Shannon Saunders - New Waves
Today we’re introducing Shannon Saunders to the pages of Breaking More Waves. She’s another one of those new / not really so new artists, having already picked up 750,000 views of her video for her self-released song Heart Of Blue (we’re going to add a few more by streaming it below), which cost just £9 to make and reached number 48 on the iTunes chart, promoted mainly through the use of social media. Then earlier this year Shannon showed her development from Heart Of Blue as she uploaded the track Sheets to Soundcloud. Within a few days she found herself sitting pretty at number 1 on Hype Machine’s chart. So with Facebook, You Tube and the blogs covered, next stop for this Swindon based singer is (probably) everything outside of the internet, including the radio, and on the basis of new song Silly Little Things this seems like a very near certainty. It’s a thoroughly modern percussive pop tune about outgrowing a relationship, formed from slick studio production and a bass that will have you wiggling your butt until earthquakes are caused. A future pop star?
