Shawn Stockman, a member of the legendary group Boyz II Men, is releasing Feelin Lil Som’n, the ﬁrst single oﬀ of his upcoming solo album. The song is a roseate, hood-sophisticated, declaration of love backed by a slow riding groove; a modernized version of what Shawn and his music have always represented. “It’s a head bobber while drinking a nice full bodied Bordeaux,” Shawn explains. “A smooth, thoughtful love song and the perfect introduction for what I hope people will want to dive a bit deeper into with me.” Shawn Stockman’s Feelin Lil Som’n will be available Friday, July 27th on Apple Music, Spotify and all digital platforms.
Feelin Lil Som’n is Shawn Stockman’s ﬁrst release with SRG Records and its partnership with SRG-ILS Group, a leading music company notable for embracing new technologies that support artists and labels in recording and publishing. “Shawn is an amazing man,” says CEO Claude Villani. “It has been my pleasure to get to know him and work closely with him. As a musician, he’s multi-faceted; an incredible vocalist, outstanding guitar and keyboard player, and a brilliant songwriter. The SRG/ILS Group is very proud to be able to release such a diverse and thoughtful album. Feelin Lil Som’n is going to wow a lot of his long time fans and create many, many new ones.”
As a member of Boyz II Men, the best-selling R&B group of all-time, Shawn is known for the international smash hits “Motownphilly,” “End Of The Road,” “I’ll Make Love To You,” and “One Sweet Day”. Outside of the group, the accomplished lyricist, composer, arranger, and musician has collaborated with artists including Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson, Tank, and Johnny Gill. In 1996 Shawn had his ﬁrst solo hit with “Visions of Sunset” from the Mr. Holland’s Opus soundtrack, a ﬁlm starring Richard Dreyfuss. Last year, Shawn surprised fans by providing backing vocals on the latest Foo Fighters album, Concrete and Gold.
In addition to his music work, Shawn is a popular television personality, most notably as a judge on the popular competition series The Sing Off, which ran for five seasons on NBC.
He continues to tour regularly with Boyz II Men. “I love performing with my guys! I will do that till I can’t anymore. I think we’ll eventually do another record. Till then, I’ll be holding it down for the brand I helped build and maintain.”
Shawn is thrilled to ﬁnally release his ﬁrst solo album. “Timing is everything. When the idea was presented, I was experiencing some personal events that made me realize it was now or never. So I did the best I could with Feelin Lil Som’n to present something that might get people curious to hear more.”
Shawn says he drew inspiration for the song from his past hits, contemporary songs across many genres, and the last person who got him Feelin Lil Som’n: his wife.
