A local Connecticut songwriter. Her voice and lyrics hit you in a soft subtle way making you relate and feel what she is expressing. I love slipping into the bits of Shannon’s life and mind that she chooses to share with her music.
This woman is a classic song writer her lyrics and music express and touch on things we have all felt at some time.
An evening with Shannon is a delight!
You can often find her playing around the state or in the virtual world Second Life.
“Shannon McMahon, a singer/songwriter from Stratford, CT, creates contemporary folk music with rich vocals and songs that resonate with a strong sense of the human experience. Shannon got her first guitar at the age of nine, and wrote her first song when she was ten years old. She started performing publicly when she was 12, at church, coffeehouses and other functions. At the age of 17, Shannon auditioned for and was accepted into a vocal performance class at the New School, in New York City, taught by Brown Bradley.
In 1996, Shannon recorded her debut CD, Some of My Years, an independent release that features 12 original songs in a contemporary folk style with a hint of country flavor. Her warm, earnest voice is reminiscent of Joan Baez and Natalie Merchant.
Since 2008, Shannon has also been performing daily for worldwide audiences in Second Life. She was chosen as a finalist for the CT Folk Fest for 2015, and was also selected as an alternate for the 2015 CT Folk songwriting contest.”
