For Shane Jackman, music and life are inseparable – and he has an insatiable passion for both. His music has been called “Sophisticoustic,” referring to what Acoustic Guitar Magazine called, his unique “sagebrush sound.”
Growing up in Salt Lake City, the second of nine children, Shane spent cool summer nights outside his window on the roof, playing guitar to the sound of the creek behind his house. After majoring in fine arts at Southern Utah University he, packed his VW bus, and drove to Massachusetts where he tended polo horses and lived in a hay loft to make ends meet while getting his start in front of the discriminating East Coast coffeehouse crowds. Before long, Shane’s reputation as an insightful songwriter and engaging performer earned him gigs with artists like Michael Martin Murphy, Peter Paul and Mary, Shawn Colvin, Marty Stewart, Trisha Yearwood, the Mavericks, Pete Seeger and Howard Jones.
