Shannon Barnett (2007 Young Australian Jazz Artist of the Year) is well-known to Australian audiences through her work with The Vampires, The Black Arm Band, The Bamboos, Andrea Keller, Circus Oz and her own quartet, with whom she released her debut album Country on the Which Way Music label in 2010.
Since 2014, she has been based in Cologne, Germany, where she performs as a regular member and soloist with the WDR Big Band as well as with her own quartet. Shannon’s compositions feature space for the development and sharing of ideas, as well revealing a wicked sense of humour. Communication, intuition and playful curiosity are the foundations of their musical approach. Shannon’s Quartet has performed widely in Germany including for the Acht Brücken (Eight Bridges) festival in Cologne and the Peng Festival in Essen. They are excited to bring this music to Australian audiences for the first time.
