|Shawn McDonald’s Live In Seattle Hits Stores 4/26
25 April 2005
Shawn McDonald, whose 2004 debut album SIMPLY NOTHING was deemed a “stunning pop/folk debut” by CCM magazine for its “inventiveness, honesty and raw emotion,” will release his first full-length concert disc, LIVE IN SEATTLE, on April 26, 2005.
Recorded at Mars Hill Church this past January in the artist’s hometown, LIVE IN SEATTLE captures a 12-song acoustic set featuring McDonald on voice and guitar, Neal Vickers on guitar and cello, background vocals by Cara Flory, plus in-studio contributions from Matt Slocum (Sixpence None The Richer). Among the selections are SIMPLY NOTHING hits “Gravity” and “All I Need,” brand new works “Perfectly Done” and “Home,” a version of “Over The Rainbow,” and “Without You,” a once independent McDonald track.
Unforgettably, Shawn also shares his personal testimony on LIVE IN SEATTLE, recounting onstage his dramatic journey from substance abuse and drug dealing just a few years ago to a life-changing encounter with Jesus that inspired him to begin writing and performing music.
“I feel like what I do is best done live,” says McDonald. “Performing live gives me an opportunity to connect with people on a real level, and the audience that night was unbelievable. It was great to be able to share the evening with so many of my friends and family members from home.”
LIVE IN SEATTLE releases to stores everywhere April 26. Two new singles from SIMPLY NOTHING, “Open Me” and “Take My Hand,” have also just been released to radio stations around the country.
