Temptation Independent Release
The music of Shawn Harris is fresh, with a unique blend of spiritual flavor.
His voice carries you to an unknown atmosphere and the music, all written by Harris himself, paint brushes his vision with spirituality and utter forgiveness. Harris is a man that has been broken and put back together again through faith and perseverance. "Memories chain my soul," Harris recites in "Memories," as he discovers that through his past experiences, strength can be found. The driving acoustic guitar creates perfect timing with Harris' voice, echoing a very eerie yet uplifting vibe that will make you question what you're feeling. The music often mimics Harris' voice, but suddenly will take on a new Middle Eastern tone. Songs such as "Fallen From Grace" and "Keeping Hope Alive" are short in theory but manage to get their message across in minutes. This is one of those CDs that will hit you after the second or third listen. Listeners will find this effort an intriguing and innovative discovery.
Temptation is hard to pigeonhole into one particular category of music because it ventures through various styles based on Harris' often falsetto voice and creativity of the music that's behind it.
