Shawn Mullins Follows His Heart

The singer/songwriter releases 'My Stupid Heart,' his first album in five years

Though some may only recognize Shawn Mullins as the voice behind the 90s hit “Lullaby,” others know him as a multi-talented singer/songwriter who has recorded 13 albums and played countless clubs and coffeehouses over the past two decades plus. His 14th album and first in five years, My Stupid Heart – released in October 2015 on Rounder/Sugar Hill – finds the Atlantan once again integrating his pop sensibilities with folk, gospel, blues and New Orleans jazz. In his signature, rich baritone, Mullins candidly sings of love and loss (having just endured a third divorce), powerfully weighs in on social issues (“Ferguson”) and even finds a little to laugh about in the “Pre-Apocalyptic Blucs.” No Depression’s review is a great read for a longtime fan or someone looking to discover a great artist with a treasure-trove of songs:
