My name is Shane. I began classical piano training at age 4. By age 14, I won a National Talent Competition, cut a record with Capital Records and was given a monetary music scholarship from the Julliard School of Music in New York.
I honed my talents in the AGAC American Guild of Actors and Composers in New York, of which I am very grateful; and continued writing music, performed in off-Broadway productions, sang in various clubs, and recorded with top producers at Philadelphia Int'l Records. However, the money I received in the music business was not enough to pay a mortgage, bills & music career expenses. I switched careers and worked as a Sr. Corrections Officer. On my days off, I entertained patients in hospitals & nursing homes. I retired from State Law Enforcement and picked up where I left off with my music; a gift from God.
I attended La Salle University and Camden County College. My studies included Industrial Relations, Contract Compliance, Psychology & Law. I earned highest honors, Golden Key Phi Theta Kappa and PSI Beta. With extensive training, experience and background in Government, Law Enforcement and Counseling, I was called to an Urgent Response in New York on 9/11 and worked 4 long grueling months as Team Leader/Foot Soldier/Assistant Commander of C.I.S.M.'s International Critical Incident Stress Management team. At the close of this long task, I was numb. While recovering from the traumas, my music saved my own life and gave me a purpose to live. My spirit returned. My mind and heart finally connected and I began recording songs again.
Today I'm a proud Voting Member with the Grammy Association with NARAS (National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences, Inc. My inspirational songs have touched hearts, lifted spirits, given people hope and won prestigious Music and Global Peace Awards.
I am thankful to God, my Heavenly Father for my talents, my family, friends, supporters and my team of great Award-Winning Producers and Artists. Most important is the fact that my Gifted Music and message to "Love and Help One Another' has been heard and has been spreading around the world. And in that, I am humbled and thankful as I thank my Heavenly Father and Jesus for showing us the way to be fruitful and multiply with a conscience and respectful love of all life.
Thank you for your time. Please help make it a better world for all of us.
