Shamrock grew up in Johannesburg (South Africa) and has been crazy for music since being a young little boy (for example he sang as the soloist in the choir at his primary school), while growing up he explored his African roots to come up with his own style of music. In 2014, his first release came out on a South African label, shortly after he met Andy Compton who was impressed by this exceptionally gifted guitarist and songwriter. Ultimately Shamrock became the main writing contributor to Andy Compton's fabulous Sowetan Onesteps project, now he presents his phenomenal "African Music by African People" album which features local and international artists such as Bongani Mazibuko, Thabiso Paul Mogotsi, Asali Msanii, Han Litz, Jimmy Gabriel and Peng Records label head Andy Compton to name just a few. To make it short, this truly eclectic and inspiring album perfectly showcasing the unique ingenious African rhythms and sounds of Shamrock is by no means to be missed...
