Shannon O'Brien

Shannon O'Brien

Shannon grew up on Long Island, NY with parents who both loved music. She says she's been singing since she can remember - and that her first love is musical theatre. She hopes to one day perform in a musical; Broadway's her dream.

Her first musical idol originated on Broadway, Linda Eder. "The power behind Linda's voice is mind-blowing and the ease with which she belts is truly astonishing." Shannon's second idol has to be Karen Carpenter, whose voice impacted her from her earliest days.

Shannon has taken a few voice lessons, but felt she wasn't getting the type of help she needed. However, once she performed in a "Singer's Showcase," she realized that she loved to perform. Shannon plans to begin real vocal instruction within the next year.

Shannon is currently a stay at home fiance - and loves it for now. She adores cooking, baking and even cleaning the house. She says she's engaged to the most wonderful man in the world, Jason, and that she's very lucky to have found him.

About a year ago, Shannon and Jason made a very eagerly anticipated addition to their little family... a German Shepherd puppy, Rudy. They brought him home at 8 weeks old, weighing a measly 14 pounds and now, at 2 years old, he's almost 100 pounds. Just more of him to love!
