     Shawn Wright sings lead vocals and plays guitar. Shawn was born in Loveland, Colorado July 30, 1976, son of Betty Wright and Jim Lindenmuth. His father Jim, being a Bluegrass musician, had a major influence on Shawn's style. Shawn started playing the guitar at the age of 16 and was gigging by the tender age of 18. Over the next few years he would perform all over the state of Colorado and Wyoming with his band, Switchback. The band gathered an extensive fan base, had their performances broadcast on radio, and received critical acclaim. Shawn wrote most of the groups' material and when the band broke up in 2000, he carried the songs with him.

     Shawn has hooked up with the Colorado harmonica legend known only as the Mad Dog. Renown for his raucous leads, funky rhythms, and raw and soulful blues, Mad Dog continues to expand his stylistic repertoire to match Shawn’s expansive song writing talents and their common love for diverse musical styles. Together the duo, Mr. Wright and the Dog, are developing a loyal following that enjoy their unique blend of “lectro-coustic” stylings that run the gamut from metal to bluegrass to ass kicking blues.

     A live version of Shawn's "Something Better Than This" is included on the the Live at The Depot CD.
