If you ask any songwriter what the first step is to penning a song, they will tell you to write what you know! For 16 year old, Shyanne Wilson, that is exactly what she’s been doing since her very early years. Right away, family and friends recognized that she had the musical gene deeply embedded into her total essence. Her early pre-school teachers used to joke with her parents that anytime Shyanne wandered off from the other children, all they had to do is ask everyone to be quiet and just listen for Shyanne, who inevitably was either off singing by herself or attempting to compose some music on the pre-school instrumental toys. 

Shyanne grew up in a musical home as her dad Robby Wilson is a successful bassist/producer/songwriter and her mom is also a guitarist and bass player. "Shyanne was a natural lyricist and blew us away with her ability to clearly put her thoughts to music", says her dad. She began writing her own songs at the tender age of five, and released her first single at the age of ten called “Get A Life”.  That song came out of a year of dealing with bullies at her school that eventually inspired her to write the anti-bully anthem.  The song quickly spread to kids, parents and teachers all around the globe and with all the positive feedback, Shyanne realized first hand the power of music.  “From that moment on, I knew without a doubt, that this was my life calling.”

In September of 2014 Shyanne released Chapter One, a 5 song EP that showcases her pop/urban/soul style tinged with a hint of hip hop that forms the backdrop to her lyrics.   Shyanne is very clear on who she is and what kind of music she wants to make. “I basically want my music to be the soundtrack to people’s lives, “ said Shyanne. 

At 13, Shyanne was asked to star in a docu-reality series called ‘Road to Nashville’ which follows her and four other young artists as they pursue their musical dreams. The series premiered on the AwesomenessTV Network, a Dreamworks subsidiary, Oct. 18th, 2014.  The show was well recieved and was nominated for an Emmy Award at the end of 2015.  

January of 2016, Shyanne decided to make the switch to home school and completely commit to her musical journey.  She has been working hard on writing new material which she's been recording in Nashville and Los Angeles with the help of her dad, Robby and Rich Mouser(Chris Cornell, Weezer, etc.)

The non stop work has resulted in six new singles being released since April of 2017.  These new songs are quickly connecting to music lovers globally which is easy to see as her streams on Spotify are increasing by the thousands weekly.  

And yes, she's only 16 and this is just the beginning for Shyanne.  Many exciting things are in the works and will be shared soon....stay tuned!
