Raised in Amish Country, Pennsylvania, this powerful young soul has entertained countless audiences across the nation. Whether playing at festivals or small town coffee shops he has managed to captivate listeners with an eclectic variety of classic folk covers and solid soulful originals. Bushwhacking his musical career from Hawaii to Key West, he settled in Charleston, SC to pursue a band jointly formed with Folk/Americana artist Laura Ann Thurston. With the success of Hick Child Soup these two light hearted musicians perform across the eastern seaboard and continue to intrigue fans of all ages. With the passing of time, Shawn Hagan has now settled in Asheville, NC to embark on his first solo project, The Family Portraits.
