Every so often you come across a unique sound and musical talent that stands out from the sometimes monotonous music scene. Shauna Tohill is such a talent.

The most basic of acoustic musical set up with the ability to fill an entire auditorium with a level of musical energy you don’t expect from a cello and double base.

Silhouette is the perfect enigmatic alias of a passionate Northern Irish 22 year old girl whose main focus creatively is to inspire, touch and mend the hearts of anyone who is drawn in to listen.

Silhouette was created by Shauna Tohill in late 2007 after the break-up of her previous band, Angelfall. After great experiences in various bands, Shauna felt it was time to do something which she had always wanted to do…

….create music that broke down the boundaries of traditional line-ups providing a raw, honest and truthful edge, hopefully offering some kind of accessible and therapeutic effect — whilst continuing to place emphasis on the music as opposed to the creator.

Shuana comments on the MySpace page ” Music for me is a therapy – to the body, mind and soul. It is something which has really effected, helped and inspired me throughout my life-time so far.

Silhouette as an alias allows me to create and express music from a blank sheet and also have the freedom to work with many other musicians—making it an unlimited experience every time.”

Silhouette were performing with the brilliant Paul Ormonde magic extravaganza, a breath taking evening of audience participation into the visually impossible.

You can find out more about Silhouette on their MySpace page and their current single ‘Volume Destroyed” is available on iTunes. There are more photos in the Music Flickr Set.
