Intimacy, passion, truth, and a faith in God that will never fade away are just a few of the ways to accurately describe Shea. Born and raised in the small town of Cartersville, GA, just north of Atlanta, Shea, even as a young boy had deep passion for creating music for the King! At the age of 9 he got his first guitar and started playing during worship with his worship team at church. At the age of 10 he had crafted his first song. Shea is quoted saying, "I remember the song talking about driving fast cars and God being in complete control. Honestly, I don't remember anything else about the song other than that, but I believe that is the beauty of it in itself. Now that I am older, I look at the song completely different than when I wrote it. I believe the cars reflect our lives and how we often times try to live them on our own. But no matter what we do, God still proves himself to be in complete control."

Shea was raised in church and had received knowledge about a living God; however he did not experience his first true encounter with the matchless grace of God until the summer he graduated from High School. While out partying with some local high school kids, celebrating graduation, Jesus radically stepped in and transformed his life. The very next day, Shea found himself attending a bible study where he was surrounded by examples of the most encouraging Christians who truly desired to live out their faith here on the earth. These friends and family members encouraged him to study the word and inspired him to look at his own gifts and how to serve God with them.

As the presence of Christ penetrated his life and heart, it began to reflect in the music he was writing. After a series of ups and downs, learning how to have the heart of the Father and trust God with everything, "Waiting Before the King," a five song EP was recorded in the spring of 2006. The EP garnered critical acclaim and enabled Shea to book various church performances where he has led many thousands to worship before the throne of the Father. Now Shea has released his highly anticipated first full length album, "Dreams of Tomorrow". To Shea, this album is the essence of faith; speaking faith into your dreams for the promises of God that he gives to each of his children. The album reminds him of God's desire to push us to dream deeper and farther, to reach for that next step.

"It is my hope at least," says Shea, "that people can take my songs and make them their own. I think, for a songwriter to find any worth in his craft, he first has to give it away. People are honest, they'll let you know if they can relate to your songs or not."
