Shannon Janssen's second album Piano Paintings features delicate swaying keyboard originals, light melodic variations that she plays with imagination and grace. Performing Songwriter, Jan/Feb 2004 Janssen could prove to be one of the better artists in the adult contemporary instrumental new age music genre in the coming decade. Wind and Wire, Jan 2003Iowa-based Shannon Janssen has burst onto the instrumental scene with grace and style. Instrumental Weekly, Oct 2002 Piano Paintings is exactly what it advertises to be. Janssen paints a musical landscape that offers a group of tracks that come from the heart of a woman with a direct connection to heaven. Music Dish, Oct 2002 Heart Journey is Shannon Janssen's debut CD and what a promising debut it is! Her 12 original compositions are full of life and emotion. Shannon is a wonderfully expressive pianist/composer, Heart Journey is a CD I highly recommend. Solo Piano Publications, Oct 2002Her music comes flowing from her heart to her hands, then to the keys of the piano in one magical transfer of divinity. Music Dish, March 2002Born and raised in eastern Iowa, Pianist and Composer Shannon Janssen began playing a small electric organ when she was very young. Formal lessons began at an early age and continued through high school. She then studied piano with a passionate pursuit that led her through the years. She was a church pianist for 20 years and taught private piano lessons for 12 years. She currently performs for Von Maur department stores, the Cedar Rapids Marriott, for private and company parties, receptions, special events as well as concerts of her original music. In recent years she began writing her compositions down in sheet music form. It is her desire in the future to have her music available in song books for students, teachers and anyone who enjoys playing piano. Shannon is currently working on her next CD.
