A departure from her last full-length album Long Distance Calls from a One Night Stand told stories of fleeting romances, travels and a love that might have been, Shanna's new Silver Linings portrays the love that is and all the good, the bad and "the everyday boring stuff that comes with it." Says Shanna about Silver Linings, “This new album I feel really shows how I’ve evolved as a person and a musician. I wanted to focus on what could be in my writing and what I wanted for myself. I wanted to believe in hope and passion. So what started out being songs based in thought or wish became songs of my everyday reality."

Often compared to Sara Bareilles and Alanis Morissette, Shanna has been called the “southern Adele” with her soulful vocals and rich, introspective lyrics. Raised in Montgomery, Alabama, Shanna grew up listening to Sarah McLachlan and Jeff Buckley and developed an affinity for moving songwriting and vocals. In 1999, Shanna took her shot to live in New York City with only $200 in her pocket to pursue music and acting. Once in NYC, she attended Circle In The Square Theatre School and performed music gigs at popular venues such as Bowery Electric, Roseland Ballroom, Crash Mansion and The Bitter End. She later traveled frequently to Europe to tour between 2002 and 2007. Since then, Shanna has settled back in NYC, has toured the southeast, and she currently resides in Harlem.
