Shawn Mullins is an American singer-songwriter who specializes in folk rock, instrumental rock, and adult alternative music. He is best known for the 1998 single, "Lullaby", which hit number one on the Adult Top 40 and was nominated for a Grammy Award.

Atlanta-based folksinger and songwriter Shawn Mullins was serving a member of the U.S. Army Airborne Infantry division when he released his first self-titled cassette on his own SM label in 1989; after 1991's Everchanging World, he left the military after eight years to pursue music full time.

After three years spent fruitlessly searching for a record deal, he established a new label, SMG, in the interim releasing two more LPs, 1992's Better Days and 1994's Big Blue Sky. After 1995's Jeff's Last Dance, a live disc recorded jointly with Matthew Kahler, Mullins returned a year later with the solo Eggshells.

Soul's Core, his first album for major label Columbia, followed in 1998, scoring a Top 10 hit with the single "Lullaby." In addition to spawning another hit single, "Shimmer," the album eventually went platinum, paving the way for an anthology of his early work in 1999's The First Ten Years.

In 2000, Mullins released Beneath the Velvet Sun. In 2006, he released 9th Ward Pickin' Parlor on Vanguard Records.
