Shane Harrison

Shane Harrison grew up in Pendleton, S.C., surrounded by dogs. When he wasn’t romping with them, he was forever parked in front of a cheap plastic record player, feeding it disc after disc of seven-inch vinyl. He spent several years working in record stores before landing at the AJC in 1990. After more than a decade writing about music, he’s now a digital coach. He creates and curates lifestyle, arts and entertainment content for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and ajc.com.
