Shane Dwight

Years Performed: 2018

Native Californian Shane Dwight relocated to Nashville in 2009 to further advance his musical career. Within six months of arriving on the scene he swiftly attained a solid reputation as a “guitar slinger” in his newly adopted hometown. Not one to completely abandon his roots, Dwight still chooses to divide his time between Nashville and his childhood ranch in Morgan Hill, California.

Performing more than 200 shows per year worldwide, Dwight has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in music, including B.B. King, Etta James, Jimmie Vaughan, Taj Mahal, the Doobie Brothers, Los Lobos, Los Lonely Boys and Johnny Winter. Additionally, Dwight has performed at numerous prestigious music festivals and events around the world, counting among them the Portland Waterfront Blues Festival, Beale Street Music Festival, Ottawa Bluesfest, Bayfront Blues Festival, Bethlehem Musikfest, the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise, as well as the Monterey Blues Festival where he was crowned winner of the “Battle of the Bands.”

With eight CDs and two live DVDs under his belt, Dwight’s music has been played on hundreds of ratio stations in over 40 different countries, earning him considerable praise and accolades along the way. In 2011, Dwight’s song, “True Love’s Gone” from his album A Hundred White Lies was selected by USA Today writer Jerry Shriver for his “Pick of the Week” column and the album charted on the Top 10 best-selling blues CD list on Amazon.com. The album also hit #3 on Sirius XM Satellite Radio’s Bluesville chart, debuted at #9 on the Living Blues Radio Chart, and was on the Top 40 Roots Music radio chart listings for over six months. A Hundred White Lies also peaked at #9 on the Route 66 Americana music chart and remained on its Top 40 for four straight months.

Building on the foundation set forth by his previous critically-acclaimed release, A Hundred White Lies, singer, songwriter, and guitarist Shane Dwight once again calls upon the expertise of Grammy Award-winning producer Kevin McKendree for his Eclecto Groove Records debut. This House finds Dwight retaining his blues-based roots, while also allowing for the influences of his current Nashville surroundings to seep into his music. Dwight is joined by special guest vocalist and co-writer Bekka Bramlett on two songs, along with a cast of Nashville’s finest, including rhythm guitarist Doug Lancio and drummer Kenneth Blevins (John Hiatt), as well as bassist Steve Mackey and drummer Lynn Williams (Delbert McClinton Band, Dick 50).
