Shannon is a vocalist, instrumentalist and producer based in Toronto, Canada.

Shannon self-recorded and produced her debut solo EP Ebb & Flow in 2020. Best described as alternative R&B or neo-soul, the EP winds introspective lyrics around warm Rhodes piano grooves and jazz-influenced horn melodies.
Though her current musical focus is jazz and R&B-oriented, Shannon’s musical experience and passions include jazz big band and chamber group, Latin orchestra, singer-songwriter, and more. Her strengths include vocal and horn arrangements, session work, and improvisation.
