The Reverend Shawn Amos (from the album. Loves You) - The Reverend Shawn Amos Loves Youwas recorded in Shreveport, Louisiana, produced by saxophone siren, Mindi Abair. Shawn Amos packs Loves You full of Soul born in the Blues. He sings a love note, of sorts, to his Los Angeles hometown as he cruises down the Sunset Strip with “Hollywood Blues” as Memphis Minnie’s tale of being “Joliet Bound” rises up over wandering electric guitar riffs that run through the track like hounds were nipping at its notes. The Reverend Shawn Amos opens on a gospel march as “Days of Depression” finds a path urged on by a snarling guitar, tambourine shakes, handclaps and vocals from the Blind Boys of Alabama.
Despite the easy flow of Loves You, and the way that The Reverend fits into his Blues, Shawn Amos is a mega-busy man. A songwriter, and Blues artist, he adds to his resume with production credits (Quincy Jones, Solomon Burke) and is a digital marketing entrepreneur. The Reverend Shawn Amos Loves You lays down a hard Rhythm and Blues to introduce “Brand New Man”, shakes and rattles along the road as it reminds “You're Gonna Miss Me (When I Get Home)”, tenderly shuts the lights on love with “The Last Day I'm Loving You”, and invites Missy Anderson to the microphone to share vocals and “Boogie”. The Reverend Shawn Amos and producer Mindi Abair join together for a good time night out on Loves You as they roll down the windows to let an easy breeze blow the pair into Jimmy Reed’s “Bright Lights, Big City”.
