Joined March 1, 2018

Shawn plays drums and trumpet for the Denver band Devotchka and has composed and produced music for various documentary films. DeVotchka's music has appeared in numerous international productions- largely due to their success with the score of 2006’s LittleMiss Sunshine. In 2015 Shawn partnered with Ozomatli singer Raul Pacheco to produce Los Dreamers; a bilingual concept album about immigration. Denver arts patrons also witnessed DeVotchka’s award-winning collaboration with the Denver Center for Performing Arts in the sold-out run of Sweeney Todd. Shawn followed that up, drumming ferociously for the 2018 production of The Who's Tommy. He lives in North Denver with his wife and two boys.
