His Story

Originally a Victorian Country kid with a dad who played lead guitar in a rock band, with a variety of guitars laying around the house, It was inevitable that Shannon would one day pick one up and learn to play. Showing an interest in the Australian Indigenous culture from a young age Shannon has incorporated the didgeridoo or "yidaki" into his well polished live performance to give quite an Australiana feel to it. With a stomp box under one foot and a tambourine under the other to make up the he rest of his one man band, Shannon really brings a full sound to the stage. Shannon has now been playing music professionally for 5 years which all started out with running a few open mic nights here and there, but really kicked off when he formed a Folk band called Timber and Wood with a couple of his best friends, Marty Brown and Maisy Lou, in 2014. From there they went on East Coast Tours and played in multiple festivals all up and down the country from Victoria all the way to Far North Queensland where Shannon is based. Timber and Wood also went on to take out the Best Live Entertainment Award in the Port Douglas Business Awards, and then after the other members went overseas for a little hiatus, Shannon decided not to stop there and formed his solo act where in 2015 Shannon took home the Best live Entertainment Award again. Shannon now does around 200 solo cover gigs per year all over the far north regions of Queensland from chilled café gigs all the way to holding a residency at the local nightclub for Hospitality night where literally hundreds of hospitality workers and backpackers come to listen to his Tunes every week. So come, sit, relax or dance ya pants off and let Shannon take you on a musical journey that you will not forget.
