Shannon Wright is a powerhouse singer-songwriter from Atlanta, Georgia. She fronted the rocktrio Crowsdell in the 90’s, recording two albums. “Dreamette” and “In the curve of an arm”. Both featuring her intense writing, playing and singing. From her earlier and more gentle work Flight Safety (1999), to the vocally aggressive Dyed in the Wool (2001), Shannon has done an amazing amount of growth as a singer, songwriter, pianist and guitar player, and her work on Over the Sun stands as a document of those fully realized capabilities. She’s a frequent road warrior, playing shows everywhere from South Dakota to Brazil. Her live shows are emotionally charged, unbridled pieces of rock and roll, featuring Shannon’s trademark vocal howl and multi-instrumental palette. Most recently, Shannon was handpicked by Sleater-Kinney and Nick Cave to open some of their US tour dates.
