Shane is always in search of new challenges to seek new horizons, and so he began work on this crossover CD project nearly two years ago. The idea was for his audience to hear the trumpet as never heard before, as he believes that it has so much more to offer as a solo instrument. In doing this, he hopes to bring a new light into Classical music to encourage new listeners.
The trumpet can be heard in almost every musical genre, so it seemed obvious to Shane to fuse these together to create a new sound. This includes arrangements of well known pop ballads, hymns, film music scores and songs from the shows. This ‘easy listening’ music can be enjoyed by people of all ages, as there is something there for everybody. With the combination of fantastic orchestral arrangements, innovative artistic direction and his outstanding orchestra, this CD is certainly one of a kind.
