New to the business but not to music, Shannon has been singing and performing since the age of six with unmistakable style, strength and sound. With a successful career outside of music, Shannon has recently focused her energy back to the stage. "Making music is a life-long passion that can't be ignored," says Smith.

Believing that every stage holds opportunity, Shannon became one of the three finalists in Calgary's Rising Star Contest held in the spring of 2007(sponsored by Country 105 Radio and Ranchman’s). With some kudos tucked securely under her belt, Smith entered Classic Country Idol in the summer of 2007 in Cochrane, Alberta (hosted by Country 1060 Radio). She left the contest as its Runner Up in 2007. Shannon returned to the Ranchman’s stage in the spring of 09’. This time she didn’t just place, she won The Calgary 2009 Rising Star Contest!

Since receiving these recent accolades Shannon has opened for various artists, including Duane Steel and Julian Austin, and played a number of venues throughout Alberta. "It's so refreshing," states Calgary musician Dale Wiens, "to come across someone so talented wanting to entertain for all the right reasons-primarily the music."

A great deal of effort has been put into Shannon's current project. It stems from the need and desire to form the ultimate band to fulfill any need a Club, Casino or Private Function may require. The band is seasoned, professional and up to date. Shannon has chosen from the most accomplished, entertaining, music loving individuals that Calgary and the surrounding area has to offer. The band performs with a variety of tones and attitudes; capable of favoring one genre over another-Rock or Country (or a combination of both) the choice is yours. Have a listen to her demo to hear the diversity in music. Whether it's the authentic sound of old-school, take no prisoners country or edgy top 40 country/rock, Shannon Smith will fit the bill.

Shannon has a bright musical future and will quickly become a crowd favorite with her honest sincerity and girl next door charm. One thing is certain; we are privileged to have this beautiful talent right here in Calgary
