Shannon Lee is a sultry new Canadian vocalist who has just released her debut CD "Kiss 'n Tell". The disc is replete with smokey vocals, cheeky lyrics and "oh-so-hummable" tunes. Pop/rock with some country flavor - it's decidedly sassy!
"Lee sings about finding and losing love, resisting and giving in to temptation in a voice like raw silk - warm and smooth, throaty without becoming raspy." Entertainment Editor, Langley Times
Shannon Lee is a former "prairie girl" from Manitoba who now resides in Vancouver, Canada. Her debut CD "Kiss 'n Tell" has just been released and is getting the singer/songwriter noticed.
Growing up in Winnipeg, Shannon Lee honed her skills as a musician by studying classical piano and guitar as well as playing the alto saxophone in the school concert and stage bands. Her love of drama motivated her to train at the Manitoba Theatre Workshop. Later, Shannon could be seen in various plays and musical theatre productions including on Rainbow Stage. As for the music scene, Shannon and her bands were a regular feature on the circuit at Winnipeg clubs.
Shannon Lee is equally comfortable sitting at a grand piano singing jazz and blues or fronting a rock 'n roll band. Her versatility as a multi-instrumentalist, singer, dancer and actor has led to a varied and interesting career as a performer.
I do play live, although there are certainly not many venues for original music in the Vancouver area. I usually do an unplugged version of my CD - 2 acoustic guitars or guitar and keys. I perform both as a duo, with Colin Rankin on lead guitar, or with a 4 piece band.
