ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Shadowyze (pronounced shadow-wise) is a 2001 Grammy Nominated Native American Hip Hop/Rap Artist who comes from a background of Muscogee Creek, Cherokee, Scots-Irish and Swedish heritage. His lyrics are woven within a fabric of insight, life's experiences and social awareness. He received a Bachelors Degree in Anthropology from the University of West Florida.

Shadowyze was born in San Antonio, Texas as Alvin Shawn Enfinger and relocated with his family to Pensacola, Fla. at the age of eight. In 1989, Shadowyze launched his hip-hop career when his group, Posse In Effect, released the official theme song "Knock em out the Ring Roy" recorded for then Olympic boxing Silver Medalist Roy Jones Jr. which received strong support on regional radio as well as NBC Sportsworld.

The big turning point in his career came after Shadowyze spent ten weeks in Central and South America and Mexico in 1998 where he witnessed the cruelty of the low intensity war, military oppression and poverty imposed upon the Mayan Indian population in Chiapas, Mexico which inspired his 1999 multi-single "Murder in Our Backyard" which was endorsed by Nobel Peace Prize winner Betty Williams of Ireland.

Shadowyze has appeared on over 20 compilations with major players such as UGk, Pall Wall and Chamillionaire as well as released three full length albums; Spirit Warrior (2001), World of Illusions (2003), and (2005) release; the self-titled "Shadowyze" featuring platinum Latino recording artist Baby Bash, and the production wizardry of Nashville's Kevin "DJ Dev" Grisham (Haystak and Yo Gotti) of Devastatin Musik; production engineer of the triple platinum selling album 400 degrees by Juvenile and Happy Perez (Producer of Baby Bash's platinum hit "Suga Suga", as well as Frankie J., Mystikal and Master P.)

Shadowyze has supported the Mayan Indian Relief Fund and in 2005 he attracted national attention by helping organize and coordinate a Hurricane Katrina relief effort delivering $14,000 worth of needed supplies to the Choctaw Indian Reservation in Philadelphia, Mississippi.

In 2005 Shadowyze won both the Native American Music Awards and the Pensacola, Florida Music Awards for best hip-hop and has been the focus of several stories appearing in Rolling Stone, Vibe, XXL, Billboard, New York Times, Miami Herald and the Chicago Tribune. In early 2006 Shadowyze was featured on the covers of Downlow Magazine, Native Network and Getem Magazine.

Through Backbone Records; Shadowyze released Guerillas in the Mixx, a socially conscience compilation in cooperation with Big Lo featuring Public Enemy, The Coup, Michael Franti, Spearhead, Afrika (Jungle bros.) and Litefoot.

Shadowyze has spoken on Native American issues and performed his music on many Indian reservations, the Montreaux Jazz Fest in Switzerland and the National Autry Center in Los Angeles and opening for Chingy at Pensacola Florida Spring Fest.
