The Reverend Shawn Amos is an artist based in Los Angeles, a bluesman of success ready to convert any venue worthy of a Chicago blues club of the 60s. His blunt and emotional live is a trip to past times, to a evangelical tent loaded with energetic faith ready to convert the most obstinate with the message of the Reverend, loaded with melodies that will make your boots dance and a deeply happy blues.
The Rev emerged in the 70s in Los Angeles, in the wake of music legends such as Marvin Gaye and Quincy Jones, as well as all kinds of street musicians. Son of musical and enterprising agent Wally ‘Famous’ Amos and rhythm’n’blues singer Shirleey May, Shawn soon found music and has worked in it all his adult life. His rich career as a producer includes the supervision of new music and retrospectives of the music of R&B legends such as Solomon Burke, John Lee Hooker or Johny ‘Guitar’ Watson, among many other legends.
For a few years he worked as A& at the Rhino label, participating, producing or creating albums of great significance, including the Grammy-nominated retrospective “Rhapsodies in Black: Music and Words from the Harlem Renaissance”.
A true blues preacher with a seductive voice and a way to play the harmonica that transforms the listener into a true believer with the first note.
