Even at 9 years old, Shannon Selig had a charisma that made few doubt her when she said “I just want to change people’s lives with my voice.”
Fast forward a decade and half later and Selig has done a good job reaching her goal in the two places she called home: Maine and Nova Scotia. With dual citizenship to her credit, Selig sang her way across the continent, making fans on both sides of the border.
Winner of the New England Country Music Association Songwriter of the Year in 2013 and 2012, Selig also won the North American Country Music Association award for Horizon Songwriter both years. Selig also was named New England Country Music Association Female Vocalist of the Year in 2011, and, the next year, claimed the win for Horizon Female Vocalist Award 2012 Internationally.
Selig calls a new city home now. In 2012, the country singer/songwriter relocated to Nashville, ready to walk the talk she had proclaimed since her childhood.
In less than one month, Selig will release Perfectly Imperfect. After choosing the songs, the Berklee College of Music alumna gathered a lineup of first call musicians to record the final project at Catch This Music Studios, owned by Eddie Robba. Mike Stankiewicz engineered the album, with Music Row veteran Gary Sadker of Red Ridge Entertainment, producing.
With an album in-hand and a lineup of tour dates, Selig sets out on the next phase of her career with a message that remains unchanged: "I just want to change people's lives with my voice."
