"Sho Love by ShoreShot"

This week’s Music Monday comes from another NJ native using their talent to help raise money for Sandy Relief. Big up to ShoreShot, the brother of our friend Jared Whelan, who has vowed to donate all download revenues from Sho Love (You Survived It) to the Holy Family St. Vincent de Paul Society in Union Beach, NJ. - Jetty

"Urban Music Explosion"

(In reference to ShoreShot's new singles, "One Request(DJ)" and "Steal Her" off "theProgresS Report" album)
"We were impressed with the writing skills, lyrical skills, cadence, delivery, production and flow on each song. We were particularly impressed with the song, "Steal Her." This is a really dope song!!" - Urban Threshold Inc. /


Still working on that hot first release.



The youngest of 3 brothers growing up in a single-parent home just minutes from the JerseyShore beaches, boardwalks, and basketball courts were the backdrop of Patrick Whelan aka ShoreShot's upbringing.

In July of 2010, ShoreShot released his debut album entitled "Slowly but Shorely", which was quickly adopted as an underground soundtrack along the Jersey Shore that summer. Linking up with NJ-based singer/producer, Erich Wald, shortly afterwards, the two hit the studio and began collaborating on ShoreShot's sophomore offering. The result was "The ProgreSS Report" (2012)- a melodic and dynamic journey of HipPopSoulRock rooted in diversity, crowned with originality, and laced with talent. It's a 20 track rocket ship that will take you wherever you want to go, powered by undeniable hits like "One Request (DJ)" and "Steal Her".

In 2013, ShoreShot released a Hurricane Sandy Relief record featuring Erich Wald and the ROBMS (Russell O Brackman Middle School l Barnegat, NJ) chorus called, "Sho Love". The song was created to benefit local families badly affected by the superstorm, where 100% of the online mp3/single proceeds were donated by ShoreShot to Holy Family St. Vincent de Paul Society in Union Beach, NJ.  ShoreShot teamed up with faculty and students from several local elementary and middle schools, including West Belmar Elementary School (Belmar, NJ), Central Elementary School (Wall, NJ), and Emma Havens Elementary School (Brick, NJ).  By a joint effort, ShoreShot was able to help coordinate fundraisers with each school, and donate more proceeds to local hurricane victims. 

In August 2015, ShoreShot unleashed his third album entitled, "Return of the Tide," highlighted by instrumentation from !llmind (producer for Eminem, Kanye West, 50 Cent, Joell Ortiz, etc) and Eric G (producer for Sean Price, Rapsody, L.O.X, etc).  The microphone coast guard rises to the occasion once again, combining his new production with his persevering lyric. From the hard-hitting opener, "Sho Forth," to the nostalgic, retrospective ode to 90's Hip Hop, "Is She Long Gone," to the laid back, "listen after a long day," "Long Way," the seascribe, shores truly, will take you on another spin for the win.

ShoreShot continues to perform at venues/colleges throughout the MidAtlantic region and has opened for acts such as Masta Ace, Mobb Deep, Smif N Wessun, Inspectah Deck, Large Professor, Maino, Nappy Roots, Mic Handz, and more.  College venues include East Stroudsburg University (PA), Iona College (NY), Ramapo College (NJ), Harrisburg Community College (PA), Pratt Institute (NY), and Western Carolina University (NC).  ShoreShot has continued to work with local elementary and middle schools in Monmouth and Ocean County New Jersey, creating ways to give back to his community with students through his music.  ShoreShot also created a theme song for Elite UFC fighter and Jersey native, Frankie "The Answer" Edgar.  The music video released on Facebook in March 2016, received a hundred thousand views in a month, and was picked up by every major MMA blog throughout the country.
