Breaks It Down


The Reverend Shawn Amos is a Los Angeles-based, chart-topping bluesman ready to turn any venue into a 1960s' Chicago blues club. His foot-stomping, harp-wailing performances, like tent revivals of yore, energize the faithful, and convert the wayward to the Rev's message of booty-shakin', deeply joyful blues. The Rev came up in 1970s Los Angeles, at the feet of musical legends like Marvin Gaye and Quincy Jones, as well as all manner of Hollywood street folk.

The son of music agent-turned entrepreneur, Wally "Famous" Amos, and R&B nightclub singer, Shirlee May, Shawn found music early, and has worked within it his entire adult life. His rich career as a producer includes overseeing new music and retrospectives from R&B blues legends Solomon Burke, John Lee Hooker, and Johnny "Guitar" Watson, and scores of other legacy acts.

"What a tight and exhilarating show, fantastic!" -Blues Magazine

"The Reverend Shawn Amos, a showman not to be missed!" -The Blues Alone "The blues is about the truth and Mr. Amos is always in search of it" -Steve Jordan
