Singer-actor Shannon Wolfe is a radiant and versatile performer based in San Francisco.
Often found on the cabaret stage, Shannon is the creator of FEMMES FATALES: A FILM NOIR CABARET, an hour long music and film show in which she sings rare songs from film noir, using classic movie dialogue to narrate the intimate details of the actors' lives. She is also creator of Lonely Girl: The Songs of Julie London and co-creator of Sinatra & Shore: 100 Years of Music.
Bringing you "ballads, boogies and heart-melting harmonies," Shannon is one half of the smoldering and comedic jazz cabaret duo, Sophisticated Ladies. Get on board with these sweethearts of song and let them take you on a sentimental journey that is equal parts fun, sophisticated and sassy. Featuring songs from the Art Deco and Hollywood's silver screen, the tunes of Tin Pan Alley and the ballads of Broadway, the Sophisticated Ladies delight with old smoothies as well as rarely heard jazz gems. The ladies are regular performers at Society Cabaret inside the Hotel Rex in downtown San Francisco.
Shannon has performed alongside comedy legends Rich Little, Carol Channing, Steve Rossi, Shelly Berman and other famous funny people for comedic-magician Robert Strong's televised event, Comedy Talks: Conversations with the Legends of Comedy at USF's Presentation Theater.
On camera, Shannon appears as Helen Reddy in the short feature film, The Muppetless Movie. (www.muppetless.com). Other film credits include Magician's Assistant in the feature film, KNFR and a stint as Nurse for The World's Astonishing News, a Japanese made-for television news reality show.
Shannon holds a Master of Music degree from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and is on faculty at the Holy Name Conservatory of Music, San Francisco Youth Chorus, and Young Imaginations. She maintains a private voice studio in San Francisco's Inner Sunset district where she offers voice and acting lessons for kids and teens.
Shannon is an active singer with Transcendent Pathways, a non-profit service organization founded by composer Mark Ackerley in 2013, which provides free-of-charge musicians for Bay Area hospitals, hospices, as well as memorial services for low-income and homeless housing tenants in downtown San Francisco. Transcendent Pathways was created out of a desire to help people suffering from mental illness, or any affliction that might make them feel isolated. Music has the unique capacity to alleviate this feeling, as the very function of art in society is to forge human connections, and to remind us that we are never alone. www.transcendentpathways.org
