Shawn Thomas is an "out and affirming" contemporary Christian performer and recording artist, who grew up as the son of a preacher in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). After a decade of pursuing his talents in many directions including songwriting, producing, musical theater, dance and choreography, choral direction, and voice instruction, Shawn followed the encouragement of others and incorporated his faith into his music. In 2003 Shawn released his first "spiritual" project, "Everything I Am”, and began a completely unplanned journey into music ministry, introducing him to a way of worship through music he previously thought impossible. "I was afraid to sing religious music, because I didn''t think I would be allowed to do the kind of music that I enjoy. I grew up being exposed only to traditional hymns and classically based music in church, so I didn''t think of contemporary music as something that could be used in worship and praise." Shawn visits churches, groups, and events sharing the Grace message of God’s Love, through concerts, workshops, and spoken message.
Shawn Thomas is a two time “Pride in the Arts Awards”(https://www.tradebit.com) recipient and seven time nominee. His 2003 CD/album, “Everything I Am” spun two number one singles and the album remained on the Top 20 for over 12 months on Pride Christian Music.

"So wonderful. Nothing like hearing an experienced artist using his craft… and finding the grace and caring to share (his) inner life with us who are seemingly so far outside of it."

"I''ve watched the music of Shawn Thomas evolve over the years, and I''ve seen it grow not only in its artistry but in the richness of his message. It sounds like he''s speaking with his heart, and of course with that connection he will reach more people lucky enough to hear him."

"From beginning to end "Worship & Desperation" is preciously spiritual--perfectly mastered for Christian enjoyment with a beautiful blend of vocal sounds and congregational participation."
Arizzona, "Unashamed Faith Café" (https://www.tradebit.com)
The honest and very heartfelt lyrics (of "Faith Unashamed") show that Shawn has opened a door into his heart and life. It doesn''t matter what Christian denomination you belong to; Shawn Thomas brings music that will bring you to your feet and then take you to your knees!"
