THIS IS ME
Growing up in the St. Louis area, Shauna developed a rock n roll heart early on. Her family home was always filled with music, especially the oldies her mom loved. Over the years she developed a passion for all musical eras, genres & styles. Her background includes that of church musician, cantor, choir director, lyricist, soloist, lead rock and r&b vocalist, and cabaret performer.
From 2000 to 2008 she belted out rock, r&b and pop songs with several area cover bands. In 2004, she formed the popular cocktail/cabaret duo, Blush with bandmate & pianist/arranger Lisa Tuttle . In 2010, they celebrated the end of their six-year run with their critically acclaimed sell-out cabaret show, At First Blush at the Kranzberg Performing Arts Center in St. Louis.
As an alum of Cabaret Masters Workshops in St. Louis, Chicago, New York, and Mykonos, Greece, she has worked with such notable artists as Lina Koutrakos, Rick Jensen, Liz Callaway, Sally Mayes, Beckie Menzie, Jason Graae, Andrea Marcovicci, & Alex Rybec. From 2011 to 2013 she and St. Louis guitarist Mike Krysl formed the acoustic duo Krysl & Sconce.
In 2011 Shauna released her debut CD, Fall Back Into Love - fresh interpretations of rock, pop and Motown favorites and two original songs by Lina Koutrakos & Rick Jensen. Shauna celebrated her birthday on September 30, 2011 with a sell-out CD Release Concert at the Kranzberg Center for Performing Arts for which she received rave reviews. The CD is heard on Jango Radio where fans from all over the world have given her an enthusiastic "thumbs up"!
Now a resident of Belleair, Florida, Shauna is grateful to be a full time musician. Most week days she can be found entertaining residents of Memory Care & Assisted Living Facilities. At night and on weekends she is a cabaret artist, soloist, and appears with rock guitarist Peter Grace. She lives with her husband/roadie/manager Clyde and their two spoiled-rotten cats, Prince Maui and Cabo Wabo. The boys unfortunately have no opposable thumbs which renders them pretty much useless when it comes to hauling equipment, but they quietly lend their moral support just the same.
