Shan Kowert and Annie Acton formed a duo back in 2005 and from the union of their name came the mystic band name of Shannie. After their debut cd in 2007, which received a nomination for Vocal Duo at the 2008 Texas Music Awards, they are now ready with a new album called “The station”. The production has been in the hands of John Inmon a well know producer and guitarist who poured his heart and creativity into this work.
The sound of this 12 tracks cd is mainly acoustic and the queen of the scene is a 12 string acoustic guitar which paints the songs with grace and charm. Their style is folk with influences from country and pop music. The voice of Annie is clean and smooth, with a strong feeling of intimacy and passion. She sings every tune with a personal style made of caresses and hot kisses. It is a pleasure listening to her singing track by track. One track is sung by Shan who also demonstrates to be an excellent singer.
The mood is romantic, there is a strong Latin influence in the writing of the songs. One track is in Spanish and Annie sings it beautifully. But there are also influences from the north, from the Celtic tradition. The lyrics and the atmospheres often become introspective and delicate. The only weakness in my ears is the sound of the album that I would have loved to be clearer. It is not a big issue anyway.
This is one of those groups that you never get tired of listening to. I have played their cd many times and this does not happen very often. It is probably the perfect blend of Shan guitar and Annie voice that make the experience very pleasant.

Bio

ShAnnie - Shan + Annie = ShAnnie

A duo comprised of Shan Kowert & Annie Acton. They formed in 2005 and released their debut cd in 2007, which received a nomination for Vocal Duo at the 2008 Texas Music Awards.
"Eclectic Americana Folk with Celtic undertones"... that's what some are saying about this duo. Their voices are clean and soothing, and the music is beautifully accompanied by a 12 string accoustic guitar. ShAnnies music is soulful, lyrical and mesmerizing. Annie will capture your eyes with her dramatic passion for each and every song. Someone once said... Annie, when you sing, I believe.
Meanwhile, Shan is crosspicking the twelve strings like nobody else, making it seem like he is playing two guitars. Whether it is Annie or Shan singing at the time, the other voice is floating around in harmony.
It is a fact... the chemistry of these two people will not only lure you in, but keep you wanting more
