Shannon Graham and The Storytellers
Details: Shannon Graham is a composer/saxophonist/singer/violist. Her music blends elements of classical, jazz, and pop to create a style that is expressive, honest, and at times quite odd. She is pleased to have had her music described as “art for those who want art and entertainment for those who want entertainment”. Shannon performs with her ten-person band Shannon Graham and The Storytellers. As storytellers they do just what their name suggests; perform programmatic music to express narratives ranging from personal tales of heartache and growing pains, to settings of texts from acclaimed writers. Shannon is an Artistic Producer with Spectrum Music, an organization dedicated to presenting concerts that feature Toronto’s emerging chamber jazz movement, she holds a Bachelors of Music in Jazz Performance from the University of Toronto and she currently studies composition with Roger Bergs.
