Vegas Hip Hop Artist, Shahan!

Depression, anxiety, and self doubt could have kept Shahan from living his dream. Instead of giving up on his musical journey, He fought through the obstacles set before him to become an inspirational hip hop artist in Las Vegas, Nevada! #vegas #art #rap



James Shahan grew up in southern California listening to artists such as Dre Dre, Snoop Dogg, and Digable Planets! When a middle school friend approached him to team up and spit some lyrics, he gladly obliged. Shahan had no clue what he was getting himself into.



Shahan and his friend continued to rap together for several years. Although his passion was in visual arts, he had discovered an underlying and overwhelming passion for music. Everytime he tried to lay it down, the emptiness he felt resulted in resumption. When he finally stepped out to perform on his own, his dreams were much harder to accomplish than he had realized.



"It wasn’t cool for people who looked like me to rap. I would study other artists to help me improve. I wasn’t confident in myself a lot of the time. I realized that this was me. It’s what I want to do. I’m always hesitant when putting out a new song, but this is me and it’s what I want.”



Later, Shahan attended a recording school in LA where he branded himself as, "The Machine”. He continued to record and mix himself while working part time jobs to make ends meet explaining; "I spent a lot of time on social media and making music. My friends would come to my gigs which gave me more confidence. Eventually, life took a turn. I lost my job and my music wasn’t having the reaction that I had hoped for. I became extremely depressed”.



In an attempt to improve his mental health, Shahan moved to Vegas to surround himself with family. He fell into an open mic scene which supplied him with the support and confidence he so greatly needed. He explained that his depression was still very present in his life yet the support of his peers helped him to regain his confidence within his growing talent.



"I am most proud of my sound. Music is my outlet and I connect with the experience, I write my music from my personal emotion.My new song, I Don’t Wanna Live In America, is out now! I am currently working on a new album called, Music For Carnivores, which will be released soon!”
