Everything Happens For A Reason Q&A with SHANNON QUINN
Where are you located now and where are you originally from?
I moved to Nashville, TN in June 2019 but I am originally from a small town in Pennsylvania called Saint Thomas. Who has been your greatest influence? When I first really started getting into music and writing, I was super inspired by Taylor Swift, like low key obsessive fangirl. She remained one of my major influences all through high school, when all the boy drama started, I just really related to her writing. I also really look up to Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire. Their work ethic is amazing and especially how Dolly came from literally nothing and made a name for herself, and she always remained true to herself, something I also want to make sure I do. It really shows me that if I work hard enough, I can make a name of myself without the resources some artists were blessed with. What is your latest and greatest? Right now, I have four singles out on all streaming platforms which is so cool. Sometimes I "forget" I have songs out and I'll be in my car driving to usually Dunkin' or the gym (weird combo, I know) and one of my songs will come on and I'll be like "oh yeah, I did that, I have songs out". What are you most looking forward to in 2021? Booking more gigs and the release of my EP! I just recently got the lap steel tracks and wow, it's just making it feel so real that I'm going to have an EP out in the Spring of 2021, I am extremely excited. What would you say to your younger self if you could? I would definitely tell her that everything happens for a reason, and there are ALWAYS bigger things happen behind the scenes. What may seem or feel like the end of the world, definitely isn't. There is a bigger plan going on, and everything always works out. On a scale from ONE to TEN, how driven are you? On a good day, a solid 10, on a "bad" day more like an 8. How much do you believe LUCK plays a role in success? I do believe that if you work hard enough, luck will find its way into your life. It's all about meeting the right people, people who believe in you and will not scam you, or use your gifts for just their benefit. This is something that I've found difficult to find in this industry, but as long as you remain true to yourself and your morals, I do believe that luck will find you. How can we stay up to date with you?
