Shane Stevens is a successful multi-genre singer-songwriter. Born in Myrtle Beach, SC, he’s now living the big-city life, splitting time between the music hubs of Nashville, New York, and L.A.
Signed for the last six years with Major Bob Music Publishing, he has penned hits for and with Pop, Country, and Christian artists, including cross-over superstars Lady Antebellum, country stars Sara Evans and Montgomery Gentry, and American Idols including Jordin Sparks, Kellie Pickler, Katherine McPhee, and Danny Gokey. Stevens also enjoys working with newer acts, penning songs for artists such as Cody Simpson, Mallary Hope, and Gloriana, and he’s currently on radio with the debut single “Beautiful Thing” for Curb/Warner Record’s new Pop/R&B artist, Lil’ Larry.
Shane celebrated his first multi-week number one hit in 2010, with the song “American Honey” recorded by Lady Antebellum, which he co-wrote with his good friends Hillary Lindsey and Cary Barlowe.
As an artist, Stevens’ music is stylistically reminiscent of George Michael, Train, and Maroon 5, and he has just finished recording his first Pop/Hot AC EP entitled “Holy Graffiti,” which slated for release in January 2012. All of the material on the 7 song set was written by Stevens and the first single “Back To Earth” will be released to iTunes and Amazon on 11-11-11. He shot a music video for “Back To Earth” in NYC, which will be released in December 2011.
Deeply devoted to supporting charitable causes, Stevens is currently involved with the non-profit organization Unlikely Heroes, whose mission is to create restoration homes and rehabilitation centers for children who have been rescued after being sold for sex, both in the United States and internationally. Stevens will be hosting a benefit for the Unlikely Heroes in NYC on November 16, 2011.
Shane will be co-starring in a docu-reality show entitled Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys, with his friend and co-writer Sherrie Austin. The show, produced by World Of Wonder was filmed in Nashville, TN, and is currently in post production. The first two episodes will air back to back on November 18th, 2011 on the Sundance Channel.
