Shawn Harvey (born 2 September 1971) is a UK singer, songwriter, guitarist, multi-instrumentalist and producer. Harvey, who has gone by the stage name Ricky Fentone, has written and recorded country, rockabilly and blues music.


Harvey was born in Plymouth, England, and grew up in a small tin-mining town in rural Cornwall listening to the country, rock'n'roll and blues music. He started playing guitar and writing songs at the age of 13.[1] Harvey began to developed his own distinctive style, taking bits from his early influences and adding in his own personality. In 1995, he recorded his first album Night Of Passion with his band The Flat Top Cats on a Prince's Trust grant. He performed under the name Ricky Fentone with the band until 1999, when the band broke up. Following their breakup he carried the Fentone stage name for a short time before switching to his own name. In 2004, he was signed by Kissy Music

Harvey has had international chart success on the internet, repeated Top 20 chart positions, with several global No. 1s on sites such as Besonic and Soundclick, regular internet radio play and has gained a large world wide following of Country and Rockabilly lovers who enjoy his music.[citation needed] Several European Rock'n'Roll bands have covered his songs live, and recently, Dutch Country singer Shannah has recorded a cover version of "Haystack Life" from the In The Hills album.[citation needed]
