Shawndell Marks grew up singing in church, at family reunions and in the backseat of the family car while harmonizing with her mother. As a teen, she performed Patsy Cline’s beloved Crazy nightly at the Wisconsin Opry in Wisconsin Dells and later with an Elvis impersonator who sweated profusely. While studying music at UW-Madison, she played and sang with the classic rock and country band Thunder Road at bars & festivals throughout the state, opening for acts such as George Jones & the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. She now fronts her own original band and is involved with several Madison area projects including Girls Rock Camp, Chick Singer Night, Gin, Chocolate & Bottle Rockets, and various studio projects. Shawndell has been nominated for 15 MAMA awards, including Keyboardist of the Year, Best Cover Band with Gold Dust Women, and Vocal Ensemble of the year with Gin, Chocolate & Bottle Rockets. Marks has recently released her third original album, Broken Dam, with award-winning producer Jake Johnson of Paradyme Productions. She lives in rural Reedsburg.
