Shannon Curfman – Guitarist and singer/songwriter Shannon Curfman burst upon the blues and roots rock scene in 1999 with quite a stir. After recording her major-label debut for Clive Davis and Arista Records, “Loud Guitars, Big Suspicions” climbed to the top of the Billboard Blues Charts and remained for nearly 5 years. Her exceptionally well-produced, well-sequenced debut album won her rave reviews all over the U.S, Canada, Europe and Asia, aside from tons of airplay, even on commercial radio stations in the U.S. Curfman made several U.S. club and theater tours in support of Loud Guitars, Big Suspicions, and garnered huge amounts of publicity. Recognized throughout the Blues community, Shannon has shared the stage with legends B.B. King, Buddy Guy, John Mellencamp, John Lee Hooker and Carlos Santana. Her music has been featured in several soundtracks including “Where the Heart Is” and “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants”, as well as HBO’s “The Sopranos”, “G String Divas” and the WB’s “Gilmore Girls” and “Gossip Girls.” She has also performed on national television programs such as David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Good Morning America and VH1’s Rock & Roll Record Breakers.
Now 24, Curfman is back with a new and even more mature album that shows she is the real-deal, proven artist that many knew she would be. “What You’re Getting Into” is Curfman’s new album recorded at Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis’ epic Flyte Tyme Studios in Minneapolis , MN . Special guests on the album include platinum-selling artist Joe Bonamassa playing and singing a duet with Shannon of a classic Eric Clapton song and multi-platinum artist Stevie D from Buckcherry on a cover of a song by Queen. This may be Shannon ‘s …best album yet! The album features seven brand new, original songs that Curfman co-wrote with writers from Aerosmith, Lenny Kravitz, Kid Rock, Ozzy Osbourne, Pink, Jonny Lang and Sheryl Crow and a cover of Oh Well by Fleetwood Mac that goes to show what a powerhouse Shannon really is. Between the superior “dirty-blues” songwriting, Curfman’s saucy and demanding vocals and her scorching lead guitar “What You’re Getting Into” is the album of 2010 not to be missed!
