Still working on that hot first release.



As a vocal major, Shannon received her Performance Diploma at Malaspina University College ( Nanaimo, BC) in Jazz Studies. During her time atMalaspina she performed and soloed frequently with the Malaspina Choir, the Vocal Jazz Ensemble and several first-rate jazz combos. Shannon has also expanded her experience through performing in several roles in TV/film, gospel choirs and musical theatre productions including Titanic, The New Musical, Dracula...The Musical?, and The Rocky Horror Show. As well, she was one of the top 20 finalists in the David Foster Star search 2007.
After graduating in 2002, Shannon fronted many different bands with styles ranging from jazz to rock and soon she began to write her own music. This led to an opportunity to study songwriting in Tennessee (USA) for three months with industry leaders and to work as a session singer in both Nashville and Memphis. One of the highlights of this trip was the chance to perform on Beale Street and witness the sensational gospel and electrifying blues music. It was at this point she realized without a doubt that her own musical niche was blues, rock and soul. 
Since moving to Calgary, Shannon has appeared in Calgary Living Magazine. She teaches voice lessons at her private recording studio and owns a very entertaining singing telegram/prank business called Calgary Singing Telegrams. Her business has great success and has been featured in The Calgary Herald, FFWD weekly and on 96.9 Jack FM. 

Shannon won a myspace singing contest that landed her a role in the Las Vegas musical production called The Cowboy Cabaret.
 She currently lives in both Las Vegas, NV and Calgary, AB where she fronts bands and entertains regularly.
