Shawn Starski

Jason Ricci guitarist

Shawn Starksi got started playing guitar over 15 years ago in the band at his church, and from there he joined his high school jazz band. Shawn then played locally in South Florida before joining up with Jason Ricci and New Blood.

The band tours heavily, averaging over 300 shows a year. Their albums have met with critical acclaim, with their album "Rocket Number 9" for Eclecto Groove Records spending a total of seven weeks on the Billboard Blues Charts hitting a peak position of #4. The album "unwittingly turned the blues world on their respective ear with a visionary and sonically bombastic recording that created legions of new fans," according to Delta Groove Productions, with Shawn's guitar work earning him a spot on Guitar Player Magazine's "The Top Ten Hottest New Guitar Players" in 2008.

Shawn is touring with a Category 5 Andrew 4 x 10 combo.
