Shane Simonsen's 2011 release "Brackish Waters" experiments with acoustic, voice and electronic instruments reaching for an authentic middle ground. With this approach he showcases a series of songs on subjects ranging in the realms of faith, deception and commercialism.

“It’s an exploration of being hopeful in a jaded world,” says Shane who wrote and produced the album.
