Recently heard on MTV's The Real World: Cancun and The Real World: DC, NYC based and RI native piano player, singer/songwriter Shannon Corey truly reflects a beautiful new vibe of sensuous class. Having received the praises of fellow artists and critics alike, Shannon was named Keyboard Magazine's Unsigned Artist of the Month, High Times Magazine's Unsigned Artist of the Week and CD Reviews by You Pop Featured Artist. Her debut album 'Unsaid' was released in 2007 under Mother West Records, NYC, and ensured her an endorsement spot with Yamaha alongside artists such as Elton John and Michael Buble. "Assured and nuanced, Shannon's keyboard work speaks of both classical study and a great sensitivity to what any given songs needs rather than how many notes it can hold before exploding" - Keyboard Magazine. She recently released the EP 'Overdue' in September of 2009 where it was reviewed by Tony Deans of The Cheers Music as being "one the most emotional EP's of 2009" and landed her the title ARTIST TO WATCH by RI's Type 3 Media. With a solo album in the works, a southern tour booked in late June and more TV placements to be revealed, "Shannon Corey will be an artist we can watch for a long time to come" - Type 3 Media.
