Shawn Eckels has been in a band since age 12 and always had a band. Having grown up in a Navy family, the travel bug was instilled early on. Toured and released 6 albums with, Speakeasy, based out of Springfield, MO, for 15 years from 1998-2012.  Currently touring the world and beyond with Andy Frasco & The UN, the band is about to release a new studio album produced by Dave Schools of Widespread Panic in 2018; and also just released a live album/DVD recorded in Bamberg, Germany in August of 2016 for a few thousand raging Germans!  Shawn is currently living in Colorado and loving life.

The DUO works perfectly with my iPad, especially when I set up all my chord charts and lyrics in a set list mode for a gig. You can just fly easily through the tunes and rock!!!” - Shawn Eckels
