Shawn McDonald

The most unique sound that reaches the ear upon listening to “Roots” isn’t the sinewy, snaking interplay of percussion and bass, or the empyrean voices wafting through the ether. Nor is it the watery, warbling guitars, skewed tinkling of toy piano, drowsily yawning horns or reedy wheezes of accordion, though those rich sonic textures definitely ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!!!! August 11, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I heard his song " gravity " on the radio and ever since I wanted to know more about this artist. I just got the cd today and it's totally a huge blessing. God used this artist in a huge way to transform a fresh and new prescence of Him. The song

" beautiful " and " don't walk away " are totally awesome. As soon as you start to listen to this cd in your room and just close your eyes you immediately feel something beautiful. I gave this cd 5 star because the guitar play is very good, the vocals and rhythm both rock. If you like Jason Upton, you will definately like Shawn Mcdonald. Thank you Jesus for such a great piece of work.

5.0 out of 5 stars This CD is definitely worth your attention December 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I find that a lot of loud music, (Christian or not) just doesn't hit the spot for me. Occasionally I'll come across an artist who sparks my interest with one or two songs. Shawn McDonald sparked my interest immediately with "Take this Life," and "Have You Ever." This guy is singing and playing to inspire others, change their lives and bring them closer to God. His music is real, sincere, and doesn't have to blast your ears off to impress you; rather, he'll impress you with his lyrics, story, and beautiful guitar work. I love the guitar work on "Have You Ever," and "Open Me." If anybody wants the guitar tab for Shawn McDonald check out [...] I plan to post the tab for "Have You Ever" there sometime soon as an effort to spread music as great as this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Feet September 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I am very impressed by the album. Both the music & the lyrics are obviously inspired and not just thrown together to make a buck. I bought the album for a specific song I'd heard on the radio, but I have found the entire album to be filled with wonderful music that honors our God & our ears! Thanks!

5.0 out of 5 stars a page out of my hearts journal July 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is a great album. I am not one to exaggerate. I put this cd in my car two weeks ago and haven't yet tired of it. His lyrics really remind you of what an amazing God we serve. I am so thankful that there is someone out there like me who hasn't had a glistening clean life but finally gave their heart over to Christ and has true peace. This album will inspire you, and in this world we need all the help we can get.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, Acoustic and Soulful Debut August 23, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This CD is so beautiful to listen to, and very impressive both musically and in a faith inspiring way. Shawn projects emotion that is both real and mature for such a young artist. I typically like one-off's from various Christian artists, but this is honestly the first time I've been so inspired by one artist as to buy their CD versus a compilation of top hit songs. There is not a song on this CD that I don't like, but I particularly like track 4, 5, and 8 as well as the often-played track 2, Gravity. Soothe your aching soul...listen to this CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome. January 2, 2005
Format:Audio CD
With a lot of these songs, I get the feel of the moments of weakness when you're as far down as you can get and you're crying out to God for forgiveness and salvation. Every song is amazing and has a message from the heart of a man who has humbled himself before the Lord. It is ery easy to love this music.

5.0 out of 5 stars hooked June 27, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I was immediatly captivated by "Take My Hand" when I first heard it on the radio because it's so different from the majority of today's Christian music. The seemingly mundane and repetitive tunes of most religious artists has driven me to alternative music, in fact the last Christian cd I bought was DC Talk's Jesus Freak, but I just couldn't pass this one up. Shawn's innovative style really makes it stand out - His heartfelt passion and conviction is evident in every song on this cd, it's such a relaxing and uplifting album and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I love the honesty in "Hold On" and "Don't Walk Away", the struggles he sings about are something I think a lot of Christians can relate to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear-cut and to the point... February 18, 2006
By Ben
Format:Audio CD
Shawn Mcdonald is one the most amazing artists that I have ever heard, personally. Not b/c he can rip a guitar like Hendrix or sing like an angel, but b/c he's down to earth. I saw him at Passion in January, and the guy came out on stage shaking and admitting he was nervous. Tell me, what major label artist does that? NONE. His lyrics are perfect for a young, christian generation struggling to find a foothold in the agnostic, anything goes attitude of our society, and I can not wait for his new CD which should be out very soon. I'm writing this to suggest that anyone who has not heard of him or heard his music, do so immediately. You won't regret it.
