About: Shawn Pittman grew up with music all around him. His grandmother loved to play the boogie-woogie piano at family gatherings. Shawn’s mother must have seen something in him before he discovered what would be his life’s passion, his mother signed him up to take piano lessons at a young age. It wasn’t long until young Shawn was sneaking into his older brother’s room to play on his drum kit. By age fourteen, Shawn had a guitar in his hands. His discovery of Lightin Hopkins and Muddy Waters set the stage for Shawn’s musical journey.
He was born into his native roots of the Choctaw nation in Talihina, Oklahoma. Pittman later found his musical roots in Texas Blues when he moved to the state at the age of seventeen to attend the Booker T. Washington High School of the Performing Arts in Dallas. He expanded his music education courtesy of his uncle who would take him to local jams around town. This is how Shawn first met and learned from musicians like Hashbrown, Sam Myers, Mike Morgan, Jim Suhler, Tutu Jones, and many others.
Pittman recorded his first album in 1996. That album, Burnin’ Up, was released on Cannonball Records the following year. Throughout his career, Shawn has released 15 albums of original songs and a few covers featuring some of his favorite influences. As a songwriter and performer, Shawn is constantly composing and releasing new material.
