ABOUT THE ARTIST
Just Be Honest debuted in the Top Ten of iTunes’ Singer/Songwriter chart in February 2013. Labrie stares down her demons on the retro-R&B album opener “Secret” while the album’s title track is a lush, rich plea for truth that would fit alongside a playlist that includes Carole King and Norah Jones. The bluesy, infectious “Love Somebody” is a startlingly optimistic and forgiving response to a lover who’s been honest enough to own up to an indiscretion, but on the sparse, poetic “Slow Dance” she warns: “If you’re looking for fast/I’m not your girl/I was built to last/Just so you know/I love like a slow dance.”
Born in Lincoln, Nebraska, Shannon began writing classical piano pieces as a child. She learned guitar from her father, a gifted, self-taught musician who died of cancer when she was only 14. Her music has already been heard in “One Tree Hill” and in an NBC promotional campaign. M Music And Musicians Magazine hailed Labrie as an artist to watch in a “Who’s Next” feature. She was recently featured alongside Brooke Waggoner, Matthew Perryman Jones, Katie Herzig, Mindy Smith and other artists on the Nashville Indie Spotlight, a digital sampler available exclusively on iTunes.
