1997 saw the release of Shauna Jensen's debut CD, Something Real. By January 1998 she had won the award for Best Female Vocalist at the inaugural Goulburn Blues Festival, a festival which rivals the Blues Festival at Byron Bay. Up until that point Shauna had had an impressive career that began in 1970 and has seen her working solidly in the music business for close to thirty years.
Shauna runs an extremely successful music teaching business in Sydney. Her client list includes singers like Kate Ceberano, David Campbell, Bardot, as well as groups like that formed during the highly successful television series Popstars.
Shauna has worked as backup vocalist for the leading rock artists in Australia, including Jimmy Barnes, Australia's most beloved rock band Cold Chisel, Richard Clapton, Jon Stevens, Noiseworks and INXS. For most of the 1980s Shauna was one of the most in-demand jingle singers, a career which introduced her to the world of background singing on film, television, radio and in the rock music world, for the next two decades.
The new millennium has brought with it exciting new projects for Shauna. These include singing background vocals for "Carry the Flame" by Jon Stevens, the official song for the Sydney 2001 Olympics torch relay. In 2001 Shauna collaborated with legendary Sydney DJ Paul Goodyear and their first single is an uplifting house rework of the Sylvester classic "Take me to Heaven". The track has been huge in dance clubs in Sydney and has recently been released with a new mix by London DJ Wayne G on his new album of the same name.
In 2001, Shauna performed her own song at the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras and the now defunct but legendary Harbour Party. Shauna is fast becoming known in the dance music world as a diva who is truly world class. In March 2002 Shauna was chosen to be studio coach for the 2002 Popstars, and also appears regularly as a guest on Foxtel's Beauty and the Beast.
