Shannon McNeal


Smoky Mountains Songwriters Festival, Shannon McNeal, Songwriter, SMSWF, Gatlinburg TN







Folk-Pop multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter Shannon McNeal combined her love of poetry and music early in life and has developed a knack for wrapping relevant life experiences into catchy lyrics. Her quirky lyrics and unique melodies place her at the stylistic crossroads of Ed Sheeran and Ingrid Michaelson. In March of 2017, she released her first independent studio EP, Places, and has kept busy since then releasing her single “Winter Will You” in December of 2017, her single “Share My Reality” in April of 2018, her single “Cash You In” in May of 2018. Her newest album will be released in July of 2018. With a home-base of Nashville, she wastes no time – always coming up with fresh ideas and new music, all while self-promoting, self-managing, recording, and playing a multitude of venues and festivals around the southern United States. Shannon was a semi-finalist in the 2017 Nashville Rising Star competition and continues forcing her way into the indie music scene with a “can-do” attitude.  To keep up with her musical endeavors, check out her website and find her on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, and all other online music listening platforms. You can find her on Instagram @ShannonMcNeal and on Facebook as “Shannon McNeal Music”.
