"Shannon performed for my parents surprise 50th anniversary party. She was professional from the start. She requested a schedule of the event including when guests would arrive, what time they would be eating, and when they would be leaving. She asked for certain songs my parents might enjoy and collaborated a song list which included my suggestions. She put together a beautiful performance! She engage some of the guests in singing and dancing, and provided background music while the guests enjoyed their meal. She included a cake cutting ceremony complete with their wedding song. Her voice is beautiful and angelic! The guests truly enjoyed her and spoke about it for weeks after the event. Hiring Shannon was the best decision I made and I would truly recommend her for any entertainment event."

“Shannon Rae is a consummate vocalist in the studio. A total professional who gives her all to every performance. Her warm persona comes through in her singing and her beautiful tone never wavers no matter what range she's executing. She's real easy to work with; takes direction very well. I dig recording with her.
"Shannon is a truly gifted singer and musical mentor. I look for every opportunity to work with her. "
Your voice inspires chills down my spine. Your timbre, pitch and sense of timing and dynamics are exquisite, pure, and come so naturally to you. You are comfortable with the recording process and know what you can get out of it. You have a mature, beautiful tone in your rich alto range, and the high notes are confident, strong and right on.
Thank you for this wonderful gift. Your baby will have the dear privilege of hearing you sing.
Over the years (20+) that Sound Mechanix / Media Mechanix has been in business, we've gotten a LOT of demo tapes!! I have to say that Shannon is the ONLY one that we 'hunted down'. I said to my partner Joey, "Hey!, we've got to find this girl!" (For some reason her information on the tape had been lost). Anyway...,we found her, and I'm very glad we did.! Shannon, is a world-class talent, but more importantly, is a 'world-class person'!

"It is a pleasure and inspiration to hear Shannon sing!"
"A beautiful woman with a beautiful voice. A real gem in the biz & total pro. 'MaddenRae,' her former original project, is one of my favorite CDs, and with her experience on stage & in the studio there's nothing Shannon Rae can't do!"
"She sings like a rainbow, sweeping through all sorts of colorful shades, yet with a personality all the more pleasant."
Shannon Rae's voice possesses warmth, sincerity, and a soulfulness that really hits home with every phrase that she delivers. I absolutely love her voice. Her performance of "Captured" is nothing less than brilliant. I believe that song is the perfect marriage of a heavenly voice and a beautiful ballad. She gets deep inside the lyric, puts her stamp on it, and makes it her own. She is a real pro, who is totally prepared once she steps behind the microphone. I look forward to the possibility of working together again in the future. Shannon, you're the best.
