Shane Dwight - Blues on the Coast 2013
Blues on the Coast presents charismatic blues/rock guitarist Shane Dwight http://www.shanedwight.com/
Two years ago, Shane rocked his Point Arena and beyond fans with a mean guitar and gripping vocals. Now he'll be back for an encore on Saturday June 1, at 8:30 pm.
Shane is a charismatic and supremely talented guitarist, soulful vocalist, prolific songwriter and one of the brightest young up-and-coming stars on the rock/blues scene today. In the last two years, the Shane Dwight Band has been catapulted to the forefront of the West Coast Blues Scene.
Shane has headlined and performed at some of the biggest music festivals around the world, including Beale Street Music Festival, Bayfront Blues Festival, Bethlehem Musikfest, Ottawa Bluesfest and Portland Waterfront Blues Festival and he has performed with and/or shared the stage with a wide variety of some of the biggest names in music: B.B. King, Los Lobos, Los Lonely Boys, Night Ranger, The Marshall Tucker Band, Johnny Winter, Etta James, The Doobie Brothers and Jimmie Vaughan, to name a few.
Born on the East Side of San Jose and raised on a horse ranch in Morgan Hill, California, he moved to Nashville to further pursue his musical career. Within six months of living there, he quickly earned a reputation as a "guitar slinger." The Nashville City Paper called him one of Music City's prime guitar warriors and the critics always seem to agree, "He plays a mean guitar, whether he's rocking, delving into roots, alt-country, R&B, or hitting you in the gut with searing, straight-ahead blues he plays and sings with charisma, heart, and energy." (Toledo Blade)
His latest release, A Hundred White Lies consists of mostly original songs written by Shane during a sad, dark period in his life, the break up with his wife. As the title track states, it all began with "A Hundred White Lies." "She Struts 22" is about the temptations that all artists go through while on the road. "Love's Last Letter" and "Broken" are songs written about the pain of separation; and "True Love's Gone" sums it all up.
"One of the best, if not the best Blues/Rock release, so far for 2011"
