Official Shannon is an independent UK female artist from Chingford, East London, whose soulful tones and bold lyrics capture all things honest and heartfelt. She has incredible infectious energy on stage as well as in the recording studio and collaborates creatively with producers to invent cleverly crafted indie pop style productions to her original music.

Using meaningful lyrics and drawing creative influences from artists within genres such as soul, pop and indie, the acoustic singer-songwriter from the Essex/London border has featured multiple times on BBC Music Introducing in Essex. After many air plays and an exclusive live session and interview for the BBC, Shannon finished off the year by being picked as one of The Best Live Sessions of 2021 alongside Dodie and Sam Ryder.

Official Shannon has been performing for over a decade and has a very theatrical background. She grew up training to be a theatre performer at prestigious institutions such as The BRIT School and The University of Chichester Conservatoire. During the rise of the covid-19 pandemic, Official Shannon turned her focus to creating and recording her own original music from home. Since the return of live music, she has already put on a countless amount of shows touring the London circuit and formed an incredible live soul band that occasionally supports her at bigger shows.

Official Shannon aims to promote authenticity, and self belief through her music, so others can feel enabled to pursue their passions and feel empowered to be themselves. Other artists that have influenced her musical style include: Amy Winehouse, Lianne La Havas, Lawrence, Lauryn Hill, Stevie Wonder and many more.

She has recently co-founded and curated a London Live Music event series called Under The Radar @undertheradarldn to showcase independent women in music and female creatives involved in local london businesses. See more on the News n' Gigs Page.
