Website: Shannon Soderlund


Shannon is a Pacific Northwest Minister’s daughter transplanted to New York City. Both her songwriting and performance aesthetic reveal the playful and soulful duality between her wholesome upbringing singing in her family’s band and the visceral, urban energy that comes from the NYC experience. Pop-forward hooks are layered with feel-good bluesy grooves and complex sonic texture. With a voice that harkens to the golden age of the crooner, Shannon sings about life: love and loss, pets and workweeks.
