Shawn Ellis Amos (born September 13, 1967 in New York, New York) is an American songwriter, singer, record producer, web personality and content creator, and pop culture commentator.

Amos's songs are notable for their starkly poetic lyrics which incorporate social commentary, historical influences, philosophy, and expressionistic wordplay. His recordings owe much to the Americana genre and often combine seemingly disparate musical influences such as country, soul and pop into the arrangements. His most recent album is Thank You Shirl-ee May released in 2005. It was written as an homage to his mother, a nightclub singer who performed under the stage name "Shirl-ee May".

Amos has worked with an eclectic group of artists as a producer, ranging from stand-up comedians to jazz musicians to R&B singers to mainstream pop culture icons.
