SONGWRITING SHANE is a Singer Songwriter Recording Artist making a positive difference in this world by Uniting Hearts and Dreams for Peace.

Shane began playing piano at the age of 4 and by age 14, she won 1st place in a Nat’l Talent Competition in the US, cut a record with Capital Records and was awarded a monetary music scholarship from Julliard School of Music in NYC. In New York, Shane honed her talent as a Singer/Songwriter, and was an accepted member of the AGAC American Guild of Actors & Composers in New York, of which she is very grateful. Shane continued writing, recording music, performed in off-Broadway theater productions, put together a top-40 band & sang in various clubs, casinos, etc. Soon, I recorded with top producers at Phila. Int’l Recording Studios. However, due to the drastic change in the music industry, the money I received in the music business was not enough to pay my mortgage, bills in a single home in New Jersey. I changed careers and became a New Jersey State Correction Office, and entertained the sick in hospitals & nursing homes on her days off.

Shane attended La Salle University in Philadelphia, PA and Camden County College, NJ. My studies included Industrial Relations, Corporate Law & Communications, Contract Compliance, Psychology & Law; and earned highest honors Golden Key & Phi Theta Kappa & PSI Beta.

In 2001, shane was a crucial part of the Urgent Response to NY on 9/11 as Team Leader of C.I.S.M.’s Int’l Critical Incident Stress Management Team (Shane was personally requested and dispatched out of New Jersey for four long grueling months). As a result, Shane underwent her own brutal recovery and intense therapy needed to restore her own health due to life threatening work assignments and the intense exposure to bio-hazardous & deadly toxins. The only thing that brought relief was listening to and playing music.

Shane recorded songs with Grammy Award winning Producer Andy Kravitz & jumped back into her music career with a new defiance and conviction. Andy helped bring out Shane’s most beautiful and orchestral rock sounds from deep within her soul and out into his studio in NJ.

Shane recorded with the Hooters Band with Producers John O. Senior & Rob Hyman & cut her 1st album “SHANE and THE HIGH COMMAND”.

Presently, Shane is a member of the Nat’l Academy of Recording Artists (NARAS) & Voting Member with the professional Grammy Assoc. One of high points in Shane’s career was the release of her song “Arise”. This was a blessing from G-d. It is a strong ballad about and an Anthem for Survivors and Peace Makers around the world. Shane is very thankful to have worked on this project with great Award-Winning Producers and Artists, namely: Andy Kravitz, John O. Senior, Blue Eagle and Michael Lazarus.

Both Songwriting Shane and Pepper Jay are ambassadors with the Art 4 Peace Awards, under the leadership of Munni Irone.
