As a boy who grew up in Port Elizabeth, Shane sang in the church choir where he was classically trained, but didn’t take music seriously until he was in his early 20’s. He explains, “I started writing songs and making beats , and it took my interest in music to another level. I started playing piano and guitar and writing songs to broaden my horizons even more.”
Recording on his computer and playing the songs for his friends, Shane saw their genuinely excited reaction. “I started out with a cheap microphone and did not know a thing about recording. I did some research on the internet and educated myself.” Now recording in earnest, Shane was gathering skill as a songwriter, singer, rapper, instrumentalist, composer and producer of almost every genre of music.
