Shoshannah Beck is helping to redefine the new rock sound of San Francisco with her powerful & passionate voice, intelligent songwriting and melodic catchy riffs. Combine the sounds of Sarah McLachlan, 10,000 Maniacs and Dar Williams, and you will have the alluring and captivating sound of Shoshannah Beck. Her debut EP 'The Root Prophesies' demonstrates her emotional range through the introspective sound of 'Exactly' to the upbeat funky 'Late Night,' and then to the audience pleasing satirical commentary of 'Stalker Song.' Shoshannah was born and raised in Columbia, MD, a suburban town between Baltimore and Washington, DC. Self-taught on the guitar, Shoshannah honed her talent by performing at numerous venues on the East Coast from Baltimore to Key West. In 2002, after playing at the famous Sunset Festival in Key West, Shoshannah took her act to the road and settled in San Francisco. Shoshannah is a featured artist with GIRLPOWDER, a label focused on women's skiing, snowboarding and music.
