About Me:
Shawn H. has been playing the drums since the age of eight. By the time he was thirteen years old, Shawn had already begun making record dates, performing in nightclubs in his native Wilmington, DE, and touring the East Coast. Soon thereafter, Shawn began touring and recording with various members of George Clinton's P-Funk All-Stars, sharing the stage with the likes of Maceo Parker, Bernie Woorell & The Woo Warriors, and Paliament/Funkadelic. After recording an album ("In Memory Of"- released internationally to great acclaim on Triple Crown Records, 2001) and touring the U.S. and Europe vigorously with rock group Comin' Correct, Shawn moved to New York City, where he currently resides. Shawn, a long-time regular in the NYC music scene by now, has in recent years toured the world with artists the likes of boogaloo legend Melvin Sparks and jazz icon Pat Martino, worked as a bandleader (with world-renowned artists such as Lonnie Plaxico, George Colligan, Helen Sung, and Jon Irabagon as band members), and has recorded with artists such as Reuben Wilson (album "Movin On", featuring Shawn on drums ranked #3 on international jazz album charts- Savant, 2006), Grant Green, Jr., Wilbur Bascomb, and Nicki Richards (featuring Tower of Power, along with drum legends Dennis Chambers and Lenny White sharing percussion credits with Shawn). A life-long devotee to and listener of all musics great, Shawn H. can be heard performing straight-ahead jazz, Latin, and funk as easily as he can be heard performing hip-hop, rock, and fusion.

Along with his touring and recording work, Shawn H. is as well a much sought after drum instructor, with students of all ages and levels of playing experiences amongst his roster.

Shawn H. endorses: Sabian Cymbal Makers, Vic Firth Drumsticks & Mallets, and Evan Drumheads
