After a year of writing, recording and touring Shaw released his full-length debut album “FELT,” a solid mix of classic and melodic rock, filled with an authentic sentiment and feel good vibe.

After nonstop touring in 2017 Shaw decided to release a live video series. Today California Rocker is pleased to premiere the live video for his song “Bask In Your Smile,” which includes a special appearance from Shaw’s beautiful teenage daughter Taylor on backing vocals.


Shaw navigates the complexities of day-to-day life through song. Inviting, approachable and thoughtfully efficient, Shaw’s album ‘FELT’ reflects this. Some of these tunes are solemn, while others smile along with you as Shaw is a versatile arranger, and he flexes his musical instincts to great effect on this debut record.  ‘FELT’ is one of those albums that need to be in any music fan’s collection, it is that good.
