His stories come from an obviously deep and personal space, delivered with brutal honesty, Shane carries a special ability to connect as a human with those who take the time to let his words in. There’s no doubt that many share experiences similar to those Shane so personally shares. Tune in to hear more about his formative years and some of the deeper stories behind some of his pieces.
