The Reverend Shawn Amos
The Reverend Shawn Amos is a 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 Revs message of booty-shakin, deeply 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 music agent-turned entrepreneur, Wally Famous Amos, and R&B nightclub singer, Shirlee May, Shawn found music early, and has worked within it his entire adult life. His rich career as a producer includes overseeing new music and retrospectives from R&B blues legends Solomon Burke, John Lee Hooker, and Johnny Guitar Watson, and scores of other legacy acts.

As a performer, Shawn released a series of semi-autobiographical albums in the 90s and early aughts, work lauded by NPR, Elmore Magazine, Los Angeles Times and American Songwriter. His exploring, chronicling, and preserving of black American music became a soul journey, leading Shawn back to the blues songbook, and a transformation into the passionate, exuberant Reverend. Through the Rev, Shawn's commitment to this distinctly American art form burns strong; the time to nurture and share the blues is now.

Current release, The Reverend Shawn Amos Loves You, spent two weeks at Number One on the Roots Music Reports Top 50 Contemporary Blues Album Chart, received international praise, and landed the Rev on Sirius/XM radio, NPR, WNYC, several Best Of 2015 lists, in the New York Post, on ABC, and Fox 5 NY.

Spreading the gospel of the blues, of joy, resilience, and togetherness, one gig at a time.
