Surviving the Music Industry

Jun 16, 2020

A memoir in the Huffingpost titled, "Cookies and Milk," set's the prologue to this conversation with activist, bluesman Reverend Shawn Amos. Growing up in Hollywood in the '70s, post-civil rights movement, and the age of sexual freedom. Shawn takes us through what childhood was like in the home of Wally Amos, founder of Famous Amos, and a mother that suffered from schizoaffective disorder. Then placing anger, rage, angst, and even courage to transfer into his music. Shawn Amos recognizes that these are challenging times where we can take one step forward and another back in light of the murder of George Floyd. Recognizing Shawn's music makes a statement that stands the test of time but self-admittingly is pursuing something bigger than himself, while not BS'ing himself. Blue Sky, the latest record, is out now.
