Shawn Mullins biography (bio):
He is probably best known for the 1998 single, "Lullaby," which hit number one on the Adult Top 40.
Mullins cultivated an interest in music beginning in his days at Clarkston High School in Decatur, Georgia (where he made the acquaintance of friend and mentor Amy Ray of the Indigo Girls). Later, he honed his craft in his college days at North Georgia College and State University as a solo acoustic musician and bandmaster of the military marching band. Soon, he added a drummer and bassist to form the power pop trio billed as "Shawn Eric Mullins with Twice Removed", a combo that would help carry him to campuswide and regional notoriety. Eventually the "Twice Removed" trio parted ways under amicable terms, and Mullins began using a variety of collaborative lineups while building his reputation as a solo artist.
His critical breakthrough came 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. To date, he has yet to match the overwhelming commercial success of "Lullaby," which was also released as a live performance on the charity album Live in the X Lounge II in 1999. In early 2002, he formed the supergroup The Thorns with Matthew Sweet and Pete Droge.
He supported John Kerry during the 2004 Presidential Campaign, playing a benefit for him in Georgia along with former Senator Max Cleland and others.
In 2006, Shawn put out a new single, entitled "Beautiful Wreck", from the album 9th Ward Pickin Parlor. The single enjoyed modest success, and was featured in the popular Cities 97 Cities Sampler, Volume 18.
