Shawn Mullins' "Lullaby" was the prettiest #1 hit this country has heard in some time.

 Shawn Mullins: Ninth Ward Pickin’ Parlor - PopMatters Music Review
Shawn Mullins is best, and in some circles only, remembered for 1998’s “Lullaby”, a growly, early-dusk-of-the-soul narrative told from the stage of the generally inhospitable L.A. music scene.
Mullins’ voice is stepped up too; he gently drops his tenor into a weary swoon on the pretty “Faith”.
Mullins may still qualify to the bulk of folks as a one-hitter, but the nicely surprising “Ninth Ward” casts him again as a guy who deserves better.

 CD Reviews: Review of 9th Ward Pickin’ Parlor by Shawn Mullins
When singer/songwriter Shawn Mullins and his soulful lower register of a voice burst onto the scene in the late ‘90s with the hit song “Lullaby,” he had already been busting his ass as a performer selling records out of his trunk.
And while Mullins definitely has written some great songs over the years, he is always going to have that one-hit-wonder stigma in tow.
Shawn Mullins has certainly paid his dues in the music biz, and is probably living comfortably off of the royalties of “Lullaby,” thanks in part to the Clear Channels of the world that keep recycling the same hits of the last 20 years over and over again.

Mullins merely shrugged off the new-found notoriety "Lullaby" brought him: "There are certain rules at modern rock [formats], and I broke a few with this song.
One of Mullins" most notable mannerisms on his records since 1995 has been the inclusion of spoken word passages (particularly on the live discs, Jeffs Last Dance Vols.
Although partially inspired by Gil Scott-Heron and Kris Kristofferson, Mullins found these prosaic moments were a good way to win the attention of fickle audiences, and thereafter incorporated them into his studio recordings.

 Ink 19 :: Shawn Mullins   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The success of “Lullaby,” it seems, was both a blessing and a curse for Mullins: the pay dirt of a Top Ten single brought the reward his years of hard slog in coffeehouses and clubs deserved; but equally, major-label life conflicted with his organic, DIY spirit forged during years as an indie artist.
Now, after a stint in the songwriting supergroup The Thorns, Mullins is signed to Vanguard and his creative juices are flowing once again, as demonstrated by the sheer diversity of folk, country, soul and pop in evidence on Ninth Ward Pickin’ Parlour.
However, there's still an abundance of riches on this record, and freed from the corporate millstone, it’s obvious that Mullins has re-emerged both inspired and energized, back to his roots in both sound and spirit.

Sure, there are hip-hop inflected drum loops, tastefully retro-sounding keyboards and stylish, artful string arrangements, but Mullins' main concern is chronicling his experiences and observations as he moves through a complex, confusing world.
Most of the songs are based on acoustic guitar underpinning, and Mullin's appealing drawl is at the center of it all, delivering lyrics full of careful detail from his traveler's bag of tunes.
Mullins hit it big with his spoken/sung "Lullaby." He draws his influences from several notable singer/songwriters (chiefly Bob Dylan and Neil Young), painting interesting pictures of everyday life as lived by ordinary people.

"Lullaby" was more than just a one-off novelty hit that unexpectedly established the career of longtime indie singer/songwriter Shawn Mullins in 1998-1999 (though it was that, too).
It was a song that encapsulated both of Mullins' strongest traits.
Another good song is "Santa Fe," a driving song with a twangy guitar hook and more of Mullins' individual characterizations.
