A new artist and a new sound; find both in one place, and you've really got something. Music fans will discover a wealth of talent, insight, and fresh creativity on Simply Nothing, the debut album from Seattle singer-songwriter Shawn McDonald.
Having journeyed through childhood abandonment and then substance abuse, Shawn McDonald later found faith in God. Gracefully, his past now helps him encourage young people facing their own personal demons in a way that is rare indeed. Shawn has been there, so to speak, and he brings new hope to listeners with music marked by cool coffeehouse acoustics, soulful singing, and unique orchestral coloring.

Simply Amazing!| Posted May 26, 2009
Simplly Nothing is Shawn McDonald's first, and still my favorite, album (of his) released. It has great acoustic sounds/amazing lyrics/and great vocals. The album focuses on life issues of searching, struggling, questioning, and pain.
The entire album is fantastic, but my favorite songs are Take My Hand, Simply Nothing, and All I Need. He brings a unique flair to each song and stands out in the christain industry.
Rock is my passion, but it is nice to mix things up a bit with some great acoustics and some amazing vocals.
