Hello, my name is Shawna McGarva. I come from a long line of struggling, yet genius musicians, and I hope to be the musician of the family that proclaims the music in my heart to the rest of the World. I have lived in the States and Canada, along with other short term travels throughout Asia and the South Pacific. I am in love with New Zealand now. It's the place that brought the music and the spirit of hope back to me... and I never plan on giving up on the music. I have recently joined a band called Laidrive, which sounds like a mixture of The Chili Peppers, Muse, and sum awesum Punk/Funk sounds. Quite a difference from my solo career. I love melodic chords and just music that moves the inner depth of your soul. The kind that gives you goose bumps... so now I'm a mix of Punk/Funk/Melodic...and acoustic!:) Can't beat that for Genres! Music feels like the complete and utter peace and meaning of my soul...It's my cuppa tea:).
