A duo comprised of Shan Kowert & Annie Acton. They formed in 2005 and in 2007 they released their debut cd, “Water Over Stones”, produced by John M. Greenberg, which earned them a nomination for Vocal Duo at the 2008 Texas Music Awards. In 2011 they released their second cd, “The Station” produced by John Inmon, which won ShAnnie “Vocal Duo of the Year” and John Inmon “Producer of the Year”. ShAnnie said they were “humbled and honored in knowing that their “passion” is getting such positive feedback”.
“Eclectic Americana Pop Folk with Celtic and Spanish undertones”… that’s what some are saying about the music of ShAnnie. Their voices are clean and soothing but with much fervor, and the music is beautifully accompanied by a 6 or 12 string acoustic guitar or piano. ShAnnie’s music is soulful, lyrical and mesmerizing. Annie will captivate you with her dramatic visual performance. It’s been said by many that when “Annie sings, you believe.” Shan, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist; crosspicks the guitar strings or moves across the piano keys enthusiastically enhancing every song. Whether it is Annie or Shan taking the vocal lead, the other voice is floating around in harmony. It is a fact… the chemistry of these two people will not only lure you in, but keep you wanting more.
