AKRON, OH – Singer/songwriter and Northeast Ohio native Marc Lee Shannon returns to the historic Tangier to celebrate the release of his first album in ten years, “Walk This Road,” on Saturday, May 19, 2018 with opening acts Ryan Humbert and Ray Flanagan.
Shannon and a 7-piece band will be performing songs from the new album, as well as fan favorites from his popular 2008 release “Any Ordinary Man.” The show takes place at The Tangier, located at 532 West Market Street in Akron, Ohio, with doors opening at 7:00 p.m. and an 8:00 p.m. showtime. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 the day of the show.
Copies of the new album will be available for purchase, as well as new t-shirts, a re-release of “Any Ordinary Man” and more.
Produced by fellow Akron-area musician Ryan Humbert, “Walk This Road” was recorded in just six days at Superior Sound studios in Cleveland. The album was mixed by Jim Stewart (Welshly Arms, Brent Kirby) and mastered by Paul Blakemore (George Thorogood, Shawn Colvin, JD McPherson, Gregg Allman).
With a selection of songs that will appeal to fans of Buddy Miller, Jason Isbell, John Hiatt, and Tom Petty, the album crisscrosses Marc’s musicial influences -- from barn-burning rock and introspective ballads to acoustic blues and vintage country. Along with Humbert’s role in the album production, members of other popular local acts, including Welshly Arms, Shooter Sharp and The Shootouts, The Vindys, The Speedbumps, and Ray Flanagan and the Authorities, also make guest appearances.
This full-band album release show will feature Shannon and the core group of musicians who played on the album, including Humbert, Emily Bates, John Anthony, Ed Davis, Russ Flanagan, and Kevin Robert Martinez.
Shannon wrote nine of the album’s 12 songs, including “Sound of a Train,” which he co-wrote with Michael Stanley. Other highlights include Shannon’s rendition of Mark Selby’s “Back Door to My Heart” and the first single, the southern Gospel-themed “Carousel.”
Shannon’s more than 30-year career has taken him from his hometown of Akron, Ohio to Los Angeles and back again. After leaving home at 19 to attend the Guitar Institute of Hollywood, Shannon found himself playing with now legendary West Coast bands such as the Rave-Ups in the alt-country scene that included Lone Justice, the Blasters, Kimm Rogers and the Beat Farmers. Back in Ohio, he brought his extensive musical expertise to the bands The TopKats, the Midlife Chryslers, and most notably, northeastern Ohio legend Michael Stanley’s backing group The Resonators.
