Hi Shahn Donovan! How are you?
I’m really good, I feel centered, focused and grateful.
Where are you from?
What is your greatest inspiration for your music?
From others, I love a great storyteller and a gorgeous tone, for me it’s been my struggle through life and the ability to share it with others and connect with other people through my music.
What are 3 words that describe your music?
Emotional, real, raw.
What is the hardest subject you’ve ever written about?
So far, it’s been my song heavy, I wrote it about the time I was 20 and almost succeeded in a suicide attempt to end up waking up in a hospital and what it was like being in such a dark place.
What are the challenges of being an artist?
For me, it’s working through the mentality that nothing is ever good enough and never being satisfied with my work or my voice, dealing with the pressure of body image and reminding myself that I am enough always and my value is not related to the way I look.
Are you planning on releasing new music soon?
Yes, early 2021.
