The Story

Shea Birney is a 28 year old Florida native who has been playing and crafting songs for over a decade, moving to St. Augustine in 2011.

Shea's true style lies in the passion put into the songs and performances.  From intimate serenades of love or longing, to raucous ballads of existential crises or resolution, the songs always have a sense of having some idea or emotion he sincerely wants to convey.  With a human quality that cannot be ignored, the songs stand on their own merit; and could seem to come from any mouth any where, during their most trying or serene moments in life.

His debut album "The Curtain is Drawn" was released in May of 2016.
