Neo-soul vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Shannon Chapman is fresh off the release of her debut single, What You Do (Maisonneuve Music). Solo, she crafts a raw and intimate performance featuring lush jazz harmony, straightforward lyrics, and stick-in-your-head melody reminiscent of her influences Moonchild and Steely Dan. With band, Shannon has the freedom to express herself on additional woodwinds, laying down those bouncy, sing-along-able horn lines.
Raised in small-town Manitoba, highlights of her young career include opening for her musical idols Moonchild in 2017, and a glowing review of her single by Come Here Floyd ("Brings the 90's hip-hop/R&B like it's never left... so very delicious to listen to... demure and sweet voice..."). Honesty and vulnerability are an essential part of Shannon's creative practice.
Currently playing: originals solo & with band, with Megacity Swing Band, with Brent Miller LIVE Wedding Band, with Violetta's Door and sitting in with BackTrack Band and the Blackboard Blues Band.
