"The Shaws", the duo of Steven and Lauren Shaw. They are worship leaders in Orange County Ca.
Their special talents include growing fierce beards (Steven), shopping vintage (Lauren), adoption and jamming with a soulful eclectic sound. Discontent with shallow pop-worship music, The Shaws have been swimming in the forgotten hymnody making them The Shaws.
The Shaws have been playing worship music together from the beginning of their relationship over 15 years ago. They would sit around and sing their favorite worship songs together from the start of their relationship. Since they started leading corporate worship they have been very intentional about the style of music and words they sing. They have been working hard to create a wide reaching style of music and solid biblical lyrics set to very fun music. They have achieved that.
Lauren and I believe that corporate worship is one of the most important tasks and callings of a Christian musician. Music moves people in a way few things do. Therefore, the songs we sing need to have solid biblical truths as well as being a pleasant, fun, and interesting style. But music can also force emotion. We don't create good music just for the sake of music, we are creating good music because the truths of Christ being sung out should attempt to sound as beautiful as the truths in it.
