Shane is an award-winning graphic designer, professional pianist/keyboardist, music producer, dj, voice over artist, fashion designer, ASCAP songwriter, actor and entertainer in Nashville, TN. He "accidentally" founded Shane Almgren MultiMedia & Entertainment in 2011 after being challenged to create a business card that listed all his professional services and experience, with the daunting caveat that it be both aesthetically pleasing and actually legible. It was tricky. Fast forward several years, and he is proud to serve over 500 clients on 4 continents.
These days, he focuses his creative efforts on business branding and marketing; serving as a creative consultant to an assortment of startups and established companies alike.
Shane got started in theater at an early age, and has appeared in several feature films including Dear Mr. Cash, Like A Country Song, and Fatal Reflex; as well as the ABC Television show Nashville. He was one of the original members of the critically-acclaimed sketch comedy/theater production, Bye Bye Liver: The Nashville Drinking Play, which enjoyed a 3-year run. Additionally, he is the creator of the YSO Serious? fashion line, and is the host of the Live2cre8 podcast.
In 2015 he created the YSO Serious? fashion line because it was cold out and he was kinda bored.
But above all, music remains his first passion. He got started on the piano at the age of 4, and has toured both nationally and internationally with various artists and bands ranging from pop to country to hard rock. He plays out frequently with his 80's cover band, Max Headroom; and UP! A Shania Twain Tribute. He also writes and produces trance music under the artist name krystl bLu.
