Shannon Shaw of Shannon and the Clams didn't start playing bass and writing songs until she was 25. It's hard to believe listening to her songs today, but she was raised in a Jack Mormon household with limiting beliefs about what women and girls could and couldn't do that shaped her way of thinking early on. One night, feeling alone and desperate, a song came to her out of thin air. She picked up a bass, and her musical career started almost immediately after that. After her story, Shannon talks to Chelsea about her upcoming album The Year of the Spider and the growth she experienced in the last year. Shannon gave a shoutout to NAACPPDX, Punks with Lunch, Stroll PDX, and Basic Rights Oregon.
