Shawn is one of those rare individuals that can lead or take direction. His teaching abilities reveal his passion for his art form and a commitment to the dissemination of the culture it is borrowed from. I would recommend him highly for most any situation.” May 31, 2012 - Hamilton Press


Still working on that hot first release.



HENNESSEY BONFIRE is the world pop project of songwriter and percussionist Shawn Hennessey (Leana Song). Their debut "Let's Get Carried Away" is a prophetic melting-pot of honest songs, world percussion, luscious harmonies and gang vocals. Shawn played and recorded most of the instruments himself, in various lofts and studios from 2008-2012. The tunes are both epic and personal; simple and deep; contemplative and full of love. The band features both ancient and futurist sounds and instrumentation with Dijon (tabla), Nezih Antakli (cajon drumset), Elliot Garland (Electric bass), Gina Ferrera (TrapKatControllerist) and Shawn Hennessey (nylon guitar). Rooted in African, Mediterranean, Cuban, and Indian grooves, HENNESSEY BONFIRE delivers intimate performances of lush organic music, while keeping songwriting and soulful delivery at the helm.
Music composed by Shawn Hennessey (Leana Song, Oud Blues, Gina Ferrera's Gyil Fusion Project, Disco Biscuits) and arranged by HENNESSEY BONFIRE.
