Northern California native, now Nashville-based, Shane Dwight is a young American Roots Music artist for the 21st century – a killer blues player who can rock the house all night long with the best of them, and an introspective singer-songwriter whose voice rings true at alt-country, Americana, R&B, and flat-out Rock N Roll. There is no pigeonhole for Shane Dwight, and no single corral can hold this bucking bronco. Shane's talent is so fierce and his inspiration so strong that his music draws in equal measure from classic blues and urban R&B, from alt-country and modern rock without compromising his integrity or missing a beat.
Shane Dwight cut his teeth on the rough and tumble East Side of San Jose California, where his natural talents were influenced by the neighborhood's diverse musical undercurrents. He became proficient at various styles, and played in jazz and rock bands before finding his groove with the blues. Shane's popularity spread quickly, and in 2002 he easily won the Monterey Blues Festival Battle of the Bands. Since that time Shane has released several self-produced CDs and kept up a hectic schedule, appearing at countless clubs and festival Main Stages including Florida's "Springing the Blues" Festival , Monterey Blues Festival, the Portland Waterfront Blues Festival, the San Diego Blues Festival, and many more; Shane's energetic performances and charismatic appeal have made him a repeat performer on the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruises; Shane provided the house band for the nationally televised "Microsoft Insider Live", appeared twice as a featured guest on Elwood Blues' House of Blues Radio Hour, and received airplay on hundreds of radio stations worldwide.
Recently, Shane moved to Nashville, Tennessee and signed with the prestigious Intrepid Artists booking agency. This year he'll be performing over 150 shows throughout the US, Canada and Mexico. On June 23, 2009 he will be releasing his first TWO internationally-distributed CDs. Shane Dwight's rocket is definitely on the rise, and this is shaping up to be a one hell of a year for this genre-busting artist.
