GRAMMY / Emmy / Dove award-winning producer SHANNON SANDERS is many things. He's a talented producer. He's a profound songwriter. He's an amazing musician. He's a knock-your-socks-right-on-off singer. He’s currently a National Trustee of the Recording Academy. Yet if there is one word that could encapsulate all of his many gifts, it would have to be: CREATOR.
"To create is to cause something to exist," says SHANNON. "And when you create, you invest. When you invest, you invent. When you invent, you perform. When you perform, you evolve."
Such has been the case with songs that Shannon has had the privilege to create. Many of which have been with long-time collaborator Drew Ramsey. Masterpieces have been created with India.Arie (GRAMMY), Jonny Lang (GRAMMY), Robert Randolph (Emmy), Nicole C. Mullen (Dove), John Legend, Algebra Blessett, Leela James, Jonathan McReynolds, Heather Headley, Anthony David, Marc Broussard, Eric Benet, Laura Reed, Rissi Palmer and a host of others. Past, present and future.
Shannon has an authentic way of seeking out and connecting with the greatest parts of an individual and then presenting them to the world in a way that is real...inspiring…meaningful. "To me, being creative is also about being innovative," says SHANNON. "To produce is to bring forth. To be relevant is to continue to do so."
