Song a Week

Posted on September 3, 2014
Well, I'm a few songs behind my "song a week" goal, I'm afraid! Things were going swimmingly until the summer which was interrupted by a trip to Spain and Portugal, my sister's wedding, my daughter's wedding, 4 house guests for 2 weeks, 2 gigs, a trip to Salt Spring Island and Galiano, a house party (my house) and a friend's wedding! Not to mention work! So, I guess I've got a good excuse. I'm about 6 songs behind - although, they are partially written. I'll try to use September to catch up.  
On another note, The Promise, which was my first "song a week" song, debuted at my daughter, Siobhan's wedding to Garrett Holborn. It was a beautiful wedding and the song received a lot of praise. I'm very exciting about recording it so all of you can hear it!

Tree House Cafe - Salt Spring Island

Colin Rankin and I had a great time showcasing my new material at the Tree House. Salt Spring Island is full of music appreciators and they received us well. We are staying at a gorgeous spot called the Wetherly Inn - highly recommended it you get a chance to come to this funky little island!

Don Biggar

Very sad to report that our bass player, Don Biggar, was in a motorcycle accident in California that left him with a number of broken bones! Don will likely be out of commission for many weeks. Join us in wishing him a speedy recovery!

Song a Week Goal

Posted on July 5, 2014
So, on my last birthday, March 22nd, I made a pact with myself to write a song a week for the next year. I allowed myself a few weeks off for times when I'm vacationing out of country (with no access to keys or guitar). Proud to report that I now have 10 new songs! It has been quite a process. One thing that I have come to recognize is that the quality of the songs you write when you are "inspired" versus when you force yourself to sit down and create - is about the same. I will be featuring these songs shortly on the site and FB/Youtube.  The first song I wrote is called "The Promise" and I wrote it or my daughter, Siobhan, and her fiancé who will be married on August 16th, 2014. The Promise will debut at that event and then I will release it for all to hear. Stay tuned!

Inglewood

Posted on January 12, 2014
We have picked a name for the band. It's such a hard thing to do as all the great names seem to be taken and it is just so difficult to find something that is suitable. Anyway, for better or worse the band will now be known as Shannon Lee and Inglewood.
