Album Notes
POST YOUR \"One of Rolling Stone\'s top 25 artists on MySpace\"

\"A gifted and talented songwriter and performer\"
-Music Connection Magazine

\"Shannon has recorded some of the most immediate pop music since Damien Rice\"

As heard on: Indie 103.1FM (LA),
XM Radio, Muzak, Pandora Radio, (Cerritos College Radio), & the CDBaby Podcast.

Handpicked as one of Rolling Stone’s top 25 best bands on MySpace, Shannon Hurley\'s alternative pop style has often been compared to Aimee Mann and Sarah McLachlan, but her songwriting and singing have lifted her to a place that is completely her own.

\"Sunrise\" is the beginning of the 5 song EP that gave way to the “Ready to Wake Up” record. It pulls in a little help from Shannon’s heavy-hitting friends: KCRW favorite Carmen Rizzo, as well as Guy Erez (producer/writer for Jennifer Love-Hewitt, Sarah Bettens, and Ryan Cabrera) pitch in to make this album shine.

This Indiana-born musician has been playing music all her life, being brought up in a family of singers. Picking up piano at age 8, she then moved on to trombone. She graduated with a music degree from University of Colorado at Boulder, where she became the stage manager for Fox Theatre. After working in this capacity with Julian Lennon, Willie Nelson, Bonnie Raitt, and Rufus Wainright, she became enamored with songwriting. She studied with Pat Leonard (hit songwriter for Madonna) and moved to Los Angeles is 2001.

Shannon is also a sought-after session musician and spent 2005 touring with Universal Motown artist Brie Larson. This has given her the opportunity to open (with Brie\'s band) for Jesse McCartney, Gwen Stefani, The Black-Eyed Peas, and Gavin DeGraw. Currently she is touring to promote her album \"Ready to WakeUp\". She can also be seen playing keyboards and singing backup for international artist Marina V. In addition to these accomplishments, she is also co-founder for \"Don\'t Call Us Tori!\" (, a showcase for quality women singer-songwriters. These shows are held in L.A. venues such as the Hotel Cafe, the Derby, and Tangier.

Shannon was recently commissioned to write a song for the Getty Center exhibit, the Zuccaro Drawings, in which Frederico Zuccaro depicts the struggle of his artist brother Taddeo. Shannon performed at the Getty alongside Tom Freund, Jim Bianco, Beth Thornley, Priscilla Ahn, and Libbie Schrader.

Currently Shannon is compiling an album of remixes, of which over 400 versions of her songs from “Ready to Wake Up” have been lovingly embraced by the remix community. Expect the album to surface in the Winter of 2008. You can hear previews here:

smooth easy listening with great arrangements
Every song on this CD is good - there's no skipping about to pick and choose. Shannon has a soft and beautiful voice, perfect for the style she has. The music is highly original, yet reminiscent of classic harmonies. I recommend this CD for anyone that likes keyboard driven melodies sung by a true artist. Production is excellent, and so is the instrumentation. You'll not regret purchasing this CD!


Sunrise starts my musical day
One of my greatest joys while traveling was playnig the song Sunrise while watching it over Machu Picchu. Shannon's songs soundtrack life.


Go Shannon Go...Beautiful music...


it is great, please keep making this kind of music. It fills me up with energy.

Beautiful female vocals with KEANE type melodies,Great stuff!
Great vocals with wonderful melodies to boot.A female version of KEANE with a dash of Beatleishness!

Another treat from Shannon
Check out my review of Shannon's latest CD "Ready To Wake UP" (YES it is a "wow"). But you also need to buy her other two CD's so that you too can own the trifecta of musical perfection!

Like a gem her CD collection sparkles with brilliance and highlights a flawless and beautiful voice.


So lovely
I really, really enjoyed this CD. My favorite song is Sunrise- reminds me of Nina Gordon or Kate Bush. I think Shannon's voice and music evokes such a sense of peace and harmony.

Corey Leland

Greatest female artist of all-time!
Shannon, Your songs are top-notch, world-class and give me a happy feeling that very few ever have!!! I'm so proud of you and glad that we are friends! Thanks for lending your voice as the Mommy on "Mommy won't get you everything and "Don't bother Daddy on the telephone" Keep up the great work :)


Shannon's voice is amazing. I love the song "Sunrise" and that's pretty much what convinced me to buy.

Thank you CD Baby and Shannon for this CD.
