Bio


Shannon Stephens is a Seattle-based singer/songwriter. She began her career in 1993 as the voice of the Michigan folk-rock band Marzuki, co-led by Sufjan Stevens. When Marzuki disbanded, Stephens moved to Seattle and embarked on a solo career. Shortly after the release of her debut LP, she lost her taste for the business side of musicianship and retreated, spending the next eight years focusing on home, family, and the pleasures of an abundant garden. Those years of domesticity gave rise to 2009’s The Breadwinner – an album described by Exclaim! as “intensely relevant, lyrically incisive and richly deserving of your attention.”
