Shannon’s more than 30-year career has taken him from his hometown of Akron, Ohio to Los Angeles and back again. After leaving home at 19 to attend the Guitar Institute of Hollywood, Shannon found himself playing with now legendary West Coast bands such as the Rave-Ups, in the roots rock and early Americana/alt-country scene that included Lone Justice, Dwight Yoakam, Lucinda Williams, The Blasters, Kimm Rogers and the Beat Farmers. Back in Ohio, he brought his extensive musical expertise to the bands The TopKats, the Midlife Chryslers, and most notably, northeastern Ohio legend Michael Stanley’s backing group The Resonators.
