Shannon Shaw, the dazzling vocalist, bassist, and founder of Shannon & the Clams, will release her first solo album, Shannon In Nashville, on June 8. The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach produced the album in his Nashville studio, Easy Eye Sound, and is currently joined by Shaw on his US tour.

In her music, Shaw has made an art out of embodying '60s-era aesthetic and soul, while allowing her own rarefied sound to come to the fore. She says of the songwriting process — "The way I typically write songs is: Something has happened to me and I want to encapsulate it. I want to trap and package it, so I can pull it out of my body, and look at it to get some perspective on this event that has affected me."

Dance along with Shaw's recently debuted music video for "Broke My Own," the first single from her forthcoming album.
