About Shane Mann

Morwell, Australia

I think it was Richard Marx who said "Songwriting is a bit like breathing, it's just something that you do" this couldn't be more true. I don't know why but it's something I just have to do. There's no tap that can be turned on or off, there's no time, place or way I write. It just happens, and I adapt to whatever is needed to get my song out there. Am I a good somgwriter? I supose that's up to you the listerner, so far no one has told me I'm crap. I'm not sure it matters, I have a lot of fun writing & recording. If I'm honest I'd have to say there's a lot more failures than successes but each project is a learning experience that can be applied in the future. In a world that seems to be heading in the wrong direction most of the time, I hope that I am but small light shinmning to those that realise life is about living & love, not how much stuff I've got. Music is the futureand it doesn't matter if you play or listen, that your a seasoned pro or a bedroom basher, the point is to embrace it. I hope my songs can convey something that just words alone can't . All of the songs here have been recorded ona Zoom MRS1608 digital recorder. Primarily a guitarist I started writing songs when I was 14. It keeps me sane and well adjusted. I am just a songwriter that loves what he does. I make no claims to be exceptionally talented or gifted, but I find great satisfaction in the creative process. If you like what you hear please let me know, If you don't like what you hear that's ok to.
