Everything Is Coming Up Rosebuds

Born and raised in West suburban Chicagoland, Shaun J. Wright spent most of his teen years immersed in the sounds of house music. His love for dance music expanded throughout his high school years as he partook in the underground dance scene now globally known as Juke. While in undergrad at Morehouse College in Atlanta, he developed his skills as a dancer/voguer in professional dance companies and the ballroom scene.

After acquiring an MA Fashion Curation, from the London College of Fashion, Wright enjoyed an active career in fashion in New York City. That is where he met Andrew Butler, founder of Hercules and Love Affair, and began a whirlwind collaboration with the ensemble as a vocalist.

Face Love Anew

so good I had to get it twice @stereogamous feat. Shaun J Wright - Face Love Anew

I rarely buy vinyl these days but once in a while there comes a record that is so good I have to get it twice. This one is buy Australian gay gayness duo stereogamous feat. Shaun J Wright. The melancholic deep house song is carried by Shaun’s smooth yet determined vocals. Face Love Anew in XTC.

You might remember Shaun J Wright from the last Hercules & Love Affair album and his solo debut on Andy Butler’s MR INTL label called Forevermore. I had included a remix of Forevermore on one of my minimixes.

Favourite versions of Face Love Anew: the orginal, Jason Kendig and Horse Meat Disco Remix. Listen below.
