Artist Of The Day: Shannon Shaw

posted by Shane German on 03/17/2020

A garage rock diva whose music merges the sounds of doo wop and '60s rock with the bold attitude of indie and underground sounds, Shannon Shaw first gained an audience as the leader of the group Shannon & the Clams.

Powerhouse producer and Black Key’s guitarist  Dan Auerbach signed Shannon & the Clams to his Easy Eye Sound label, and produced their fifth album, Onion, released in February 2018. Then just four months later, premiered Shaw's first solo album. 

Shannon in Nashville teamed Shaw with a studio band that included veteran session men Gene Chrisman and Bobby Wood, and saw her adding country and pop accents to her retro garage sound.
