Shannon Shaw is not just the front woman of one of Oakland’s most kick-ass bands and she’s not just a killer vocalist – bassist; she’s a genuinely kind person with an accessibility that’s hard to come by. There’s an air of purity surrounding Shannon Shaw, an aura of excitement around what she’s doing (her Instagram is a fun example). Shaw is accessible, she’s earnest about her projects, and she comes off as ever grateful for what she’s working on. These “purity vibes” come out solid n’ strong in her first solo album, Shannon in Nashville. We’re quite pleased she’s on tour and, of course, that she’ll be playing a couple shows in Northern California.
