MUSIC FEATURED ARTIST :: HELEN SHANAHAN
Local Perth musician, singer, songwriter, artist & performer Helen Shanahan has released her latest musical storytelling offering “Avalanche”.
We have had the pleasure of seeing, hearing experiencing a couple of shows with Helen Shanahan who is a very talented WA risingstar. Another quality student product of WAPA West Australian Performimg Arts, Helen has done it the normal way of just hard work ethic for several years giging at local cafes, venues, festivals, special appearances & launches. These have been small, medium & large audiences with the regular publicity & promotions. But in a little place like Perth it can be tough going to create any momentum. Helen continues to proudly present her original independent music building a body of work which she has home made. In doing this she enetred the WAMI song competition which she won “Song of the Year” with WA Music Industry [WAMI]. One of the dozen recipents in her genre of music category ‘Folk’ as a just reward & acknowledgent of her efforts.
Shanahan has developed her own personal sound which is outstanding with a national, international sounding flavour. With such a humble, modest disposition when meeting in person, this comes across in her heartfelt near fragile feel when performing. Her vocals are beautiful with a perfect pitch & control that is heavenly. A theme of purity, honesty, integrity, love of life with interpretations of hope runs through Hele’s work. A sense of belonging, belief in good things, reflection of times gone by all caputure in a scincerity that is expressed through her music which is in guitar & vocals. Full clarity of a chosen design to her sound which is very good in deed. With this latest offering we wish her all the best in a ‘Banger’ to get her career into gear travelling the country & also world wide. To be recognised as an new found Australian [West Aussie] artist who has done her apprenticeship & is due to reap the rewards of her musical offerings.
So keep an ear & eye out for this talented lady as she makes her way on the music pathway. Maybe one would hope the yellow brick road in the land of musical Oz. We at sunsetcoast.life are loving this latest track as one of the sounds for Christmas 2018 & New Year 2019.
