Shannon Pelcher / Press

“Top Local Female Musician. Shannon Pelcher, a Philadelphia-area classically trained guitarist and singer with the Iron Threads, is known for her jazz and blues repertoire. She is influenced by Billie Holiday, Dusty Springfield, Ella Fitzgerald and Tin Pan Alley greats. Following in the footsteps of other great lyrical storytellers, she is a skilled guitarist and is known for her distinctive voice.”

"The first thing I noticed about Pelcher was her voice. Pelcher has a very beautiful singing tone that is reminiscent of an older, more soulful era. That voice is so mesmerizing that for a few moments I sat there only able to think to myself “I love her voice.”

“The recipe of Pelcher’s debut EP consists of elements from many musical eras, cooked into the modern day singer/songwriter’s storytelling traditions. Her voice blends the strong smoothness of Billie Holiday with inflections of today’s fierce females, wearing a present day edge with soul.”

“Shannon Pelcher. Shannon is a jazz trained, classical guitar strumming songstress whose sweet yet heartaching vocal lines immediately render allusions to the Great Jazz and Blues Women: Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, even Dusty Springfield.”
