About Shannon & Leap

Whether you're a prolific artist or just finding your own expressive voice (and whether you have 4 or no kids), you're bound to have hit some challenges. Please, I can't be alone!

I'm an independent musician searching for balance at home and onstage. Here, on my virtual lily pad, I share successes and failures. Stuff I've learned and tried with my husband and kid on four continents.

Please leave comments. Join the newsletter. Share your own ideas. Ask for advice. Tell us what ails you, and let us all weigh in. Like frogs, it's more fun when we leap together.
