Hello friends! The Reverend Shawn Amos & The Brotherhood dropped their new album, the organic masterpiece, Blue Sky back in April and it has topped the blues charts and garnered much deserved critical acclaim. The Brotherhood is an all-star band featuring Brady Blade on drums, Christopher Thomas on bass and Chris "Doctor" Roberts on guitar. You can find Blue Sky where ever you get your music. Go to for music, videos, essays and more. Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of sitting down and talking to The Reverend Shawn Amos. We have a great conversation about his unique upbringing in Hollywood (which is depicted in a brilliant piece he wrote for The Huffington Post), putting together The Brotherhood and making Blue Sky in Wimberley, TX, the recent essay about his experience being black in America available HERE, his musical journey from singer/songwriter to the blues and beyond and much more! I really enjoyed getting to know Shawn. I'm sure you will too. Let's get down!
Ciao! -JG
