Rarely does a performer come along with such unbridled energy, dedication and natural talent as Shannon Smith. Shannon has been singing and performing since the age of six, creating her own style while also influenced by the poise and traditionalism of Lorrie Morgan, the showmanship and flair of Shania Twain and the musical strength of Sheryl Crow. Her charming and sassy stage presence demands attention and connects with her audience. No genre is off limits, whether it be driving country or classic rock, as is evident by her medley of 80's hits.

Since 2007, Shannon has graced the stage of several top-notch venues and events throughout Alberta, including the Big Valley Jamboree and the Alberta Pro Rodeo circuit. She has opened for country recording artists Johnny Reid, Duane Steele, Julian Austin, Aaron Pritchett, and most recently, for American country super group Lonestar during The  2011 Calgary Stampede. 
 
Shannon was thrilled to be the 2009 winner of the Country 105/Lammle's Rising Star Contest held at Ranchman's in Calgary.  This honour has helped accelerate her career and she’s recently released her much-anticipated debut album "Tell Me Something", working alongside acclaimed producer Johnny Gasparic, who has worked with Jo Hikk and the Poverty Plainsmen, among others. While maintaining her girl-next-door charm and honest sincerity, this Calgary country singer’s star continues to quickly rise.

“Making music is a life-long passion that can't be ignored’, says Smith. One thing is certain, this beautiful and talented singer's unmistakable style and distinct sound is sure to draw rave reviews and serious attention throughout the music industry.

Smith achieved her first Top Ten single on Hot Country in Queensland, Australia with ‘Settle Down’ and the new release ‘ Can’t Have My Heart’ (from the same Tell Me Something album) is sure to gain momentum on the country charts.
