The iconic voices and unique stylings of musical history are painted in every essence of Shannon Callihan.  Under the influences of Bernhoft, Susan Tedschi, Fiona Apple and the playing tastes of George Benson, SRV, John Mayer and many more, Callihan has crafted a sound fusion and lyrical freshness that fans the world over have already begun tapping into. 

Since the age of four, when the musical prodigy played her first piano, Callihan has transcended the average in revealing the instrumental genius and originality of her own guitar, saxophone and oboe musicianship as well.  As well, her professional prowess in the melting pot of Nashville, TN, allows her the opportunity to perform in some of the most notable venues in Music City, where she hones the songwriting craft she began as a teen.

A graduate of Morehead State University, KY, a degree in Sports Management and a Minor in Music, Callihan’s achievements are a broad spectrum of success.  During her undergraduate career, she was the principal oboist of the Morehead State Symphony Band and associate principal in the Cave Run Symphony Orchestra.  This growth in Callihan’s career included marching band, orchestra, quartet and many other performances.  She also became a member of Cincinnati’s neo-soul, psychedelic fusion group ZVEZDA, which included openings for notables of Chicago-based Marbin and Louisville’s electronic, hip-hoppers, 1200.

Hot off the heels of her high-energy debut, “HMO,” Callihan finds herself immersed in collaborative efforts with a varying plethora of musicians, writers and producers from diverse genres, including the legendary thirty gold and platinum producer, Tom Perry.  She can be heard on projects ranging from urban, pop, hip-hop, electronic and jazz to this stripped-down acoustic project of raw, soulful searchings on "The Dark Horse Sessions." 

It is safe to say that the music of Shannon Callihan is anything but mundane or run-of-the-mill and that her longevity in the business of music will be surpassed by the originality in her iconic mastery.



Jeremy Dean's Nashville journey began in 1997, when he was discovered in his home state of Oklahoma, by Eddy Bolton, tenor singer for the legendary Gospel music family, The Speers. Jeremy uprooted to Nashville and traveled extensively on the road until 1999, at which time his passion for songwriting led him to focus his direction in that regard.

Jeremy credits his professional evolution as a singer, songwriter, and producer to Dove award-winning and Grammy nominated producer, Joe Huffman. Since their first collaboration in 1997, Jeremy has become an accomplished voice in both studio and live performance. He has recorded with multi-faceted artists from various genres and performed with many, including Grammy artists Mike FarrisLionel CartwrightJennifer KinleyTaylor Hicks, and other award-winning artists.

Jeremy's first commercially released song cut was in 2000, when Grammy nominated artist, Barbara Fairchild, recorded a Gospel song Jeremy wrote shortly after High School, titled, “The Table Grace Prepared,” which Barbara included on her project, “Forever Friend.

Jeremy has collaborated with award-winning songwriters Stan Webb, Gerald Smith, John Pennell, Jon Robbin, Billy Dean, Gordon Jensen, to name a few, and he is also honored to work with many independent and upcoming artists and songwriters in Nashville and the changing music scene. Jeremy's songwriting credits include many self-penned songs, but he has also collaborated with over one hundred individual writers since 2000 as well, out of which he continues to build his network of consistently productive writers.

Creating around his passion for songwriting has also allowed Jeremy to be a part of various projects, including songwriting for LifeWay Christian stores.  He also received his first motion picture break from director, Christopher Forbes, in the January 2017 release of "The War Riders," starring Parker Stevenson, a movie which included his song "When We Fight."

Jeremy's first international break included seven songs selected for a project called "Dirt Road," by South African artist, Jason Bradley.  The project was named Country "Album of the Year" on March 12, 2015 in South Africa, with the additional songs on the project written by fellow South African, Gary Hannan.
