Shannon, growing up in Saint Thomas, Pennsylvania, what music did your family listen to?

Growing up, we listened to a range of different genres and artists. When I was very young, we had a “Disney’s Hits” cassette tape that we would listen to on our way to the family cabin. The songs I remember the most are, “I Won’t Say I’m in Love” from Hercules and ‘If I Can’t Love Her” from the Broadway version of Beauty and the Beast (which is still one of my favorite songs today). I also remember my dad and I would listen to The Rolling Stones all the time, he’s the reason why they’re one of my favorite bands. We did listen to some country, but as we got older, we got into it more and more.

Are your siblings also musically inclined?

I’d have to say that both of my older sisters can carry a tune, they are in no means tone deaf, however they are both in the medical field. I was the oddball of the family who chose music.
