Culture Shock: Shawn Hewitt & National Strike
"He's different," the rep said. "But good different," he quickly added.
Checking out Culture Shock festival last night, I see where he's coming from. Despite a modest stage (Harbourfront Centre really needs to upgrade the Toronto Star stage) a modest crowd (which was a damn shame) and slightly chilly weather (which probably explains the crowd), Shawn Hewitt & National Strike bravely performed cuts off the recently released The Soft Society EP.
If I had to (and I don't mind you) describe the sound, I'd say the humble Toronto-based vocalist is an eclectic mix of rock, neo-soul, jazz and a whole lotta gumption.
He's good different.
