"After years of playing, recording and wandering Eastern Europe, a veteran of BBC sessions and live stages from the Royal Festival Hall, the main stage at Clockenflap, Hong Kong, to jazz bars in New York and London, Shamus has developed an obsession with obscure and forgotten songs. He has been twisting Jazz standards with hip-hop beats and dub bass lines for over 15 years now. Utilising top session musicians and producers from around the world, his covers versions are always unique and fresh. Torch songs of lost love are his forte, but he has been known to spread his wings a bit wider by also covering Joy Division, Elvis Costello and other post punk luminaries. Whatever he does, he does it with originality and class.

  A true musical maverick who you really should check out." Douglas McAuley - Rubber Taxi Records
