Biography

Shawna Russell is an American Country music singer/songwriter who was born in Holdenville, Oklahoma and currently resides in Okemah, OK. Her musical influences include Stevie Nicks, Linda Ronstadt, Juice Newton, and Tom Petty, among others.

Shawna first sang in public at age 7. At 13, she and her dad, Keith, formed a country band that played for clubs and Elks Lodges on weekends. At 17, she joined her Uncle Tim’s band, which was already a successful regional band on the “A” club circuit across the Southwest. She honed her remarkable vocal chops and added acoustic rhythm, electric slide, and lead guitar to her arsenal while touring across much of the U.S., performing 2-6 nights a week at many of America’s top live music clubs, including The Grizzly Rose; Billy Bob’s; and the Wildhorse Saloon. Before striking out on a solo career in 2007, she spent three years fronting and playing guitar in fellow Oklahoman Ty England’s band, which included a USO Tour of Korea in 2005.

Shawna released her self-titled sophomore album on June 7, 2011, on Way Out West Records. Recorded in Nashville and Oklahoma City, and co-produced by Julian King (Grammy-winning engineer for Faith Hill, Tim McGraw and Toby Keith), along with Clif Doyal & Tim Russell, the album reflects Shawna’s growth as an artist and a maturity of her song crafting skills. Shawna wrote - or co-wrote - the 10 songs on the project and they provide the listener with a deeper personal connection to her varied influences and artistic expression.
