Artist Biography by

Singer/songwriter Shad Weathersby was born and raised in New Orleans, LA. He began singing in his youth and took up the guitar at 14. In high school, he played in rock bands. He attended Southeastern Louisiana College, graduating with a B.A. in social work. After college, he and a couple of friends formed a folk-pop harmony group called Huck's River that moved to Colorado and California. When they broke up, Weathersby was signed as a solo artist by George Winston's Dancing Cat Records label for his debut album, Light Outside That Door, in 1985. Returning to New Orleans, he formed another harmony group, the Hooligans. His second album, Dreamworld, appeared on the Vertebrae label in 1995. It was followed in 2003 by a spiritual collection, To Behold the Light, and, in 2004, a children's album, Chomp Chomp, on Singing Rock Records. As the proprietor of a furniture refinishing business in New Orleans, Weathersby had plenty of work to do in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. He completed his fifth album, The Beaten Path, for release on Rolling Road Records in 2007.
