Shannon Pelcher / Bio

"Sweet yet heartaching vocal lines that immediately render allusions to the great jazz and blues women: Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, even Dusty Springfield." - phillyshakeitup.blogspot.com

With nods to Tin Pan Alley, 1960s folk and experimental acoustic, Shannon Pelcher has one foot dipped in the jazz world and the other planted in singer/songwriter storytelling traditions. Her dreamlike lyrics and lilting vocals are backed by elegantly deft guitar playing, and her sound is both vintage and contemporary, influenced as much by John Coltrane as it is by PJ Harvey.
