I've been waiting for Shanna to release a cd since she first Friend Requested me on Myspace almost, if not two years ago. It was love at first listen, tho I can't remember the name of the first song I actually heard by her. She rotates through a lot on her page. I do know it was enough to peak my interest-which is pretty hard to do. The one that I always go back to is "Obvious". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WE7wbzFbHbw
I love this song!!! LOVE IT! So well written and sung beautifully. This girl can blow!, let me tell you. Here's my one gripe however...I prefer her R&B version of the song, but it seems she's gravitating towards a more Pop-Country sound by her revised version. I have to admit I worry about her taking her music to this genre. I understand if she wants to grab the tweens and teens, but we've already got a Britney and Jessica. Why try to put out a sound so currently Jessica Simpson-esque knowing that her music currently is going nowhere???
She also has a song called "Love and Misery"- that I've deemed my theme song- that's so hot I really feel it's got chart topping potential...if left the way it is (not the way it is on her Atlantic Records page. A much better version was on her Myspace). It's got that Christina Aguliera "Fighter" edge with "in your face" lyrics. So up my alley! If you love A7X like I do you've already heard her laying down back up vocals on "Dear God". She's definitely worth checking out. If you too become a super fan you can purchase her latest "Waking Up to Love" on iTunes. Support her people. With the right guidance she's going to be huge..HUGE!
