Shona McNeill

Professional Singer-Songwriter

“Music is more than an emotion, it’s a feeling; and I want you to feel me. With every word I sing, every slap on the cajon, note played on the bass, and strum of the guitar strings, I want you to be so in sync with me, that you feel like I am you, and you are me.”

Biography

It has no fear or limits, and its presence is as universal as a smile. It’s the feeling of sitting on the edge of your chair listening to your favorite song, while trying hard not to reach for the repeat button before it ends. Being hung on every word, melody, and hook that is sold to you because you feel it to be no other way, now that’s music!
