2012 AT Showcase Round 1: Shining Rae

Posted By on Fri, Jan 27, 2012 at 11:14 AM

Magnolia native Shannin Watkins, who performs as Shinging Rae, wowed the judges and crowd last night with her mix of singer/songwriter chops and pure pop ear candy. Judge Clay Fitzpatrick noted her strong singing and onstage confidence. "She seemed happy and at home on stage. She sang to me and I blushed," he noted.

Guest judge Mary Chamberlin "loved her polite demand for honesty and respect in/from relationships in her songs. Nice break from less empowered pop/R&B songs."

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
