Bree Shannon, also known affectionately as Bretina, is a native of Atlanta, GA who started her journey in entertainment at the young age of six . She was rooted in the church and grew up singing in the choir and leading solos. All of which helped shape her vocal style and abilities. She attended Florida State University, but completed and obtained her B.A. degree in Industrial Engineering Technology at Southern Polytechnic State University. After working in Corporate America and being out of the entertainment arena for over 13 years, an unexpected layoff became a window of opportunity for her to pursue her passion for performing and entertaining.
She began working for Carnival Cruise Lines as a featured vocalist and dancer for over a decade. During that time she got to experience traveling the world and doing what she loves in a way she never had before.
She is also a professional TV, film, commercial, and voice-over talent and a member of the Screen Actor’s Guild and Actor’s Equity Association with several credits to her name. Performing on stage for a live audience is her greatest passion. She accredits her soulful tone, vocal diversity, and the spirit in which she performs to her love for Christ and her life experiences.
Upon leaving the cruise industry, Bree started her own company, Breezway Entertainment, LLC and opened B Sharp Coaching Studios. A studio dedicated to coaching and training students vocal and performance skills. She is also a vocal and performance coach at Music Authority in Cumming, Ga and an acting teacher at the Atlanta Workshop Players Performing Arts School. She also performs with local bands and different music projects and productions around the city.
