On Friday, June 7, 2013, the Museum of Making Music presents its popular Local Flavor Concert Series combining up-and-coming Southern California artists in an intimate concert setting with local food and beverages generously provided by Stone Brewing Company, Flippin' Pizza, and Knockout Pizza.

This concert features the music of San Diego singer/songwriter Tolan Shaw.

Who is Tolan Shaw?

Tolan Shaw is an accomplished singer/songwriter from San Diego, crafting songs based on travel and life experiences. He is better known for his work with the San Diego based band, The New Archaic, as the frontman. The band won Best New Artist at the 2009 San Diego Music Awards. In 2010 they received another San Diego Music Award nomination for Best Alternative Album on their debut full-length Movers and Fakers, and were in high demand to perform at San Diego's most well known venues, opening for international acts such as Switchfoot, Dashboard Confessional, and Third Eye Blind.

Tolan's solo work is inspired by travel, spiritual discoveries, nature, and big questions of life. He sees music as a way to delve deeper into his own journey through life and to connect with others, writing directly from the heart. Though differing from the music of The New Archaic, Tolan's solo performance is equally as captivating, exposing raw emotion and soul and brimming with dynamics. Tolan began to refine his solo show in 2009, putting on standing room only performances at local coffeehouses and opening for touring artists such as Matt Costa, Jon Foreman, and The Format.

After securing first place as 'Best Songwriter' at the San Diego County Fair in 2011, Tolan took off on a songwriting journey through Latin America, through 11 countries, 72 cities, and more than 300 hard boiled eggs... His newest solo work is a blend of catchy melodies, bluesy tones and lyrics inspired by that life changing journey.

Tolan is bringing all his influences to create a bluesy, melodic stew that is unique and tasty.
