On stage Shawn Doom is somewhat of an enigma. The 19 year old singer/songwriter is able to follow even the hardest rock bands, exuding a quiet confidence. Accompanied only by guitar and sometimes harmonica, Doom gracefully goes from song to song, saying very little in between, letting the music flow and dictate the mood of the room. The same room that had just been full of blazing guitars, throbbing drums, surging vocals, and screaming fans, is now silent. Simply put, when you hear Shawn Doom, you listen.
With his near four-octave voice and virtuoso guitar playing, Doom uses simple words to examine the complexities of life, death, love, purpose, and God. Accepted by fans of all genres, he draws on inspirations such as The Beatles, Harry Nilsson, Tim and Jeff Buckley, Bob Dylan, Keith Green, and The Zombies, to create haunting, almost cinematic songs that must be listened to multiple times to realize the layers of meaning throughout.
