Shawn Massak is the vocalist for a band called Coalmine Canary (pictured above are members Justin Demers, left, and Shawn, right). I sat down with Shawn in his room just the other morning to discuss this Coalmine Canary demo called Entitlement. We talked about the circumstances in which this and other Coalmine songs have come into existence, influences both musical and otherwise, and the future of the acoustic guitar-based band with the recent addition of some new members, including a drummer. The finished version of this song can be heard on the band’s EP, The Company We Keep.
