Boasting a thunderous voice and guitar skill to match, Shawn “Shootie HG” McPherson is a force to be reckoned with. With his rip-roaring vocal style and way around musical composition, he is the founder of the metal bands Hostile Groove and Earth Enslaved. 


An audio production enthusiast, he is always pursuing his next project, whether it be a new song, production, or working in the music industry. His work in the industry is extensive, ranging from video games, movies, and more.  Below are some notable examples:



  • Devil May Cry 3: Dante’s Awakening - Lyricist and vocalist for game’s vocal tracks, including “Devils Never Cry,” the main theme

  • Dead Rising - Hostile Groove songs, “On A Mission” and “Fly Routine” used as boss battle themes

  • Devil May Cry 4 - Lyricist and vocalist for two of three battle songs

  • Final Fantasy XIII-2 - Arranged/recorded “Crazy Chocobo.”  Lyricist and vocalist for “Crazy Chocobo” and “Limit Break”​​
