rest assured that Shonn Hinton, Olen Franklin, Darrien Williams, Alex Julien, Sean Williamson, Afton Johnson and Terry Jeans Jr. are approaching music’s next great awakening. The debut full length album is due out winter 2016 and promises a full gamet of musical onslaught. “Churchified blues-rock” may be an overall introduction to the sound, but therein lays such a diversity of sound & influence throughout the record that it needs to be heard by music lovers all over the world.
