When she was 7, her classical piano teacher told her she played like a boy.
When she was 9, she sang into her hairbrush pretending to be Amy Grant.
Just out of college, she shirked her pre-med Biology degree and made an earnest effort as the lead singer in a guitar-based rock band.
Two years ago she found her piano again, started writing love songs, and quit the band. Since then she says it’s been like walking around in an old, comfortable pair of shoes – playing the piano and singing songs about love.
The Los Angeles Times describes Shannon as "... a beautiful piano player who sounds like the love child of Fiona Apple and Norah Jones."
Shannon’s debut EP, Boomerangs & Seesaws, was released in July 2007 on the tiny Saint Cloud Records label, and the follow up, Paris Can’t Have You, was released in March 2008. Constant touring has been building Shannon a devoted following across the country.
