Get down here for the Shawn Carle experience...
From the start, Shawn Carle's musical career was destined to unfold like a troubadours tale; No meteoric rise, no airport arrests, no headlines, yet no less legendary. Carles journey into the hearts of those who love his music began in the early eighties.
The obligatory high school talent shows, house party beer bands and UI adventures hallmarked the young Lynn Valley writer's youth. Carle fought hard for chances to showcase himself in an effort to not only master the art of writing a great song, but also refine a natural talent to entertain.
Out of high school, and attending Langara College as an aspiring actor, Carle battled for a breath as the tides of simple survival swirled in. Unhappy and full of youthful stupidity, Shawn dropped out of school and soon floundered. Following in the footsteps of local heroes and influences like Geoff Gibbons And Silverlode, Carle began the first of several love/hate relationships with the fabled North Shores Lonsdale Avenue . Playing rooms like The San Francisco Pizza Department, The Vault and North side Jonnys he began to cement a following of peers. Equally displaced and in need of a good time, the crowd was faithful and fitful. Just as things moved dangerously close to something more than just a great time, The Lower Lonsdale scene collapsed.
