ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Shannon Kennedy's latest creation, "The Lost Voyage" shows a sophistication and elegance that belies her omnivorous appreciation and understanding of the worlds of music. A mixture of folk, classical and filmic stylistic characteristics, the dramatic work reveals the artist's compositional maturation. The work is dominated by a steady driving ostinato in combination with powerful and dense harmonies. This ominous ostinato theme is dark and in the narrative seems relentless, however periodically the foreboding tone is unexpectedly contrasted with welcome sections of sonic of repite. The eclectic orchestration, the filmic drama, and the edgy ostinato serve to make this a highly descriptive, visually inspiring soundscape.

A preview of Shannon Kennedy’s upcoming EP ‘L’Hiver’ already receiving positive results
Kennedy’s explorations in new format proving popular amongst music listeners
Los Angeles, CA - January 30, 2011 – After the success of her first EP in the neo-classical genre, L’Automne, Kennedy releases the first single from her new EP L’Hiver to an excited audience. As part of an experimental series, Shannon Kennedy has been exploring a new style of composition unfamiliar to her smooth jazz and pop background, confirming her versatility and talent as a composer and artist. The Lost Voyage is the most powerful of her programmatic, contemporary classical music yet, and makes for an exhilarating introduction of what’s to come.
Les Saisons – A Programmatic Soundtrack to the Composer’s Life
The music from Les Saisons, is based on true events from the composer’s life, giving listeners an inside look into the personal, real, and uninhibited emotions of Shannon Kennedy through her music. The debut EP, L’Automne, featured music inspired by a fairy-tale trip to Paris (Maisons-Alfort), an upcoming move to Ireland (Gaelic Spring), a heroic confession of love (Manu’s Theme), and a pensive, yet romantic expression of emotion and self-reflection (I Am). Revealing the struggle and fear of one leaving one’s home and moving to another country is The Lost Voyage, the first single from her follow-up EP L’Hiver, due Summer 2011.
Prior to the release of the single, a promotional video was created and posted online to glowing reviews. United States: ‘Awesome song....!!!! Love it, can not wait to hear more;’ United Kingdom: ‘Sounds pretty epic;’ Portugal: ‘I'm so looking forward to it;’ and United States: ‘love it, great job;’ confirming the excitement and anticipation of its release by listeners across the globe.
Alicia Doyle of AllMusicReview.com also noticed Kennedy’s developed maturity and ability as a composer. ‘Shannon Kennedy's latest creation, "The Lost Voyage" shows a sophistication and elegance that belies her omnivorous appreciation and understanding of the worlds of music.
