Best known for his top ten hit, Lullaby, Shawn Mullins' musical accomplishments include a dozen self-produced records, two number one charting songs, a grammy nomination and thousands of live performances. One of his favorite accomplishments was the decision of the Austrailian Olympic Team to use his song Shimmer as their anthem.

Since we last heard from Shawn Mullins on 2008's honeydew, the Atlanta-based singer/songwriter/bandleader has undergone a series of transformative experiences, leading to a "second coming" for the veteran artist. Evidence of Mullins' newfound level of musical and lyrical ambition courses comes through with his new album on Vanguard, Light You Up. This captivating new song cycle will likely be viewed as a flat-out revelation even by Mullins' most fervent fans.

Mullins is active observer of life, translating life into song. His musical experiences included an indoctrination into the collaborative creative process by numerous bouts of intensive co-writing, in one instance putting him atop of the country charts via a key contribution to the Zac Brown Band's "Toes," marking his third #1 single, following 1999's "Lullaby" and the 2006 Triple A/Americana chart-topper "Beautiful Wreck." Further co- writing yielded nine of the 11 songs on the new album, which Mullins believes represents the strongest, most expressive writing of his distinguished career.

"Light You Up" is overflowing with perfect rhymes, telling detail and underlying intimations. This is uncommonly literate stuff, striking in its insightfulness and compassion. Delivered by Mullins in his companionable baritone, as lived-in and textured as your favorite pair of faded jeans, amid the relentless rhythms, churning Hammond organ runs and swooping guitar lines, every line is absolutely spellbinding, adding incrementally to the album's gripping intensity. "I felt like I needed to get the listener's attention with this record," says Shawn. He can consider that a mission accomplished.
