"Sunshine" - Shawn Mathews |Review

These days we all need a little bit of sunshine in our lives. No more dark clouds. "Sunshine" by Shawn Mathews might just be the song to clear out those stay at home blues.

"Sunshine" is an upbeat song about better, happier, and sunnier days after gloomy days. Sometimes sunshine can be a person, sometimes a mindset, sometimes a thing that just makes you feel lighter. These days it is very easy to just stay inside and forget the outside world exists...get that sunshine! It has been my life philosophy to be less of a cloud and embrace the sunnier things in life lately. So, join me, get up and just embrace the light for 2:52 and show Mathews some love!

Featured on Lyrical Lemonade, Shawn Mathews is a multi-talented musician who is able to blend elements from various genres into his distinctive mix of Pop and R&B. Using guitar, drums, and sometimes popular synth melodies, Shawn adds a smooth vocal/lyrical performance to his songs which resemble the R&B styling of his influences Bazzi, Khalid, Dominic Fike, and Drake. This young Pennsylvania based artist has an extremely relevant feel to his songs and makes music that listeners can identify with.

Shawn was signed to his college label VALE Records in 2020 and released his EP Blue with them. His debut EP Blue features six singles ‘Down Bad’, ‘Don’t Say Hi To Me’, ‘Erase It’, ‘Higher’, ‘Saved Me’, and ‘Hold Me Down’ in addition to two versatile singles Bored, a classic Hyerpop track about being stuck inside during these difficult times waiting for things to change and there superhit Wanna Be which is a favorite with listeners of all ages.

Being a dancer and actor, Shawn fuses his love for dance and American Pop music to create his own unique brand of music with a unique style that is his own and aims to create music without genre constraints.

His love for performing and music equates to his electric stage presence when performing live. When he is not making music, Shawn is acting in regional musical theater productions or teaching his students hip-hop moves to the latest hits. Shawn also loves rapping to the tracks from Lin-Manuel's Miranda's superhit musicals "Hamilton" and "In The Heights" and can do a smooth moonwalk in addition to hard hitting hip hop moves.
