Shynes has the rare ability to blend shades of multiple genres over an acoustic landscape, and his songs possess a lyrical depth rarely paired with such universal appeal. Vastly emerging from humble beginnings in a small central Minnesota town, Shynes has toured with National recording artist Howie Day, as well as opening up for Emerson Hart of Tonic, Matt Hires, Eric Hutchinson, and Tyler Hilton. "The thing that seems to separate Shynes from other performers in his field is unquestionably his voice. With a range and falsetto that is nothing short of captivating, his acoustic finger picking style acts as the perfect bed of warmth on which his soulful lyrics can rest.
