Shawn Wilcox Band at Movie & Music In The Country

Guitarist, composer, arranger, producer and creative force for re-inventing Hillbilly Music. Credits include the original trailer for Quentin Tarantino's film "From Dusk 'Till Dawn", as well as music for ABC Productions, The Addams Family, Jacks Place and Baywatch, etc. It's Shawn's vision to push the evolution of old time music to a new form with advanced chord structures, complex counterpoint and driving rhythms. Shawn is a multiple ADDY Award recipient having had a successful career with Cox Enterprise/The Atlanta Journal and Constitution, serving as composer, producer, engineer and playing multiple instruments on many commercials for high profile clients such as Rich's/Macys. Shawn has received three Gold and two Silver International ITVA Awards in addition to the Six Addy Awards and is to this day, a well respected member of that elite, tho small circle and remains close to many of his former constituents still today. Seeking new challenges, he and Nick Jameson, a former member of "Foghat" turned voice actor, relocated to Hollywood. Shawn longed for the hills. Being born and raised in upper East Tennessee in the shadow of the Appalachian Mountains is a feeling one never looses. After many years in Hollywood, he returned east, eventually settling in Athens, Ga. where the birth of this project took place. The rest is history yet to be written!
