Born and raised in Olathe, KS, Shawna started honoring her craft at a young age. Music was somewhat in the background for her growing up, but it wasn’t until she attended college that she and everyone else around her realized my talent was more than a hobby.
Shawna started making and writing music when she was in my second year of college. She loved to sing so decide to start writing music. She took every chance she could get to perform, including singing karaoke and doing talent shows at college where she won 1st place for singing Take Me To the King by Tamela Mann. In her musical journey, she has traveled long distances to tryout for the popular talent shows, The Voice, America’s Got Talent, and American Idol.
Her early inspirations were legendary R&B singers Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. As Shawna started singing covers and writing her own songs, her inspirations are now the artists H.E.R., Chris Brown, Post Malone and still Whitney Houston. She would love to collaborate with Jhene Aiko, Chris Brown, Kelly Clarkson and Lecrae.
What she likes most about the music industry is the energy that derives from music and visuals as well as how other people’s music can inspire different ideas.Shawna aims to send out positive notes and good vibes through her music. Her messages through her music include her experiences with dealing with relationships, love, the world and life in general and never giving up on dreams.
Besides being a music artist, Shawna is an outgoing and fun individual. She enjoys traveling, working-out, dancing, and being family-oriented.
