The moment I heard a preview of the song “Belikin Whisper”, I had to download a copy of it from iTunes. Canadian singer/songwriter Shawn Brady pays tribute to Belize’s famous Belikin Beer and captures his best memories of Belize in this great song.
Shawn wrote the song “Belikin Whisper” in December of 2010 during one of his trips to Placencia, Belize. He sent a demo of it to a producer in Halifax, Nova Scotia by the name of Cory Tetford, a very talented musician who put it all together for Shawn. He just officially released the song on iTunes on January 31, 2011.
“I wanted to write a song that captured a laid back, fun, party vibe of Belize,” commented Shawn to Ambergris Today. “I have been to Placencia, Belize twice, and both times had such a fabulous time.”
Shawn says that it is the friendliness and character of the people that he likes most of Belize. “I have met so many wonderful people in the Placencia community. Also, it is Paradise and not run over by thousands of tourists. I must mention that in addition to the great taste of Belikin, I also love Marie Sharp’s and Grill N’ Go Hot Sauce! My girlfriend and I go through a bottle a week.
Maybe I should write a song about Belizean hot sauces! Haha!”
Shawn was introduced to Placencia through two wonderful friends of his, Jodie and Erin, who own the Secret Garden Restaurant.
“Belikin Whisper is a song that captures some of my favorite memories of Placencia Belize,” he continued. “Partying with friends until the wee hours and then getting up early and doing it all again! This process always involves several Belikins!” Click here for the rest of the story and more pictures
