Shawn Anderson has grown up and lived his whole life in Port Huron, Michigan. He loved all styles of music when he was young, but had a deep love for the "Motown" sound.
He is currently working on his debut CD "black market". He’s recording, mixing, mastering the entire project at CHARTERHOUSE STUDIOS.
"I plan to bring hip hop back with feeling, meaning, and substance. I concentrate on making music that is true to me and reflects my life and experiences - songs that people can often relate to as if I read their mind. "
Tek (which is what we will be calling Shawn going forward) has a very creative style of producing. He incorporates such beautiful sounds. Sometimes you hear almost an entire string section of an orchestra, then it builds and goes right into rap. Very, very cool. He is not afraid to experiment with new sounds. It makes him unique in the hip hop/rap world. But it’s not just that he experiments with sound, he knows where it needs to be placed in the song – at the right time to be the most effective. That’s talent.
His new single, "NOT 2 DAY" is off of his new CD, "BLACK MARKET". This single is sending out a message loud and clear - "Message to anybody trying to keep me down, judge me, or hold me back , NOT 2 DAY". This new CD will be out in August of 2009.
This CD is very representative of who TEK truly is as an artist. It captures the direction that he is taking in his life and in his music career.
He does have prior CD’s. "Organized Rhyme" in 2005, "The Definition" in 2007, "Lost Muzik" in 2008 and Vinyl Heaven" in 2008. He has performed at the Emerald Theater in Mt. Clemens in 2006 and also at The Metro Times Blowout in Hamtramck in 2006.
"If you want to listen to music with a meaning, you can relate to, listen to me. Hip Hop is not dead. It lives through every lyric I write. Thank You"
