Lots of great albums are out here at AK today and one of them is Shannon Stephens' tenth anniversary re-press of her self-titled debut from 2000. Featuring the ten original songs and two previously unreleased bonus tracks, her debut is something we'd be just as likely to release brand new in 2010 as in 2000. You can buy the CD for $10 + S&H by clicking here.

Yes, it is still winter; this much is true. Still, if there's a category music that's perfect for getting through the cold and gray, the music of Shannon Stephens falls into that category.

Shannon Stephens’ long-awaited second album, The Breadwinner, is almost here. You can preorder it now by clicking here, or wait and purchase it when it hits your local record store on September 8th. To celebrate the release and her triumphant return to musicdom after a 10 year hiatus, Shannon will play at a CD release party on August 29th at Shadowland Restaurant and Bar in West Seattle, WA. The party is free and starts at 8pm. Special guest The Marrying Type will also be performing.
The Breadwinner will also be available to purchase at the show, a whole week and a half before its official release. If you can’t make it out, the show will be streamed live on Shadowland’s website right here. And speaking of streaming, two days prior to the release party, Shannon will be featured live on Seattle’s KBCS’ "Lunch With Folks" at 1pm (91.3 FM). Listen live on their website here!

This is a rare event! The last time Shannon Stephens played in front of a live audience was seven years ago!
But if you live in Seattle, you can catch her this rare event on Friday night (the 25th) at the Shafer-Baillie Mansion at 7:30pm as she opens for Jason Herrod. Admission is Radiohead-style; pay what you can at the door (aka "strongly suggested donations").
