Visiting the LA area, I had received a copy of Shannon's new CD "Califonia". The next day I listened to this CD, especially the title song Califonia multiple times while driving up Hwy 101 towards Santa Barbara. It was such a beautiful warm day, and with the scenery all around, it was like watching a live music video about California! I highly recommend this album! Thank you Shannon for your creative talent! I will enjoy this work as much as everthing else I've heard for a long time!


Sweet, perfect pop songs
As a big fan of classic pop music from the 60's, I am constantly on the lookout for artists with a great sense of pop songcraft. Shannon Hurley has won me over with California. The songs are instantly sing-alongable and catchy. This is her most solid collection of tracks yet, and her lyrics are better than ever. California seems to me to be a collection of loosely connected songs about the LA experience - the adventureous spirit of those that come here searching to fulfill their dreams ("Hollywood & Vine", "Signs of Life"), the sobering reality of life in the big city ('In Your Shoes", "Slow Down"), and finding your own voice ("California", "Looking For Sunshine"). Shannon's vocals soar above the modern rock backing tracks that are tastefully understated. I read that she produced many of the tracks herself - maybe there's a second career ahead? Either way, Shannon and California are all about the songs - no bells and whistles needed here. Hopefully this will be the record that captures the world's attention and shines a light on a true talent.
