Bio:

Shannon was Born and raised in the small town of Hazel Green, KY, and grew up with a great appreciation of music. Feeling an urgency to serve his country after Desert Storm, he joined the United States Navy in July of 1994 and trained as a Fleet Marine Force Hospital Corpsman at Camp Pendleton, CA. He served as Corpsman in two combat deployments in Iraq: the first in 2003 and again in 2004 during Vigilant Resolve. To help relieve the stresses of combat and deployment felt by both him and others in his unit, Shannon would play guitar and sing during down time…and most importantly, began to write his own music about how he and his brothers felt about their experiences.

 

In 2010, Shannon retired as a Petty Officer First Class with seventeen years of service due to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI). He is working on a complete collection of original songs reflecting his time in combat, injuries (both physical and emotional), and living with the aftermath of war. Shannon hopes his music will help to educate military families and civilians, as well as help to heal those that have shared in some of the same experiences. Shannon believes it is now time for him to write a new chapter of his story: One that involves God, family, hope, happiness, healing, respect, love, and music.
