Country of origin:
Type of music generally:
Marks on My Heart, Shannon's first CD, was released in 1999.
Shannon is a little like a cross between Judy Collins and Sarah McLachlan
All Shannon's songs are original.
Every now and then you come across a CD that's simply pleasurable to listen to. Not "fierce," not "intellectual and thought-provoking," not "complex and engrossing." But simply nice, pleasing and enjoyable. Music you put on when you're in the mood to listen to something just plain good. This isn't to say that "Marks on My Heart," doesn't touch your heart—that it does—but Shannon Karen's CD is, more than anything else, a delightful album to put on the stereo. Listening to the songs for a second or third time (something you'll want to with this CD) creates a certain level of comfort, as the songs take on a satisfying familiarity.
Recommended first album:
Marks on My Heart is her debut
Marks on My Heart (1999)
Smooth and pleasant: recommended.
Shannon Karen and Guy Thomas—all music and production
"Marks on My Heart" is Shannon Karen's only CD to date.
