Shan Kenner

Guitarist Shan Kenner was destined to be a guitarist and composer of merit and acclaim. Shan’s background in music started when he began playing guitar as a teenager, learning the ropes gigging as a guitarist performing punk, rock, classical and jazz in LA. In his late 20’s Shan became a distinguished fixture in San Francisco Bay area during the .com explosion of the late 90’s. Shan almost immediately garnered regular gigs at the hottest spots in town, created a buzz, inventing a new free form improvisational jazz scene and performed with some of the most seasoned jazz performers in San Francisco for nearly nine years. Kenner’s in depth exploration of freeform improvisational jazz combined house music and drum and bass with flamenco, jazz and soul guitar while blending traditional jazz standards with styling’s of African, Latin and world music. Shan’s esteemed run of steady and exciting gigs supplied him with all the virtuostic skills, and experiences he needed to head east and relocate to NYC in the fall of 2007.
