Shawn Mrazek Lives! is the adopted moniker for veteran Canadian musician Shawn Mrazek’s foray away from the drum kit and into the limelight as a singer-songwriter.
Coming across like a slightly surly, younger sibling of Lou Reed, or a even more earnest Jonathan Richman, he tells tales of self-discovery, freedom and exodus that snap, snarl and sparkle in equal measure on debut studio album Thought He Was Dead.
It is a punk-tinged indie rock collection that is out on May 28th, you can download album opener, the sub-two minutes of Man In The Grass below – just ignore the incorrect Soundcloud title!)Follow @madmackerel
