Shannon is the mononymous stage name of Shannon B. Burchett, a 16 year old singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Dallas, Texas. The talented young artist debuted earlier this year with a string of singles which included some cover songs and his original single, “Do You Know.” Despite his young age and recent arrival on the scene, Shannon is making a huge impact with Pop fans around the world.
Making his mark on social media, the singer’s most recent release racked up 1.3 million Facebook views and 164,000 Likes. He has connected with fans in North America, Latin America, Asia, and Europe. Of course, it’s not just a numbers game. The driving force behind these impressive stats is Shannon’s remarkable talent. His new single is an excellent showcase for the artist’s broad range of skills as a songwriter, singer and multifaceted musician.
“Do You Know” is a smooth R&B/Pop slow jam. Over a chill downtempo Hip-hop beat the singer delivers a soulful, laidback lead vocal with a maturity of style and technique that defies his young age. Tasteful backing harmonies add to the mellow mood. Shannon’s skills on guitar and keys are equally impressive. A bed of ambient synths set the mood and give his voice and guitar space to shine.
Throughout the track he peppers the mix with some really slick Jazz guitar. Both the performance and tone are perfect fit to this cool slow groove. In the bridge section of the song Shannon breaks the mix down to his acoustic guitar and that sweet electric lead. It’s a great sound and a really beautiful song from an exceptionally talented young artist.
