Shannon made the band and became a member of the multi-platinum selling group “Danity Kane”. Danity Kane’s freshman and sophomore albums released at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart. Placing them in the Guinness book of world records as the first female group in Billboard history to debut two consecutive albums at the top of the charts.

Shannon’s newest and most exciting project to date is the creation of her solo project. The valuable experience Shannon garnered during her five seasons on national television, coupled with her careful attention to every detail of the her unique sound and performance style have given birth to a musical entity that is not only gaining many regional fans, but will soon be featured on national stages from coast to coast.
Her sound has been described as “rhythmic country” a modern mix of R&B with the roots of southern soul. High energy and performance was the drive in writing and defining her solo sound. Which she says reveals the true heart of the performer.
“I am entertainer, it’s about giving a good show! Creating music that moves me and the audience is so important, it has to get into you,” says Bex.
