‘But I have lots of people sending me videos and telling me what’s going on,’ he added.

Shawn then started waxing poetic about the role music plays in his life.

‘I think that when I make music, the ultimate goal is to kind of be sitting there and have my own truth revealed to me. A lot of the time when I’m writing songs, I’m using music as a platform to be able to get to a place inside myself that I wouldn’t be able to get to by just talking to people or thinking about it,’ he said.
