I would like to introduce you to Shauni Williams. From Redding, Ca. her music is simple and straight forward. She has been playing music since she was about 8 years old. Shauni is a piano player, song writer, and recording artist. I will start by telling you that my favorites of her songs are, “Least Of These” and “It Is Well.”
You can hear Shauni’s muscic for your self by using the music player on the upper right, next to her photo. You can also get information about upcoming shows on her ReverbNation page.
She is influence by artist like Amy Grant, Steven Curtis Chapman and many others. She has a long musical history and has had the opportunity to play her music all over. As early as 1977 Shauni was featured as a guest artist and played a piano solo for the Heritage Singers Concert at the Redding Convention Center at the age of 9! In 1979 she played Nashville, TN, Opryland Hotel Gospel Music Convention, the Artist Showcase, playing for Dino Kartsonakis, and was scheduled as a guest pianist on the Johnny Cash Christmas Special (which was cancelled that year).
