Shanna Waterstown was born in the Deep South. In Florida, USA to be exact. She grew up singing Gospel in a small Baptist church, at a time when the most popular music on the radio and in her household, was « Motown Soul », « Country » and « Gospel ». Her youth was tailored by many rich and different styles of music, and inspired her first creations and compositions at the age of 11 or 12. Shanna started a local group with some neighbors and experimented with recordings and cassette tapes back then.
She has toured in the US. and Europe in such countries as France, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Austria, Poland, Latvia etc… Including some of the major festivals like Blues festival Baden, Blues festival Basel, Jazz festival Ascona, Ecaussines Blues festival and many, many more.
While in Europe and rising in her career as a major American artist there, she has had the privilege of opening for James Brown, Buddy Guy, Maceo Parker, Matt Bianco, Louisiana Red, and Mud Morganfield, just to name a few.
Having spent many years writing and composing, Shanna put her own compositions in the light and she would write, compose, produce, and sing her very first Blues album « Inside My Blues » / « A Real Woman » in 2008 of all original songs.
After successfully touring with her first album, she has written and composed her second Blues album where we can once again find her particular writing style in her all original songs. Her second CD will be available very soon for all her fans and those that wish to discover her.
Passionate, inspired, professional, musically she is accepted as a real « Blueswoman ». Shanna is well on her way (as one of the youngest Blues Women of our decade) to conquering all the Blues fans in Europe and the US. Let yourselves be taken by a warm, sensual, powerful and authentic voice who is……….Shanna Waterstown !!
