Shannon, a female British independent artist based in London, is known for her hearty vocals and melodies. Her latest single, Dress To Please, is a positive, uplifting summer pop song that was inspired by her desire to combat the frequent instances of cat-calling, sexual harassment, and unwanted obscene or insulting comments made toward women. Everyone, regardless of their gender, size, or socioeconomic status, can benefit from this approach since it seeks to restore a sense of control and self-assurance to those who have felt powerless in similar circumstances.
Dress To Please combines elements of modern pop with classic funk and soul. In terms of sheer intensity, power, and charisma, Shannon’s singing is unrivaled. Even though her voice is often sun-drenched and multitracked, it is assured, putting harmonies and ambiance before synthetic belting. The energetic, sparse accompaniment that ebbs and flows around her serves to highlight her vocals.
The lyrical message is simple yet profound: wear what makes you happy and ignore the stares, catcalls, and abuse that may come your way. The point needs to be heard by all. The combination of Shannon’s exceptional musicianship and her clever, heartfelt songwriting makes for a truly unique and unforgettable concert experience.
In 2020, Shannon began releasing songs, and by 2021, she had caught the ear of BBC Radio Essex. As a result of the high quality of the material and the performances, it’s not hard to see why.
