For those of you who are first coming to the site - welcome - and for those of you returning - thanks for coming back! I'm Shannon Kennedy, an up and coming female saxophonist and vocalist located in Southern California. I play in the jazz, pop, classical and smooth jazz styles and I have been performing professionally since 2005.

As part of my career, I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to record and perform with artists like Peter White, 10,000 Maniacs, Craig Chaquico (Jefferson Starship), Greg Adams (Tower of Power), Kirk Whalum, Chieli Minucci, Nick Colionne and U-Nam.

As a solo artist I have released I have released five full albums and several singles including "Angel Eyes" (2005), "Steppin Up" (2007), "Never My Love" (2007), "Almost that Time of Year" (2009) and "Behind Your Eyes" (2012). In 2009 I began touring and performing with French guitarist, U-Nam, as a regular part of his band. I also recently appeared on his George Benson Tribute album "Weekend in L.A." as a flute player and saxophonist.

Even more recently, we've collaborated on a new project as Nivo Deux and we recently released our debut single "Love's No Distance" (2013).
