What's New

11 songs creating 11 portraits of people and places from Shaw’s life…

1980s London, New York, loving and losing, basement bars, poets, friendships, lovers, near-escapes and far-away places…

…paying homage to friends and icons, and musing on our place in a complicated world

These new songs draw inspiration from Shaw’s early musical and lyrical influences Bowie, Steely Dan, Al Jarreau, early Elton John, Billy Joel, plus a new take on a song from one of his musical idols, Rickie Lee Jones.

Soulful, funky, bold, and with Shaw’s typical poetic frankness.
