Genre: Americana / Roots Rock / Singer/Songwriter

Alabama born and raised, now living just outside of D.C., Shane is a Singer/Songwriter/Keyboardist/Guitarist/Engineer/Producer with all the scars to prove it.

As "Mr Wilson", Wilson shared his label, Zane Records ( Reading, England) with Roots Rocking cohorts (and former Muscle Shoals contemporaries) Drive-By Truckers. On his Zane Records releases, Wilson was joined by Muscle Shoals master's David Hood, Spooner Oldham, Mickey Buckins, Scott Boyer, Kelvin Holly and others, including Amazing Rhythm Aces guitarist and former Brother Cane bassist, David Anderson. Produced by Shane's longtime friend and mentor, Allman Bros./Widespread Panic Producer Johnny Sandlin, the CD and EP were critical successes, chosen by Oxford University's webzine "Flying Shoes" as the "Album of the Year." "The London Times" simply dubbed Wilson as, "Enigmatic..."

Wilson focuses on his songwriting, churning out tune after tune in high energy performances in which he moves from acoustic to piano and back again.

Studio, live and writing credits include:

Greg Allman; “Idol” winner - Taylor Hicks; Sugarland; Widespread Panic; Buddy Miles; Butch McDade; Oteil Burbridge of The Allman Brothers and ARU; Derek Trucks; Bonnie Bramlett; Chuck Leavell; Jimmy Hall; The Drive-By Truckers; The Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section; The Memphis Horns; Dan Penn, Spooner Oldham and Donnie Fritz; Delbert McClinton; Mark Wills; Lenny LeBlanc (“Above All”); Jerry Joseph; Bloodkin; Spoonful James; Mr. Wilson; The Fiddleworms and Five O'Clock Charlie.

Shane is an Alabama Music Hall of Fame Achiever and a Carnegie Hero Medal Winner who's writing ability has long been labeled as “platinum.”

Wilson's “Town That Knows Everything” was labeled, “the best song Springsteen never wrote.”

And now... well, now is an ambiguous length of time in some arenas....
