Today we get to meet Shannon Labrie, a very talented singer songwriter who hails from Nashville, Tennessee.
The young songwriter comes by her fears more honestly than most, battling a serious (and ongoing) illness at age 9 and losing her father at 14. She grew up fast, at first rebelling, then spending several years on a curious solo journey across the country studying philosophy, theology and writing songs. Adept on the piano and guitar, the singer/songwriter says she was “raised on James Taylor and Lauren Hill.
Music Connection has named her as one of the “Best Unsigned Artists of 2012,” and Shannon will be part of the iTunes Nashville Indie Spotlight including Brooke Waggoner, Matthew Perryman Jones, Katie Herzig and Mindy Smith.” [Noisetrade]She has just released her first full length album, Just Be Honest.
Keep a lookout for it, you'll be happy you did.
