Shawn Christie has been playing guitar for over twenty five years, and has been fortunate enough to share the stage with some of his heroes, such as Guthrie Govan (Asia, Dizzee Rascal, The Aristocrats) Bryan Beller (Dethklok, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani) Alex Skolnick (Testament, Trans Siberian Orchestra) and 10 time Grammy winners Take 6.
Over the years, Shawn has remained extremely active through recording, clinics and live performances. He has performed with numerous regional and national musicians such as drummer James Bradley Jr. (Chuck Mangione, Anita Baker, Jeffrey Osbourne, Crazytown). He also could be found holding down steady positions in two full production shows in Atlantic City: Legends in Concert and Royal Jelly. Between these two shows, Shawn performed a whopping 522 shows in one year!
Along with all those dates, he remains a dedicated instructor. Shawn has been an Artist in Residence/Clinician for New Jersey State Council for the Arts, and continues to educate students privately.
Elias Granillo, from the progressive rock site Sea of Tranquility writes: “Shawn Christie has no need to find himself pigeonholed, and won’t anytime soon, unless he doesn’t mind being compared to a chameleon, since he’s already gone from John Petrucci, to Tony MacAlpine, to Pat Metheny in roughly half of an album.”
Ever the “chameleon” of styles, Shawn was chosen as the winner of 92.5WXTU's unplugged contest in 2018, becoming the house musician for the station as well as performing alongside the likes of country superstars Dierks Bentley, Brothers Osbourne, Lanco and Morgan Whalen.
