L.A. Artist Tolan Shaw will be performing with some of the best musicians in Brighton at The Mesmerist as a part of his UK and European tour. Local artists Jamie Mathias and Liemba will be warming the evening up with some of their best known songs.
Tolan Shaw is an award-winning artist who has risen in the Southern California music scene as a pop/soul singer-songwriter who will stop at nothing to build a career with his original music. Both a solo acoustic troubadour and the frontman of his own band, Shaw’s music is catchy and soulful, bluesy and melodic, poppy and sincere. It is also highly inspired by his yearn to travel and to learn about the world and its people.
In the last year, Shaw won "Best Singer-Songwriter" at the 2017 San Diego Music Awards, became a Taylor Guitars official artist, wrote music with Jason Mraz, and took a 4 month journey to Southeast Asia (endorsed by Taylor and GoPro) to write music and create a travel-music video series called “Wandersong.” Having shared the stage with international acts such as Gavin Degraw, Nate Ruess, and Switchfoot, toured nationally and internationally (Canada, Mexico), and achieved success placing and licensing songs with various TV networks and music libraries, Shaw is well positioned to become a career artist and a songwriter.
The rest of 2017 will bring new music and touring, inspiring a broader audience with his craft, and giving back to his community.
