After a childhood spent in the Alberta foothills, she began playing music in Sault Ste. Marie at the tender age of fourteen. By sixteen, Shannon was writing and performing her own material, playing coffee shops and then moving up to bars at seventeen. Honing her craft, her song-writing, her voice, she played venues with names from a lost poem, The Fireball, The Steamy Bean, The Downbeat, Loplops.
Whether solo or with a band or sharing the stage with local artists, audiences are bewitched, enthralled, they are captured in her gentle grasp, unwilling to escape.
