Album Notes
You don’t know her yet, but you will eventually. Born Shana Mari Montanez, to a Puerto Rican father in inner city Chicago and an Austrian, French, Irish mother, Shana since birth has had a magnetic contact to the stage. Venturing westward alone, Shana left the comforts of home to pursue her dreams in the entertainment Mecca of the world, Los Angeles. Mission accomplished. In just 2 short years Shana already partnered herself with Jay Records Artist, "Baby Bash", singing hooks featured on his European album. She appeared on the second season of the WB’s, Popstars, as a finalist in the round of 20 in Los Angeles, after being chosen as 1 of only 2 out of 3,000 initial Chicago contestants. In September of 2004, Shana opened for a Pre-Latin Grammy Concert hosted by Grammy Award Winning Recording Artist, Juanes, at the Avalon in Hollywood, where she performed all original music. But this wasn’t her first stint with Grammy caliber artists; in 2000 she toured as a backup dancer with Avant during a year long United States circuit. The troop joined forces with Grammy Award Winning Artist, Mary J. Blige, and Jagged Edge for a little over a month as part of the sold out and highly anticipated Mary Tour. In addition, she was part of both the LA and Chicago ensembles of “Latinologues,” a one of a kind production from the mind of Rick Najera (Mad TV, In Living Color) most recently on Broadway. Currently, Shana has two national commercials running in Spanish and English, one a Verizon spot and the other for Mcdonald’s. She is both a SAG and AFTRA member, and was 1 of 17 Latin Thespians to participate in the CBS Latino Showcase in Hollywood out of 800 total invitees. As a debutante, she began her formal dance training at the age of 5. At age 11, she employed her first Talent Agent, after participating in a Summer Theatre arts camp. Soon after, Shana became a member of a Nike sponsored Worldwide Hip Hop Dance Company. She attended performing arts high school in the Lincoln Park area of Chicago and later completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Theater at Columbia in Chicago, all while balancing a full time dance scholarship at Joel Hall Dance Academy. During this time she landed her first stint on an Equity stage with the production of “Zoot Suit”, at the world famed Goodman Theater. Having movie placement with 2 of her songs, Shana is also working with the California Health Council, writing/recording a song to be used for their "Teen Awareness" campaign. Most recently, Shana finished shooting Feature film, "Uncharted" in Mexico, playing lead Laine Wells, a documentarian whose plane crashes in the Gulf of Mexico with her crew and is the sole survivor. Producer and co star on the film is ER’S Demetrius Navarro.

Love the song... Never Leave
The album is great, wish she had the original version of Never Leave on the CD. Keep doing what your doing. More advertising and marketing can help get you out there to a bigger market. Love this CD, thanks for the kick ass music Shana! Nothing like supporting Chicago Artists!

very good....
