Description:
Shawn Ash is a singer/songwriter who lives in Lake County Florida. He has been writing original music and performing with various bands since his early 20's. He gained his love of all music from his father who collected and listened to various genres of music (NittyGritty Dirt Band, Peter Frampton, Pink Floyd, Charlie Daniels, Boston, Journey) to name a few. In 2010 he was signed to an independent publishing label, Reign Forever Group, out of Atlanta, GA and wrote and recorded "Don't Take the Beer" with his good friend CJ Solar, which saw some success on Radio and digital media. Harold "Self" Chisholm saw potential and requested another single to cut so Shawn sat down with Producer/Sound Engineer/Musician/Singer - Paul Gasparro, owner and operator of End Of Autumn (EOA) Studios in Atlanta, GA and wrote "This Ones Gonna Hurt". Shawn started work on laying down the track, however in 2012, he decided to move back to Orlando, Florida to be closer to his family after going through a divorce. In 2013 he met the love of his life and after some encouragement from her he got back into writing, singing, and performing. Now Shawn regularly performs at The Villages - Squares (Brownwood, Lake Sumter, & Spanish Springs), Bars (City Fire) as well as Various Country Clubs and Whispering Oaks Winery in Oxford, FL.

Dreams and ambitions:
I am a lyricist, vocalist, and have a sound base in music theory but have never learned piano or guitar. I have written close to hundred original songs some of which were with my good friend CJ Solar, who wrote last years #1 "Up Down" - Morgan Wallen and continues to write hit songs for both himself and cuts with mainstream country artists. One of which got me signed for a short time with a label out of Atlanta, GA, Reign Forever Group, which lead to my first single "Don't Take the Beer" , music video, and the label putting together a band and work on a second single "This Ones Gonna Hurt" which never got released. Flash forward to 2020 and I live in Lake County, FL were I perform at the bars and clubs in the area anywhere between 15 to 20 times a month. I have a knack for writing lyrics and coming up with hooks that are in line with the current radio and media releases. My ultimate ambition is to be an independent writer for labels and artists, ultimately resulting in some of my cuts charting in the top 10.

Sample lyrics:


Anywhere
Shawn Ash (c) 2010

Verse:
Like  a couple on their first date
You can see it in their eyes
Or that singer at the movies
 On the screen he found his bride
In a church, at a bar, on a beach in Panama
It really is that simple, anyplace at all

Verse:
Like that young man with his first dog
He’s got a friend for life
Or the old man in the graveyard
(Build)
Laying down flowers for his wife

Chorus:
You don’t have to search real hard
You shouldn’t have to wait too long
It can happen in the blink of an eye
When the right one comes along
It’s universal ‘n’ spoken…  everywhere (crescendo)
Sometimes it’s in the air (soft)
So just keep one eye open, you can find it
 Anywhere

Verse:
Like a soldier on the front lines
Fighting to keep us free
Or that single mom working two jobs
Just so her kids can eat

On a bus, at the mall, in a store down aisle three
Not hard to find just look and you’ll see

Like a doctor taking the oath
For all  life til the end
Or those high school sweethearts
(Build)
 50 years through thick and thin 

Chorus:
You don’t have to search real hard
You shouldn’t have to wait too long
It can happen in the blink of an eye
Or until the right one comes along
It’s universal and spoken everywhere (crescendo)
Sometimes it’s even in the air (soft)
So just keep one eye open and you can find it……Anywhere

Bridge:
It’s a fact of life, sometimes a cold hard truth
It makes the world go round even if you don’t want it to
It’s that scene in a movie or a verse in a song
It’s that look she gets when it’s been there all along

On a boat, in a train, or pumping gas on two
Once you find it there’s only one thing left to do

Chorus Out: (Raised)
You don’t have to search real hard
You shouldn’t have to wait too long
It can happen in the blink of an eye
When the right one comes along
It’s universal and spoken everywhere
Sometimes it’s in the air
So just keep one eye open
Yeah just keep one eye open
And you can find it…..
Anywhere
