To my delight, Alec obliged when I asked if he might grab a guitar and share a song with me, and he performed an unplugged version of I’ll Just Let You Down, a new song from his upcoming album.
Several of Alec’s most popular songs are featured throughout our discussion as we banter about about his romantic life, his (super talented!) creative process, and how he’s dealt with stage fright and performance anxiety.
Currently, Shaw is working with producer Andy Park (Death Cab For Cutie, Noah Gunderson, Macklemore) on a new album, tentatively titled Quantity. You can support his self-release and learn more about Alec on the project’s Kickstarter page or at alecshawmusic.com.
