Short Bio (for press)

Shannon GrahamToronto-based musician Shannon Graham has played many parts throughout her life: classical violist, jazz saxophonist, experimental composer, pop singer, and chamber-jazz concert producer. Throughout her career she aims to continue blurring the lines between musical genres and what is considered art and entertainment. She believes that good music can connect people by provoking empathy, insight, and catharsis.
