Shed My Skin ist das lang erwartete Solodebüt des aus Los Angeles stammenden Dan Navarro, nach 14 Alben in über 20 Jahren mit Lowen & Navarro. Das Duo war in den 90er Jahren Stammgast im US-Radio.

Shed My Skin wurde produziert von Gitarrist Steve Postell (Danny Kortchmar, Jennifer Warnes, Little Blue) und enthält Duette mit Bluessängerin Janiva Magness, Hit-Songschreiberin Wendy Waldman (Vanessa Williams, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band), Grace Pettis und Brother Sun.
