Bio

Shawnee hits you hard using her voice as fire power that shoots clear strength and soul right at you and like the meaning of her name, her vocal ability is dangerously beautiful.

Shawnee’s music is an eclectic sound of many vibes. Her punchy rock soul and country roots play their part while her catchy melody’s and lyrical stories pitch in. Refusing to be labeled “I create music in the moment and write from my heart, It’s the only way for me to love what I do”

Shawnee is an award winning performer and watching her live performance becomes apparent why she is a natural born entertainer. Beyond her intoxicating vocal ability, her engaging energy and passion is a true experience in itself. She leads with her heart and it is infectious.

Canadian aboriginal (Mohawk) was born in Welland, Ontario. Her mother published author Lynne Sherry Mclean and father Tim Talbot and two siblings. Shawnee grew up with music in the house she played her father’s guitar her brothers piano and listened to Melissa Etheridge until she discovered music was in her blood and bones. Shawnee spent her early childhood years different from other kids. Outside of school she spent writing lyrics, playing instruments writing songs and imagining a life as a professional singer. At the age of 10 life hit hard when Shawnee’s father passed away and her first feeling of ultimate pain set in. A few years later she was discovered and started her first job performing as a Shania Twain impersonator until the age of 15. Growing up as a teenager was a struggle and Shawnee rebelled in ways wanting more from life. She spent most nights in the local bar scene performing ACDC and Led Zeppelin in a rock band. After finishing high school she worked during the days and music nights she saved up enough money and left the small town life behind and headed to Toronto to make music her life.

It did not take long before Toronto agreed with Shawnee and her talent and she was embraced as a songwriter, performer and vocalist. At the head of her career she dominated the music business “I learned to love the business as much as the music because without one there is no other” She appeared on Canadian Idol performed across Canada with Roxette and Glass Tiger she was named Toronto’s performer and vocalist of the year and appeared vocally on the hit Disney TV show (The Next Step) In 2013 she was supported by Much Fact for her single Mirror Me and the video was added to Much Music.

She spent the summer of 2013 on her This is Me Tour in USA and Canada where during the NYC Pride performance she shared the stage with Lady Gaga.

Shawnee is now working with Juno award winning producer Tim Thorney.
