Being the daughter of such a famed Bollywood icon may have its good points, but it hasn't always been easy for Shannon. Due to her Father touring a lot and being away from home for concerts, Shannon found that she missed him dearly and this was difficult to deal with.
Fortunately, her inherent talent as a singer and songwriter meant she could channel her feelings into music and this became the perfect outlet for Shannon. The young sensation first appeared on stage at the age of four, performing a classical Indian dance at one of her Father's concerts and her studies of the 'Kathak' dance form led to her featuring at the 2007 Bollywood Awards Night in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Now, Shannon K is releasing her new album entitled Perpetual, which comes off the back of a number of successful previous releases including, 'Roll Back The Years', 'Sapphire' and 'Just Another Boy'. Shannon labels the album as her most emotional yet, addressing the way in which feelings can last a lifetime, as the title of the album suggests. Perpetual encapsulates a wide range of deep emotions and accesses them more fluidly through the medium of song. With a balanced combination of both party songs and sentiment filled love songs, it seems Shannon K has once again found a winning recipe with her music.
At the age of 6, Shannon relocated to London, before moving to the United States in order to showcase her music and singing talents to a wider American audience. Influenced by a number of notable artists such as Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Adele, Bruno Mars
and Justin Bieber, Shannon has even used the Canadian pop superstar as inspiration for her song 'Pretty Eyes', which is taken from the upcoming album.
In the creation of Perpetual, even Shannon's younger sister, Annabel, has played a part, co-writing many of the songs with her sibling. However, in the past, Shannon has also worked alongside talented producers such as Andy Whitmore, Steven A. Williams Rishirich, David
Tyrell, Tylor Lyons, Daniel
George, Robert Farren, Bora Karaca, Buzzy and C.J Vanston, who have all helped her form her own unique musical style that encompasses both UK and US pop, blues, soul and ballads, all with a dash of Shannon's Bollywood allure.
