Second Stage

Doors Open: 6:30pm


Shawn R.W Nelson
Shawn R.W Nelson is a poet, songwriter born in St. Louis who has been residing in Los Angeles for the past 18 years.

Shawn grew up on the road, traveling through 40 out of the fifty states in America, mining for stones with the radio on – music was his passion and solace and he found it there. As a mighty force in his life on the road, he began writing songs when he was ten.

Shawn’s suitcase, backseat traveling, rest stop sleeping upbringing shows in his passion of story-telling and in his way of looking at life
treasuring every moment and friendship in his journey.

Shawn’s debut EP MAMA cuts deep and raw, leaving a haunting look at abuse in America. His follow up EP Duet “Honey Is It Alright”

Featuring Sarah Christine gives a feel of the tension between love and happiness and the wanting of a simpler life.

Shawn has been described as a cross between Woody Guthrie,Joni Mitchell and Kurt Cobain. His unique sound is heavily rooted in folk, blues and classic rock’n’roll.

Throughout the course of his musical career he has won over the hearts of music lovers from all walks of life and continues to collaborate with some of his favorite musicians and loves taking the stage with fellow artists at any given time when the invitation or spontaneity arises.

Stay tuned for all other upcoming announcements and collaborations.


Sarah Christine
Colorado based up and coming singer-songwriter with proud Minneapolis roots, Sarah Christine draws influence from pop, indie, folk and electronic sounds to create a unique blend of original compositions. 

With a strong passion for writing, composing, and producing, Sarah creates music you’ll find yourself playing on repeat and adding to your playlists. Her voice and tone are one of a kind and are undeniably rare!  Propelled by an innate desire to base her entire musical adventure and journey on the sole theme of “In It Together”, it is the humble sense of coming together to follow dreams as a community alongside extremely hard work that will help us all achieve our goals. 

Sarah’s core story brings light into many stories and circumstances she’s overcame in her life that demonstrate strength, perseverance and bravery encouraging being bold and letting go which is intensified through so many of her lyrics.  Overcoming being hit by a  Ford F-150 truck while walking across a crosswalk, being one situation Sarah overcame just recently.  A life changing moment. 

Sarah was recently acknowledged by two decorated Grammy winners on The Music Boost Podcast as one of the most anticipated up and coming singer-songwriters of 2021. 

“Every vision/dream starts with a decision to go for it and give everything you have!  We are in the hustle of this musical journey together!  I can’t thank you enough for all you are to my projects, lyrics, live performances, and everything that goes into making my music come alive.  This is our adventure together.  It takes a community, an army, and I’m so thankful you are in my corner with me. I am tremendously proud to be in yours!  You are my lyrics – thank you – and it is a pleasure writing with and for you!  Here’s to making dreams come true and always living on purpose, together!”
