Still spinning from the Stephen Stills Fall 2011 tour and also recently heard on MTV's The Real World (Cancun, DC, New Orleans & Las Vegas), Boston based piano player, singer/songwriter Shannon Corey truly reflects a beautiful new vibe of sensuous class. Having been named "Philly's Fan Favorite" at the 2010 Beta Hi-Fi Festival and also a recent recipient of both the 2010-2011 AND 2011-2012 ASCAPLUS AWARD in the Jazz & Popular Division, Shannon undoubtedly has received the praises of fellow artists and critics alike. She was named Keyboard Magazine's Unsigned Artist of the Month, High Times Magazine's Unsigned Artist of the Week and CD Reviews by You Pop Featured Artist. Her debut album Unsaid was released in 2007 under Mother West Records, NYC, and ensured her an endorsement with Yamaha alongside artists such as Elton John and Michael Bublé. On Tour, Shannon has had the opportunity to open for Lady Gaga in NYC, William Tell (of Something Corporate) in NJ, Lenka ("The Show") in Philadelphia, as well as Jon McLaughlin ("Beautiful Disaster") also in Philadelphia.
“Assured and nuanced, Shannon's keyboard work speaks of both classical study and a great sensitivity to what any given songs needs rather than how many notes it can hold before exploding” - Keyboard Magazine.
In September of 2009 she released a 5 song EP called Overdue which was reviewed by Tony Deans of The Cheers Music as being “one the most emotional EP's of 2009” and landed her the title ARTIST TO WATCH by RI's Type 3 Media. In 2010 she released the gorgeous guitar based single 'Doing Fine' and then in 2011 she released a solo/live album called A Little Less than Perfect! All music can now be found on iTunes!
With her new single "The Hug" to be released in Febuary of '13 and a compilation CD due in time for her May of '13 tour with Jared Salvatore, “Shannon Corey will be an artist we can watch for a long time to come” - Type 3 Media
