Shawn D. Stoddard is making his presence known in the music scene with the release of songs from his debut album “Further Down That Road.” He is self described as country, grunge, alternative, and hard rock.
A drummer from 8 years old until picking up the guitar at 16, the lefty stickman kept working on his right-handed string work and turned to full-time axeman at 21. Over the next several years he played either solo or with a band on a rock journey that took him into venues in and around his native Massena, NY to New Hampshire, Rochester, Syracuse, Maine, Vermont and more. Unlike a lot of musicians, he actually jumped into battle of the band competitions and anything that pushed him to improve his skills. He also went on to learn bass and keys as he further enhanced his skillset and writing abilities.
Stoddard is entered in Guitar Center’s Singer Songwriter III with Don Was and needs fans to vote, view, and share his music in order for him to have a shot to be one of the 10 finalists in this contest.
