Show Review

It's about time Baeble found a little soul...and to think, it only took one of the genre's preeminent, modern voices to get us to come around. Shot on the spectacular shores of the Long Island Sound, Ryan Shaw's sunset performance is a rousing, feel good kind of affair. It's also incredibly unique. Known for his modern interpretations on classic Soul and R&B charts, Shaw instead previewed a bulk of new, original material at this benefit concert for Kayak for a Cause in Norwalk CT. Of course if you've been following Shaw's career, there is no need to worry. Shaw and his incredibly talented band still leave plenty of time to "Do the 45". - david pitz

Artist Bio

Born December 26, 1980, in Decatur, GA, to a deeply religious family, Ryan Shaw began singing in the Pentecostal church when he was only three years old, taking his first solo when he was five. Music, specifically, religious music, continued to be an all-important part of his life, and while he was enrolled at Georgia State University he tried out, and made the cut, for a part in a gospel musical. In 1998 he dropped out of school and joined the cast of Tyler Perry's I Know I've Been Changed, moving to New York to perform, and when the play's run ended, he found work singing old Motown hits, dance songs from the 1950s and '60s (many of which were unfamiliar to Shaw, who had listened to little secular music before leaving Georgia), and as a member of the band the Fabulous Soul Shakers, which he joined in 2004. The group's guitarist, Johnny Gale, convinced his friend Jimmy Bralower to check the young singer out, and in 2006, after being impressed by what he heard, Bralower, a percussionist and producer, invited Shaw and Gale to his home to record a short demo. This got the attention of Columbia, and in 2007, This Is Ryan Shaw, a collection of covers from artists like Wilson Pickett, Bobby Womack, and Jackie Wilson, as well as some original songs, was released. - all music guide
