John Shannon

About John Shannon: Modern folk guitarist, vocalist, and song crafter John Shannon believes in the power of music to enlighten the mind. Having already toured the globe with some of the brightest rising stars in indie rock, folk, and jazz, including Sonya Kitchell , Haale and Hiromi , Shannon's solo work has taken him on a journey into his own soul and beyond. Starting with an exploratory meditation trip in the southwestern desert some years ago, John Shannon discovered his unique, tender voice, inspired by the openness of American landscapes, and translated it into his debut solo album, a subtle masterpiece called American Mystic.

In addition to his solo work, Shannon has spent the past several years performing and touring with an eclectic group of break-out stars. He's recorded three albums as leader of Waking Vision, and toured as electric guitarist for psychedelic Sufi trance rocker Haale , jazz fusion piano phenomenon Hiromi, avant-jazz singer Pyeng Threadgill, and played guitar for Sonya Kitchell 's ground-breaking folk album Words Came Back to Me (Velour/Starbucks Hear Music) and her subsequent national tour. Shannon continues to play with Waking Vision, whose fourth album is slated for release on ObliqSound in fall 2009. He recently collaborated on British pop rocker Gary Go 's debut album Say Less (Decca). Shannon also still tours with Hiromi's Sonicbloom and in duo with Sonya Kitchell.

John Shannon is currently touring in support of his album American Mystic on ObliqSound.
