Shannon a 21 year old Slane based jazzy, soulful vocalist who arrived on the Ireland's music scene with a bang just last March.
In the intervening six months Shannon and her band The Shortcuts have released their debut single "A Million Miles" which ended up single of the week on BBC's Radio Ulster. Played live on RTE's Brendan O'Connor Show. Performed a number of select shows in Dublin, London and Belfast. Debuted at The Electric Picnic.
At present, Shannon is working on a number of new tracks, which are in a slightly different direction, keeping the soul & attitude, but now with more of an edge. You will be pleasantly surprised. Recording will be finished in the coming weeks and that will be followed by another great video by the very talented Eoin Macken.
As promised Shannon & The Shortcuts make their silver screen debut next month. 'Cold' was set in Ireland, it is story about two disconnected brothers, written & directed by Eoin Macken & featuring Tom Hopper(BBC's 'Merlin'), Rebecca Night ( Sky1's 'Starlings'), Jack Reynor( 'Transformer's 4') & Liam Carney ('Gangs Of New York' & 'Braveheart'). Shannon sings two songs on the soundtrack and makes a cameo as a nightclub singer.
"Here is a wee video I recorded with the good folks at Bandwagon TV. Please let me know what you think."
