Shane Meade is a gifted singer songwriter and catalyst behind the Tampa-based, soul-infused folk rock project Shane Meade & the Sound. Hailing from Elkins, West Virginia, Shane is a self-taught late bloomer who borrowed an old guitar from his father and began playing and writing songs in the Summer of 2000 before relocating to the sunshine state. From a diamond in the rough to an artist on the rise, Meade remains simple and honest in his approach to songwriting. His music captivates the imagination, and audiences connect to his inspirational lyrics and universal subject matter. His unique and soulful style helps deliver an engaging live performance that is both powerful and uplifting.
