Shannon is so grateful to have been immersed in music her entire life. Her parents and four siblings all played instruments and sang throughout her childhood and doing this together as a young family are some of her favorite memories. She recorded an album in Houston called 'Getting Better Road' where she sang for a decade with an extremely talented duo partner. She moved to Park City, Utah in 2012 where she really started to thrive and find her place and voice in the world of music. She loves collaborating with and supporting other musicians as much as performing. Music is meant to be shared and she finds pure joy in sharing her music with others. She's often told she reminds people of Jewel or Natalie Merchant but she believes that as long as she is true to herself in voice and music AND gives her best, that's the sweet spot of being a musician.
Shannon plays piano and guitar and mostly performs solo and occasionally as a duo, trio or with a full band.
