Through his melodic cool charm, New Zealand based producer Shannon Matthew Vanya shares a glimpse into the after hours of his inner city recording studio where he polishes pop gems and pockets beats through the night. 

No stranger to the small world of music, In 2015 under Shannon’s previous artist moniker Tom Lark, he gained praise by making a resounding splash at Triple J where his single reached #1 Most Played at the station. 

With critical success at both local and international press, and a renowned showman in the live realm, Shannon continued to cut his teeth by pushing the envelope of his art but eventually called an end to Tom Lark – leaving a legacy of strong material and a reputation for his vibrant live shows behind to focus on production and writing for a CV packed full of upcoming artists direct from his very own OkieDokie Studio in Auckland City. 

Almost five years later – reset and rephrased with nowhere to hide, writing material under his birth name Shannon Matthew Vanya, his fresh take on futuristic pop with a retro flair hits all the marks as it hurtles into 2020 AD with an EP full of killer melody and polished contemporary pop essence.
