Shane Landers as Paul
Shane was born and raised in Griffin, Georgia. He developed a love for singing at a very early age. Shane would lock himself in his room and sing along with anything and everything that blasted over his radio. He also sang in chorus throughout junior high and high school. At the age of 15 he began playing (right-handed) guitar. He fronted several local bands over the next 4 or 5 years. After high school he attended Gordon College and Valdosta State University. During those years he became interested in playing the drums. In 1999, he began singing and playing drums in an original band with Michael Fulop, who portrays George in the Return. Because of Shane’s amazing vocal range, Fulop and the other members of the band asked him to join the Return in 2000. There was one catch--he had to learn to play bass left-handed! He successfully accomplished the task and now has people believing that he has always played lefty. Since joining the band Shane has also learned how to play piano.
Shane lives in Griffin with his wife and their two sons. He enjoys golfing when he has the chance and spending time with his familly--most of whom still live close by.
