Part of the new "soft revolution", Shannon Hurley fits into the new line-up of artists who make quietly beautiful music. It borders on the edge of pop, folk, and rock. After even one listen, the melody has already been carved into your soul, rich with imagery and sensation. Her music is reminiscent of Leona Naess.
This Indiana-born artist studied with Pat Leonard (hit songwriter for Madonna) and is now on the airwaves of Los Angeles. She is currently touring, writing, and recording her second album. Her self titled debut is available through CD Baby, Tower Records, and Amoeba Music.
Shannon is also a sought-after session musician, performing keyboards for artists on major labels. In addition to these accomplishments, she is also the co-founder of
"Don't Call Us Tori!" (www.dontcallustori.com), a showcase for quality women singer-songwriters. These shows are held in L.A. venues such as the Hotel Cafe, Knitting Factory, and Genghis Cohen.

Pop-rock songwriter Shannon Hurley might be American, but her music suggests otherwise. She is often compared to the Swedish band The Cardigans for her dreamy vocals and rich chord voicings. Already receiving airplay on Indie 103.1 in Los Angeles, she is currently touring as a solo artist and with full band. Her self-titled debut EP is available through Tower Records, CD Baby, and Los Angeles' own Amoeba Records. In addition to these accomplishments, she is also the co-founder of Don't Call Us Tori, a showcase for quality women singer-songwriters, which is held at various clubs in Los Angeles.
