about shannon whitworth
With songs steeped in southern elegance, Shannon Whitworth's impact in the world of Americana music over the past several years has created lofty expectation by fans nationwide. With her debut solo release, she reminds us that innocence has No Expectations. So pure, strong and heartfelt, she catches the ears and touches the hearts of even the most unsuspecting bystander.
Shannon's musical background begins with picking circles in the back of a Vacuum Repair Shop in Boone, NC with men twice her age. Whitworth made her mark with her captivating voice and definitive songs as a founding member of The Biscuit Burners. On her former band's 2004 release, Shannon's ballad, 'Come On Darlin' was chosen as the IPOD Hotpick Bluegrass song of the year of 2004, while the album was chosen in the Top 10 Bluegrass Albums of the Year by the Chicago Tribune. National touring and exposure created an international fan base, and now her fans, and fans of southern roots music, can enjoy the heartfelt innocence of No Expectations.
"I'm so glad to hear her out on her own now with No Expectations, and glad she's continuing with that great bridge sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s forged between bluegrass and Americana. Her sound should definitely be considered one of the definitive sounds of the mountains of Western North Carolina." - Martin Anderson, WNCW
