Shannon Grissom has been called the Sock Monkey Lady. Maybe that’s because Shannon has a line of Sock Monkey golf club headcovers that are carried on tour by six LPGA pros.
But that’s only one color in her crayon box, and Shannon likes to create with them all. The rest of the time, Shannon is an artist, television producer/host, songwriter and author.
Music was always Shannon’s first love. And her return to music shifted in 2010 when Shannon released her first CD, Hot Coffee Red Lipstick. Soon after, she ended production of her long running television series, Give your Walls Some Soul and began to focus her considerable energy on her music.
In the fall of 2011, Shannon began collaborating with songwriter Jason Shepherd. And by the spring of 2012, they completed their beautiful Americana CD, Virtually Possible.
By the summer of 2012, the shift was complete; her daily painting sessions were replaced with daily songwriting. With that shift she felt that she had finally come home again.
In 2015 She won American Songwriter Magazine 's Honorable Mention for her "Dry Spell" lyrics.
Currently Shannon is creating both collaborative as well as solo work, and maintains a studio in Coarsegold, CA.
