The last 2 years have been extremely trying for everyone. It's been hard to see the light through all of this darkness. But we are working as hard as ever to make new music, and find great new places to play, so that we can all hopefully heal each other a little bit through music. Hang in there, and lets get through this so we can all be together once again very soon!
Bob Marley Tribute 2021
“Shaw's lyrics throughout the album are refreshingly genuine, intelligent, and introspective. Promise Land keeps a definitive theme throughout its five songs of reconciling the past with the acceptance of not being able to control the world around you. When many songwriters would struggle with these subjects, Shaw seems to draw from a literary well both effortlessly and honestly. ”
