Shannon Darcy is a singer and songwriter from Essex, who aims to bring a new and authentic vibe to the alternative rock and punk scene. Without a doubt she proves that with her debut single “Snakes and Ladders” that demands to be blasted through your hi-fi, demonstrating her love for gritty rock sounds and captivating lyrical dynamics.
With lyrics intended to convey raw attitude and meaning that encourages the sense of empowerment and belonging, sounding more like a recipe in protecting your energy from toxic people. Quoting Shannon “I wrote this song when I was feeling fed up with the way some people lie and cheat their way through life without a thought for anyone else. I felt frustrated by those whose toxic and manipulative energy strangulates its way into the lives of others”
Describing herself as a 'nerdy wannabe rockstar', she definitely has the ability to transport listeners back into the 90's rock era, merging both modern and classic alternative melodies together
Shannon discovered her talent aged 10 when holidaying at a holiday park. She entered a singing competition there, and despite it being the first time she had ever performed on stage in front of anyone she ended up winning the regional finals!
