Shanna in a Dress is your quirky best friend who refuses to wear pants. A fun combination of humor, truth, and poignancy all wrapped up in a sweet voice, this witty wordsmith calls what she does "snarky folk pop from a clever millennial who sucks at dating." She has been performing since her days at the University of Virginia where she attracted a loyal following of fans that loved her feel-good energy, catchy melodies, and entertainingly interactive stage banter.
Shanna is a diverse songwriter with a playful setlist that manages to teeter the line masterfully of taking on complex subject matters with smart, yet accessible lyrics. Her songs are laden with clever wordplay and are relatable across all ages as she hops back and forth between the guitar, ukulele, and piano to accompany herself.
Shanna in a Dress released her first EP More Than Just a Hoar in 2012 after a successful Kickstarter campaign. She successfully crowdfunded in June 2018 and her next set of recordings is currently in production. Her style is often compared to Ingrid Michaelson, Colbie Caillat and Jason Mraz. Shanna hosts a monthly showcase called Women in Song in Boulder, CO and tours locally and internationally.
