“Shana Halligan... is giving us Meghan Trainor All About That Bass feels - only darker and sexier. And we're way into it!”— Perez Hilton
During and since her time as the lead singer/songwriter of Bitter:Sweet, Halligan has sold more than 500,000 records and has accumulated over 70 album credits to her name. Additionally, her music has received numerous high-profile synchs and licensing deals in film, TV, ad campaigns and beyond, including Sex and The City, The Devil Wears Prada, Bright Eyes, Focus, Cars 2, “The Blacklist,” “Orange Is The New Black,” “Entourage,” “Nip Tuck,” “Grey's Anatomy” and “Desperate Housewives,” just to name a few. She’s also collaborated with many major acts, including writing and recording with Serj Tankian of System Of A Down and Thievery Corporation (co-writing and performing their biggest hit in recent years “Depth Of My Soul”), and has performed at several celebrated venues across the nation, including the Hollywood Bowl, the Royal Albert Hall (London), the Bowery Ballroom (NYC) and the Hotel Cafe (L.A.). Outside of her own music, Halligan also writes for other artists and is developing a TV project that combines her love for music and passion for cooking.
Halligan's latest solo album Back To Me is proof that she has reached her ultimate sound to date. It encompasses every aspect in her universe and is heard throughout the album’s 15 tracks: all the letdowns, all the breakups, all the loves found and lost. These are the strands that make up the project’s DNA. Without all, Back To Me would never exist the way it does today.
In addition to her own album, Shana is consistently collaborating with other artists and producers, writing for film and television, and is the national spokesperson for the Children’s Music Fund, a non-profit providing music therapy and instruments to children and young adults suffering from chronic and life-altering illnesses.
