JPR Live Session: Shannon LaBrie - Friday, November 6th at Noon


On Friday, November 6th at Noon, JPR will broadcast a JPR Live Session (from afar) with Shannon LaBrie on Open Air.

Shannon LaBrie is a Nashville based singer-songwriter who brings life to insightful stories of a woman who remains true to herself in a life where only uncertainty is certain. The songstress grew up on a farm near Lincoln, Nebraska and attributes her career start to her Dad, who passed away when she was just thirteen. “He taught me my first guitar chords and the basic structure of a song. When he passed away, songwriting became my way of grieving and dealing with the pain.

JPR has been spinning her recent release Building, and its lead single "Firewalker", a heroic anthem described as, “a spirited statement to keep soldiering on” by NPR and “a ray of light that can guide you through each day” by American Songwriter. Produced by multi-Grammy Award-winners, Brent Maher and Charles Yingling, Building will be available on all digital retailers.

The 7-track release was written throughout 2019, yet each song holds significant importance and relevance now more than ever regarding the current state of our world. Building offers listeners a journey to self-discovery and reflection with songs about finding strength in pain, spiritual guidance, and words that turn to bullets.
