Shannon LaBrie brings life to insightful stories of a woman who remains true to herself in a life where only uncertainty is certain.
“Raining Hallelujah” is a timely song about resilience. Jonathan Frahm with For Folk Sake calls it “a reminder that kindness and healing is just around the bend".
Written alongside Tia Sillers (Lee Ann Womack, The Dixie Chicks, Trisha Yearwood), the two talented wordsmiths created a song with an optimistic view when looking for a light at the end of the tunnel. “Above every storm is a cloudless sky waiting for you and me,” LaBrie sings as she is supported by a choir of soulful singers echoing her ambitious call.
She grew up on a farm near Lincoln, Nebraska and attributes her career start to her Dad, who passed away when she was just thirteen. “He taught me my first guitar chords and when he passed away, songwriting became my way of grieving and dealing with the pain.”
LaBrie’s captivating voice and musicianship have been described as “nothing short of breathtaking” by American Songwriter on her latest album "Building". The record received wide critical acclaim with NPR adding her heroic anthem “Firewalker” to their Top 20 of 2020.
