Shawn Mullins with Brenda Xu at The Firefly Lounge
After a series of indie record releases, Shawn Mullins critical breakthrough came when 1998 Souls Core album shot him to fame on the strength of its Grammy-nominated No. 1 hit, Lullaby followed by AAA/Americana No. 1 Beautiful Wreck from 2006s 9th Ward Pickin Parlor. His song, Shimmer was used in promotion of the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney and was included on the Dawsons Creek soundtrack. He co-wrote All in My Head which was featured in episode one of the hit TV sitcom Scrubs. Mullins also co-wrote the Zac Brown Bands No. 1 country tune Toes. In early 2002, he formed super group The Thorns with Matthew Sweet and Peter Droge. Mullins most recent album My Stupid Heart was released in 2015, the theme of which, Mullins says, can be summed up most succinctly by the song title, It All Comes Down To Love, the guiding force behind just about every song on the album.
For the 20th anniversary of Souls Core, Shawn is revisiting the music by recording two new versions of the
album. He is calling this Souls Core Revival. This is not a remix or a remaster of the original, but rather brand
new recordings with new arrangements of the songs one album will be new stripped down solo performances, some on guitar, some on piano and maybe one a cappella and the second will be a new studio recording with his full band, Soul Carnival.
