Biography

The tale of Shannon Bourne is an interesting and evolving story. Free-thinking virtuoso guitarist, singer songwriter, producer, session musician, tutor and mentor.

With the release of his critically acclaimed second solo album DARK THINGS, Shannon has taken this greatest (and most artistically courageous) leap to-date to realise a personalised and intimate form of musical expression. Discover for yourself and check the video link and view a snatch of the astonishing performance at the 2009 Port Fairy Festival Guitar Zone concert. Sharing the stage that day was Grammy award-winning V.M. Bhatt, who took time out personally express his appreciation of Shannon’s playing.

The spotlight of attention really started to move Shannon’s way when he was picked up as personal guitar-slinger to blues legend, Chris Wilson. The young Bourne learnt his performance craft in the boot camp of countless gigs, TV appearances and festivals with the in-demand Wilson, both in here and overseas. Bonus nights (and there were many), would be on those occasions where the bill was shared playing with the likes of Richard Thompson – a personal favourite and influence on Shannon. All this experience and the recording of two albums with Chris, whetted the appetite of the guitarist to go out and do his own thing – in 2005 BURN IT DOWN was released
