Brandy “Brokenhearted” Cover - OUT NOW!



Shannon Lauren Callihan brings a new spin to neo-soul.

Nashville-based R&B/soul singer-songwriter Shannon Lauren Callihan has found a way to bring classic sounds to a new audience. Finding inspiration across the spectrum, from Tom Misch and Anita Baker, Callihan fuses infectious pop melodies with improvised jazz instrumentals to create a sound all her own. Originally from a small town in Kentucky, the 2016 move to Nashville pushed Callihan to hone in on her songwriting and instrumental abilities. “I’ve always been into music, but never saw myself being an artist. Maybe it was growing up in a small town, but Nashville pushed me to explore that side of me,” says Callihan. The release of her first single, “What You Do to Me”  in 2019 was the culmination of years spent building a fanbase on Instagram around her guitar playing and finding her sound within the music city scene. Callihan’s presence on Instagram community, Pickup Music, brought her fans and collaborators alike.

The current guitar player for her project, Curt Henderson, was introduced to her through the community, who then connected her to current producer Jude Smith. Bass-player Sam Fruend (Stoop Kids), keys player Josh Blaylock and drummer Nate Felty complete the band that is unmatched in their live performance. Just as they all came together, Callihan won the Emerging Artist Fund competition through Pickup Music, giving them the opportunity to play Rockwood Music Hall in New York City. Callihan has seen famous stages including Red Rocks while playing lead guitar for Rozzi on the O.A.R. and American Authors tour. The momentum has continued with editorial playlisting from Spotify on their “Nu-Funk” and “Ready for the Day” playlists, as well as partnerships with Fender, Supro, Orangewood Acoustic Guitars, and Ernie Ball.

Callihan continues to push forward as she plans upcoming releases and debuts live performance videos with Our Vinyl. Her latest single “Love You Right”, released on September 4th, is a soulful release heavy in her R&B roots. Callihan can be expected to continue with releases through 2021 and when looking to the future says, “It’s taken me awhile to get where I am, but I just had to connect all the dots. I’ve done so much as an independent artist, and I feel confident in who I am. Now it’s all about putting out good shit and building that fan base.”
