The Durham Herald-Sun calls Shana, “An absolute stunner,” and says, “Her original gumbo of jazz, folk and R&B evokes the spirit of Bill Withers and Esperanza Spalding.”

Shana’s style and sound are influenced by her jazz and classical roots, which she deftly weaves with the pop music, movie soundtracks and world music of the 80s and 90s. For the past 5 years, Shana has balanced her theatre, club and festival performances with her role as featured cellist/vocalist in Cirque du Soleil’s KÀ at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. In 2017 she returned to her full-time touring and recording schedule.

Carrie Newcomer

Carrie NewcomerSinger-songwriter and recording artist Carrie Newcomer has been described as a ”soaring songstress” by Billboard and a “prairie mystic” by the Boston Globe. The Austin Statesman described her as having “a voice as rich as Godiva chocolate,” and Rolling Stone once said, she “asks all the right questions.”  Most simply put, the Dallas Morning News said, “she’s the kind of artist whose music makes you stop, think and then say, ‘that is so true.’”

She was listed as one of the “50 most influential folk musicians of the past 50 years” by Chicago’s WFMT, and Boston’s WBEZ listed her as one of the most influential folk artists of the last 25 years. She has toured with Alison Krauss, and Nickel Creek recorded Newcomer’s song “I Should’ve Known Better” on their Grammy-winning album This Side.
