A talented recording artist, singer, and songwriter Shannon Burchett has risen to become one of Dallas’ most exciting performers. Armed with a modern pop sound that shines with heavier rock elements, Shannon’s authentic style has become central to his success, delivering a heartfelt sound that has won over fans and critics alike.
After learning guitar and piano at the young age of five, it didn’t take long for Shannon to find the spotlight, completing his first public performance the following year. A natural talent, Shannon spent the following years recording songs and covers through a string of local studies, eventually posting them to YouTube where he quickly garnered a loyal following. After delivering his own versions of modern pop anthems like James Arthur’s ‘Say You Won’t Let Go’, which earned over one million views, Shannon was invited to begin recording videos at the YouTube Space in Los Angeles, a massive moment that eventually led to his breakthrough single.
Recorded at Capitol Studios and released in early 2020, Shannon made his mark with the original recording, ‘Do You Know’, an instant hit that took flight from his social media channels and streaming sites. Since then, Shannon has continued to impress, channelling his contemporary sound into a stream of impressive new singles. Always melodically alluring, gentle yet engaging, Shannon’s songs aim high with integrity and feel, utilising only the essential building blocks required to set the vibe.
Last year, Shannon released his debut album, ‘Lucky’, bringing to the fore twelve tracks built around his standout singles ‘Nirvana’, ‘Higher’, and ‘Someday’. Built on heartfelt vocals that soar through every track, the album is a modern pop masterpiece that perfectly illustrates his talents. Through the tracks, Shannon creates a wonderfully alluring and brilliantly melodic sound, offering gentle yet engaging tracks that hit with honesty, authenticity, and truly passionate sound.
Offering a wonderful blend of sounds that range from atmospheric introductions, dreamy and hypnotic harmonies, and rising melodies, ‘Lucky’ is a gorgeous pop release that hits with sublime production and an accessible, relatable softness and emotion that holds your attention from start to finish. Available now on all major platforms, it’s a release that deserves to be heard.
Given his background in performing covers, it’s no surprise that Shannon has already developed a sound that goes well beyond his young years, and by borrowing from the greats, he’s been able to craft a sound that is modern, polished, and true to his core beliefs. Every performance remains true to Shannon’s expressive, vulnerable yet softly confident voice, and with each new release, he’s getting better and better.
Most recently, Shannon has released two new singles titled ‘In Ukraine’ and ‘Touch’, which have seen him continuing to expand his textured sound. With two new singles planned for release this July, there’s never been a better time to get acquainted with Shannon’s music, so make sure you follow him on his social media pages below.
