Even at the tender age of 8, Shauna Brittenham captivated audiences with her stellar singing voice and approachable allure. Of course, admits the singer-songwriter, her crowd back then was a little stuffy: “Every day after school, I ´d come home and set up all my dolls and stuffed animals and I ´d put on a show for them,” Shauna recalls with a laugh. “I ´d sing songs that my mother loved, like ´Johnny Angel. ´”
“Uh Oh” – Shauna Brittenham:
Jumping ahead a few decades finds more lively fans in Shauna’s corner, enthralled by Dreamer’s Dream, the brand-new 11-song album (plus a bonus track) featuring the irresistible first single, “Uh Oh,” a bouncy old-fashioned pop gem that would make Adele proud. On the tune, Shauna’s pure voice lilts easily between husky and soaring as she laments and examines a turbulent relationship, and apologizes in case she happens to “storm off the train like a small hurricane.” Produced and mixed by Kosta Lois, Dreamer’s Dream features Shauna’s lyrical and melodic compositions, rendered musically by such luminaries as guitarist Jacques Brautbar (Phantom Planet), multi-instrumentalist Ben Peeler (The Wallflowers, Shakira), drummer Gary Mallaber (Bruce Springsteen, Van Morrison), bassist Shawn Davis (Nikka Costa, Lenny Kravitz) and Lois on piano and keyboards.
