The best kept secret in music


"Review for Splendorgrass"

“For those unaware, Splendorgrass combines the sounds of surf, cow punk, rockabilly, pop and 1980’s alt-rock. The musicianship is top-notch and their CD Hi, How Are You? is among the best produced I’ve ever heard on a local level. I urge readers to check them out ASAP.” - Syracuse NewTimes

"Quote for Splendorgrass"

“Whether they’re amped up or strumming cleanly, this New York trio uses ethereal harmonies to counterpoint driving music. Single minded and seductive.” -

"2 quotes for splendorgrass"

“Digital Hank in an intergalactic western romp”

“Be prepared for punky and western mutant upstate cow-persons on a musical rampage. Original tunes with a twist.”
- Pete Knapp-President Shut Eye Records/Flyer from Joyus Lake, Woodstock, NY

Feeling a bit camera shy


It all began in 1986 with the Country Cousins, his father’s original and cover country band. In high school there was the 80’s rock band (Hot Pursuit), in college the 90’s alternative group (9 Ball) and the post-punk fury of The Fiascoes. In 1997 a home was found in Splendorgrass, an all-original, alt-country trio, which toured the East Coast. This included a performance at Woodstock ’99. The rhythm section of Splendorgrass then created The Honey Wagon, a classic outlaw-country cover band that performed regionally across New York State. Shawn has relocated to Atlanta, GA, and has recently performed with a Grammy Nominated Country artist. It is songwriters like Lyle Lovett, Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson that continue to drive Shawn to perform.
