In the Third Episode of the Duo Session series I invited Shawn Needham. Shawn Needham describes himself as a Progressive Jazz fusion guitarist. He started playing guitar at age 8 and continues to be a student of the instrument today and an insatiable music theorist. His past teachers include: Alan Hagar, Fred Fried, and the late Charlie Banacos.
Shawn is currently working on his third studio album which will be released on Rhombus records. He moved to Southern Indiana in 2003. Shawn can be seen playing in countless musical groups throughout the Evansville as well as many solo projects.
When he is not exploring the far outreaches of the musical realm, Shawn is a devoted husband and father to his young son, Dorian. He enjoys working on his classic Camaro, studying space exploration, and spending time with his family.
