Shawn SixX is a self-proclaimed old school music fan first and foremost! It seems that ideal though has been lost in translation more often than not in today’s world of music journalism. Thankfully Shawn is making it his mission to report about the “feeling” of music more than your typical wiki-page bullet point run down. Imagine a long haired and tattooed Edgar Allen Poe meets Hunter S. Thompson and you should get it!
Shawn got his start in the music industry as a radio producer and production assistant for the legendary WBCN 104.1 and 98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston and currently is a producer for CBS Radio Boston’s WZLX 100.7, WBMX 104.1, and AMP 103.3. He is also the creator and host of the nationally known “SixX Strings” music podcast/column featured on CBS Radio’s WZLX and WZLX.COM. Shawn’s work has been featured in UltimateClassicRock.com, TEAMROCK.COM, and BLABBERMOUTH.COM. He has also been a contributing editorial columnist with AMP Magazine, Hails and Horns Magazine, New Noise Magazine, and held the nightlife and entertainment blogger duties for CBSBOSTON.COM. Even though he covers festivals and music events all over the country, Shawn currently resides and is based out of Massachusetts.
