Shawna Caspi, originally from Ottawa but currently based in Toronto, has been performing for the last fifteen years. She is a solo singer-songwriter with a stunning voice and serious guitar chops. Shawna has a commanding stage presence and an inviting charm; she doesn't need a band to deliver an engaging and energetic show. She has all the sound she needs under her fingertips, with her remarkable fingerstyle guitar technique. Shawna's playful wit and sense of a seasoned storyteller makes each performance intimate and captivating, no matter the size of the room. She has played in venues from cafes to soft-seaters, from living rooms to festival stages.

Shawna's musical tastes varied while growing up, but she had an affinity for the independent singer-songwriters of the folk music scene. Her classical training certainly influenced her career choice, but she needed to find her own true voice in order to share the music that was within her heart. Shawna creates well-crafted songs that are infectious, slices of life that touch audiences with their honesty and familiarity. At the same time, her songs are complex and thought-provoking

Shawna has released three CDs as well as one EP. Her most recent CD, Apartment for Lovers, was released in 2014. She is also a talented painter. She paints one-of-a-kind works of art inspired by the rich scenery she sees on her travels.

"Caspi has the rare gift of presence; a warm presence that immediately invites audience engagement, from the first strum of her skilled guitar playing to the last exquisite note she sings."
