In 2015 Shane released his second record "Free" which was produced by the veteran and multiple Grammy Award winning producer & engineer, Stacy Parrish.
With "FREE" the "New Mexico-based singer-songwriter, creates reflective narratives rich in hooks, heart and authenticity", said Dan Kimpel, Americas Foremost Authority on Singers & Songwriters. The 2015 release included the extensive cast of Jack Casady, (Jefferson Airplane founder & Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee), Wally Ingram (Sheryl Crow, Bonny Raitt), Arnold McCuller (James Taylor), Roger Love (John Mayer, Maroon Five) and Ryan Martino to name just a few.

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."
Shane is currently working on a new full length album called "From Sea To Sand'. The eleven song album is due out in Winter of 2019.
