The Reverend Shawn Amos is a Los Angeles-based, chart-topping bluesman ready to turn any venue into a 1960s’ Chicago blues club. His foot-stomping, harp-wailing performances, like tent revivals of yore, energize the faithful, and convert the wayward to the Rev’s message of booty-shakin’, deep joyful blues.
The Rev came up in 1970s Los Angeles, at the feet of musical legends like marvin Gaye and Quincy Jones, as well as all manner of Hollywood street folk. The son of muysic agent-turned entrepreneur, Wally “Famous” Amos, and R&B nightclub singer, Shirlee May, Shawn found music early, and has worked within it his entire life. His rich career as a producer includes overseeing new music and retrospectives from R&B legends Solomon Burke, John Lee Hooker, and Johnny “Guitar” Watson, and scores of other legendary acts.
