The Aftermath of open mic night 3/21/19 at 2-Fer's!

Watch the video here!

Open mic night went very well guys! Thank you to everyone who came out to show some love and enjoy a wonderful night with me!

I performed my songs;

pressure, by your side, I can't hear you, a home in the clouds, and then I tried out singing my newest song 'anything' for the first time in a live environment!

Every body was VERY positive and supportive, and I really appreciate that. Especially at this juncture in my life. I'll be practicing and improving as much as I can, thank you for helping me on my journey!

And even though I make some of the ugliest faces a creature from this planet could make while singing... They still invited me back to play more songs! So next week I will be back if anyone cares to join me that would be awesome!

I didn't exactly kill it, but I didn't butcher any of the songs this time, either. So that is a definitive WIN in my book!

Here's the link to the video from that night!

Love always,
justin shane

some peace in the trees - with justin shane - watch me fall on my ass!

So I had the grand idea of hiking out into a desolate wooded area and capturing some random footage and even going Live on here for a little bit! I thought it would be a lot of fun, and it was! So I'll definitely be doing it again!

I'll try to come up with some more interesting things to feature in my peace in the trees segments, if there's anything in specific on the series just let me know! Send an e-mail to

Justin Shane - My Experience of my First Open Mic!

   Here is my video documentation of my first night performing at an open mic! And below it is my experience fully fleshed out via text. I really wanted to narrate over this video... But I've tried several times and wasn't happy with the way anything turned out so I decided to post it as it is! Thank you so much for checking it out! Let me know your experiences of performing live in front of a crowd or similiar experiences! I'd love to hear your stories!

(Please click the See More link to read my Facebook post documenting my experience! It's just easier to do it this way, I'm sorry!)
