Shawn Mullins, 2005

Shawn Mullins (born March 8, 1968 in Piedmont hospital, Atlanta, Georgia) is a songwriter instrumental, adult alternative , amplified accoustic guitarist and rock and roll performer.

Shawn's voice varies widely standing out along with his rythym acoustical, electric guitar strokes. Shawn travels with his sound man and tour manager, Big Kip Conner.


Mullins served as a US Army officer before dedicating himself to songwriting.

He was greatly influenced and inspired by rock singer-songwriters like James Taylor and country musicians such as Kris Kristofferson.

He attained fame when his song "Lullaby," from the album Soul's Core, became a radio and video hit. In the video for Lullaby, directed by Roger Pistole, actress Dominique Swain appeared. Another single, "Shimmer," was included on the soundtrack for the TV show Dawson's Creek and was a minor hit. He never matched the success of "Lullaby," however.

In early 2002, he formed the supergroup The Thorns with Matthew Sweet and Pete Droge.

He is known for playing many cover songs during his live performances, including "Copperhead Road" by Steve Earle.

He supported John Kerry during the 2004 Presidential Campaign, playing a benefit for him in Georgia along with former Senator Max Cleland and others.


Shawn Mullins has a new recording scheduled for early to mid 2006.
