HOW THE MUSIC GOT STARTED
Shirley's talent was discovered by accident when her brother injured his hand. Her parents bought him a theater organ to help rebuild the dexterity in his hand.
It was during that time Shirley took an interest in music from listening to her brother. Years later, her Mom decided to purchase Shirley her first synthesizer. after that...four more keyboards followed, enabling her to expand her sounds. From then on, Shirley had all the sounds she ever needed to record her music.
THE EARLY YEARS
Loss of Shirley's Parents , Sister & Best friend
At age 16, life dealt Shirley her first tragic blow, her Mom became ill and passed away. A few years later she then joined a band called QUEST. They toured the U.S. and the Virgin Islands. Shortly after coming home from the Quest tour, life once again would be unkind. At age 21 Shirley lost her major source of inspiration, her Dad, that built all her keyboard's frames & stage setup for her 6 keyboards. The music died within her. She retired from the music industry and pursued a college degree in accounting finance. While attending college, a good friend mentioned that the university had a grand piano in the mansion’s ballroom at FDU. From that point on, a secret marriage developed between Cason and that baby grand piano. At night, after class, she would go to the ballroom when no one was there and fill that grand ballroom with one spirited soulful song after another. During this time is when she was able to heal her wounded spirit to be able to return to the world of music. Shirley then went on to build her recording studio, at the lake, and started her own companies,
Shirley then went on to build her recording studio, at the lake, and started her own music company, Peaceful World Music.
Shirley is currently concentrating on updating her new website which she feels is important so that people can enjoy her music anywhere in the world. In addition, she recently bought another keyboard for her recording studio, YAMAHA Montage, along with the newest Apple computer with recording software that will help her create the best quality recordings.
ABOUT SHIRLEY CASON
Shirley Cason is one of those musicians who has a natural feel for arranging piano, keyboards, and orchestral sounds together. Nothing on her CD's is played for the sake of working in another sound. Every rhythm, every sound, are obviously well considered.
