Shannon Rebecca Saunders (born July 4, 1994) is an English singer-songwriter. In August 2014 Shannon's signed her label Lovejoy Records to Caroline International with a change in musical direction from acoustic to synth and keyboard dance produced music. Her first tastemaker track "Sheets" was described as relentlessly catchy pop with a house edge.
Shannon Saunders started a YouTube channel in 2009 posting covers of songs by many artists, as well as her own originals. As of April 25, 2015, she has over 61,000 subscribers and over 2.5 million total upload views.
Shannon Saunders' YouTube following quickly gained the attention of Kwame Kwaten from ATC Management. Shannon has written with writers/producers such as Dee Adam, Amy Wadge, Wilkinson, and Eg White. Shannon is currently releasing all of her music on her independent label Lovejoy Records.
Her first single "Heart Of Blue" was released on iTunes on 14 January 2013, following the high demand from her homemade music video, which went viral on the Sunday before, and received over 30,000 views in less than four days. As of August 2014, the song has had over 700,000 views.
Saunders released her second single "Scars" shortly afterwards, on 8 July 2013. She then went on to supporting both Lewis Watson and Lucy Spraggan on their UK tours, releasing her third single, "Atlas", in December.
On August 11, 2014, Saunders released "Sheets" from her upcoming debut album to represent her new pop/dance sound. It received attention from numerous high profile music blogs. The Line Of Best Fit stated "'Sheets' sounds like it could soon soundtrack nights out beyond the world of YouTube."
