Wallin is a graduate of The University Of New Mexico, with a degree in Comparative Theology & English Literature. These multilayered influences can be experienced in great depth on Shane's newest album. "Philosophy has had a big impact on the way that I write songs and how they are going to affect people. In Eastern Philosophy they emphasize the law of karma, that whatever you give out comes back to you. This has a huge impact on everything that I do. In my songwriting I always want to be positive so that the positive comes back."
