Hi, my name is Shane. I began classical piano training at age 4. By age 14 I won a National Talent Competition, cut a record with Capital Records and was given a monetary music scholarship for the Julliard School of Music in New York City.
I began honing my talents in the AGAC American Guild of Actors and Composers in New York, of which I am very grateful; and continued writing music, performed in off-Broadway musical productions, sang in various clubs, and recorded with top producers at Philadelphia International Records. However, the money I received in the music business was not enough to pay a mortgage, bills & music career expenses.
I switched careers and worked as a Sr. Corrections Officer. On my days off, I entertained patients in hospitals & nursing homes.
On September 11th, 2001, I was called to Respond to the Urgent Crisis in New York City and worked 4 long grueling months as Team Leader of the1st Responders of C.I.S.M.'s International Critical Incident Stress Management team and 2nd in Command (and “foot” soldier) to Head Director Roland Kandle.
Years later while still recovering from the nightmarish traumas I endured from that horrific assignment, I finally rediscovered my music talents again. My music saved my life and my spirit. Soon, I began singing and recording songs again. I picked up where I left off retaining my many good memories with my music; and it again became my gift from God.
I, also, attended La Salle University and Camden County College. My studies included Industrial Relations, Contract Compliance, Contract Performance, Bargaining and Agreement, Psychology & Law. I earned the highest honors, Golden Key Phi Theta Kappa and PSI Beta.
Today I am a proud member of NARAS (National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences) & Voting Member with the Grammy Organization. My inspirational songs have touched many lives and healed many hearts while winning prestigious awards throughout the entertainment industry. I, also, helped counsel, educate, and feed a lot of people in the communities as elected Executive Vice President of one of LA's Chambers of Commerce; and was an active member of LA's Biz Fed Organization. It's been quite a journey for me throughout my life and various careers in government, business and music. However, I am thankful for the many good leaders that made a positive impact in my life and helped keep me focused on our mutual goals for world peace.
Currently, my new "FREEDOM" Album was nominated in 16 Categories on the previous Grammy Ballot. I am thankful to the team of talented Award-Winning Producers/Engineers and Artists who recorded with me and who helped greatly by listening to me, believing in me and respecting my God-given talents.
I am, also, thankful for the reputable organizations who support and promote Artists like myself around the world. To God I give all the glory.
Thank you for your time.
