Shawn Kerr


Singer-songwriter Shawn Kerr grew up surrounded by music in small-town northern Ontario, on the banks of Georgian Bay in Parry Sound. He studied piano from a young age and played drums in hardcore bands in high school before completing a degree in drum set performance and music cognition at McMaster University in 2016.
During his time in Hamilton, he played drums in alternative folk band The Human Orchestra. When The Human Orchestra disbanded, Kerr took the opportunity to pursue a self-titled solo project, making the transition to guitar and vocals. He won a recording contest found on kijiji in 2016, which provided him with the opportunity to put together an EP at Hamilton studio Green Room Recording and kick-started a year-long domestic and international tour around Canada and New Zealand. Upon his return to Canada, Kerr spent a year in Parry Sound developing and refining his love for creating rhythmically-complex songs with richly visual lyrics. After recently working and performing in Argentina, Antarctica and Norway, further refining his sound, Kerr has relocated to Toronto and completed recording his new EP, Coming To, which he looks forward to sharing alongside a new live show.
