A neo-soul vocalist & multi-instrumentalist embarking on her career as a solo artist, Toronto-based Shannon Chapman’s debut single What You Do is out now!

Shannon’s brand of neo-soul features lush & satisfying jazz harmony, straightforward lyrics and sing-along-able horn lines reminiscent of her influences Steely Dan, Moonchild, and Icelandic soul group Moses Hightower. However, Shannon embraces her sweet, clear voice and background as a saxophonist and pianist in a way that is uniquely her own. Honesty and vulnerability are an essential part of Shannon's practice.

“Shannon Chapman brings the 90’s hip-hop/R&B like it’s never left. And her biggest (so far) contribution is to make that sound updated and so very delicious to listen to... demure and sweet voice...” - Come Here Floyd

After opening for the smooth & hypnotic LA neo-soul trio Moonchild with her band at The Drake Underground on June 4, 2017, Shannon has focused her efforts on writing and self-producing her solo releases in partnership with Maisonneuve Music.
