'A Million Miles' is the mature sound from new Co. Meath artist Shannon and her band. The debut EP is launched on Monday 12th March in Whelans!
The four track EP kicks off with the rocking title track which finds Shannon urging to be 'A Million Miles' away from a guy. The video for the track was recorded in Slane Castle and it works well with the fun nature of the song. Track two is 'I Can't Hide' which is a delightful love song. It conjures up the feeling of being away from a loved one very well and showcases Shannon's delicate vocals. 'Trouble' increases the tempo with some fine lyrics while the closing track 'Romeo' in many respects is my favourite track on the EP. 'Romeo' is all about Shannon's vocals with clever lyrics over a gentle guitar rift.
Listen to the title track here:
While this isn't the style of music that excites me I'm hugely impressed with Shannon's vocals. This EP is a great start to a fine career in the mainstream. A star for the future? More like a star in the now.
