They called James Brown the “hardest working man in show business” and it would be no understatement to call Shawn Kellerman the “hardest playing blues guitarist” on the scene today. Shawn is recognized as one of the most powerful stage performers you will ever see. He literally puts every ounce of mental and physical energy into his music. Expressive, dynamic and technically outstanding, Shawn continues to build on his past experiences and push the boundaries of traditional blues into modern territory by adding in some soul, funk and rock influences. Sitting up close at a live performance is truly an awesome, jaw dropping experience.
"Kellerman's leads on stage were tough and tasty, never pandering to the lowest common denominator." ... Hal Horowitz - Blues Revue
"Shawn hit the stage smoking with energy and left it dripping in sweat." ... Tim Holek (Blues on Stage Internet Review)
