Kyle G, 9 months ago

I had the absolute pleasure of having the incredible Shawna perform at my wedding. She was honestly amazing and if you haven’t already booked her for your upcoming wedding, you need to! Shawna made everything easy - she arrived and set everything up and played two amazing sets that had the dance floor heaving all night. Her energy was incredible and her voice is in a league of its own! Thoroughly recommend this superstar. Thank you so much Shawna for making the evening as magical as the rest of the day for me xx

Shawna regularly sings with The Score. She is a talented and versatile vocalist, suitable for a range of venues and events, who can tackle a range of genres. Not only is she a great lead and backing singer but she also engages well with the audience; chatting to them before and after gigs, joining them on the dance floor and encouraging crowd participation. As part of a band or as a solo artist, Shawna is a class act.
