Releasing an album during a global pandemic is tough to say the least, especially for performing
artists and music fans used to the powerful experience of live concerts. The multi-platinum
Canadian singer, songwriter and performer, Shawn Hook has been striving to find new ways to
connect in these distant times, and its the inspiration on his new EP ‘Take Me Home’ released
via Ultra Music.

The EP includes a collection of his singles from this year and brand new tunes. Listeners will
recognize his hits “I Don’t Wanna Dance,” “Holding On To You,” and “Deeper”. Plus, three new
songs including the introspective title track “Take Me Home”. All songs play a part in telling the
story of the past years’ personal experiences for Shawn.
“‘Take Me Home’ has been years in the making. Most of the writing was done pre-pandemic all
over the world from Sweden, London, Paris, LA, Toronto, Nashville and Vancouver” recalls
Shawn. “I’m happy that my fans who’ve been anticipating this release finally have some new
music from me to consume during these crazy times.”
The release of the ‘Take Me Home’ EP follows Shawn’s participation as one of the principle
performers behind the ArtistsCAN “Lean On Me” benefit collaboration featuring Avril Lavigne,
Justin Bieber, and Michael Bublé amongst others to raise funds for COVID-19 relief in Canada.
Several of the ArtistsCAN collaborators also participated in Shawn Hook’s ‘Living Room Live’
sessions hosted weekly on his Instagram account in the early lockdown months of the
pandemic. The ‘Living Room Live’ sessions gained Shawn Hook national press attention and
provided some uplifting connection and musical entertainment during the height of the isolation.
Shawn Hook’s single “Holding On To You” is currently charting at Top 40 radio in Canada and
is accompanied by an action-packed music video shot in downtown Los Angeles and co-starring
Bianca Van Damme.
Shawn Hook has continuously cultivated his craft of songwriting that has racked up an
impressive amount of streams in excess of 250 million, and multiple double-platinum hit singles.
Harbouring musical aspirations as a kid from a small rural community in British Columbia,
Canada, Shawn’s passion and dedication comes to fruition on ‘Take Me Home’.
