You're Here & I'm a Mess
Don't let the young looks fool you - Shane is a seasoned professional, having supported himself full-time as a working musician since age 18. Ohio is home base, with Shane frequently working clubs between Cincinnati and Toledo, but Shane has also been spending a good deal of time lately in Nashville exploring co-write sessions with some of Music City's emerging talent. A prior working residency in San Diego continues to pay dividends, with Shane returning to Lestat's West on a semi-regular basis. Shane also keeps busy with college gigs, both within and outside of the NACA format. Established venues on Shane's resume include Lestat's in San Diego, The Ark in Ann Arbor, The House of Blues in Cleveland, and Rockwood's Music Hall in NYC, to list a few. He has shared bills with Patty Griffin, Minnie Driver and John Mayer, not to mention more pop-rock oriented acts such as Hanson and Hootie and The Blowfish. Media describes Shane Piasecki and his second album, 'All for Coffee' as a combination of 'great lyrics, tremendous melodies, and gifted vocals' (Mike McIntyre, WXKR 94.5FM); Others say that it has a 'first-rate collection of songs, top-notch production values, and a consistent sense of purpose' (Rod Lockwood, Toledo Blade.) Or, as the Toledo City Paper summed up, 'Keep an eye on this lad.' 'All for Coffee,' reached number one on the Detroit Music Retail Collective chart, and peaked at number 19 on the national Alliance of Independent Media Stores sales chart. Combining that success with gig sales, sales on iTunes and CDbaby.com, Shane has moved over 10,000 units. 'You're Here and I'm a Mess' shows Shane displaying a slightly harder edge and a full electric guitar rock and roll band sound, thanks to Detroit producer Nolan Rossi. Shane is currently working with attorney/manager Larry Meyer, who also represents Chicago's eclectic roots and soul collective, JT & the Clouds.
