After a motorcycle accident, at the age of 18, SHANNON lay in a hospital bed seriously broken mentally and physically - left to contemplate life handed back to her. She decided music (which was very new and dear to her) was the avenue that truly fueled her passion to exist and survive, then set her goals from that pivotal point. Within 6 months she was an accomplished bass player. Within 1 year she was playing large clubs. Within 3 years she formed her own band and was writing, singing, playing other instruments and recording at places like Electric Ladyland Studio under the production supervision of Roger Glover for Atlantic Records. In 4 years time, Tony Bongiovi offered her a production deal at the Power Station which she turned down to stay on the path that focused on her own musical career. Like a streetcar rolling uncontrollably through a red light, artistic design was challenged, and won, knocking SHANNON onto a freeway of illustration and painting...another gift bestowed on her. In 1998 Liverpool England gave her the title, "The World's Greatest Beatles Artist". This prestigious award drives her passionately and successfully on a wonderful road, but SHANNON was always checking her rearview mirror to see her music waiting, calling, and most times...frustratingly haunting her. In 2008 life's crossroads paid another visit. Shannon's friends gathered to say one word...MUSIC. In the spring of that year, close friends May Pang and Dennis Ferrante pushed Shannon to bring her bass guitar to a party at May's home. It only took one song and instantly her heart was fueled and Shannon fell in love with music all over again. Her first album, RED PYRAMIDS and BLUE SKY, is the first letter of the first word to the first sentence of the first paragraph back to a truly missed lifestyle of distinctive passion. Her new songs are amazing and the list of musicians that came to help are some of music's finest. Steve Holley, Denny Laine, and Dennis Ferrante are just a few on the hit list. The new album is due out in the summer/fall of 2012.
MORE ABOUT SHANNON
SHANSONGS & MUSIC
Shannon has returned to writing music and is back in the recording studio. Her new project titled, "Red Pyramids and Blue Sky" should see release parties in a few states for the 4-song teaser (appropriately titled, "Test Drive" soon. With over 1,000 songs written in the last 12 years (mostly in Southern California) she hasn't had a problem with availability of songs, the dilemma has been which songs. After picking her final twelve she ran into another problem - she is writing like a mad woman again. Is the debut album destined to be a double album? Only time will tell.
Musician friends have come out of the woodwork to help. On the album so far is Denny Laine (Paul McCartney and Wings / The Moody Blues), Steve Holley (Elton John / Paul McCartney and Wings / Joe Cocker / Julian Lennon / Ian Hunter / Chuck Berry), Lou Pucci (Live and studio recording with Shannon for many years), and Grammy Winner and recording engineer Dennis Ferrante (John Lennon and Yoko Ono / Elvis Presley / Duke Ellington / Cher / Alice Cooper, Lynyrd Skynyrd and many more). The calls keep coming in and list is getting longer.
