The 10-track collection spotlights the emotion and power behind the intersection between life and experience. As a product of his adopted hometown of Atlanta, the capital of urban music, his sound is an intriguing balance of eclectic pop, and southern and urban cultured sounds, which frequently earn him comparisons to Usher, Justin Timberlake, and Outkast. A Night to Remember is a sonic glide through those musical influences, into the story of the journey that took him from the pinnacle of mainstream music, working with artists such as Aaliyah and R. Kelly, to the solo stage.
From the first contagious beats to the last vibrations of a perfectly placed note, the record is not only about Shonlock's own journey; it's everyone's journey. "We all start somewhere. We all go through the same highs and lows, and hopefully come out better for them," said Shonlock. "That is the heartbeat of the album."
With the collaboration between Shonlock and his production partners, Joshua Crosby (Owl City, Matt Kearney) and Solomon "Soul Glow Activatur" Olds (TobyMac, Family Force 5,) the 10-song set features guest vocals from Ryan Clark of Demon Hunter, Olds, and longtime friend TobyMac. Standouts include the title-track "A Night To Remember" and the debut single "We Walk On Water," which blazed up the CHR charts landing at #2.

Through this album, Shonlock has committed to keeping the memory of the indescribable miracle of everyday life alive. And as he transparently turns his heart inside out for the world to see, he draws us all closer to our own memories of the moments our lives changed, to accept them as more than a passing emotion or event, but as 'A Night To Remember.'
