Episode 13 of the “Joe Knows Madison” podcast is now up!!  This episode is exceptionally close to my heart as I talk with Madison Area Music Award Winner Shawndell Marks, who is… you guessed it, my sister.  Shawndell has been making ripples in the Madison Area Music scene as of late with her newest record, Broken Dam.  Broken Dam was nominated for (and won) 5 Madison Area Music Awards: Pop/R&B Album of the year, cover song of the year for “Jolene”, Pop/R&B song for “Restless”, unique song for “Heart of Fire”, and alternative song for “Sparta”, a song about PTSD among returning soldiers and vets.

In this episode we talk about growing up in a musical family and about Shawndell’s journey as a song writer.  Hear our earliest memories of music and get a taste of the first song Shawndell ever wrote.  Plus, hear how music brought her and her husband together!  Stay tuned until the end as Shawndell shares one of her award winning songs with us! Thanks Shawner so much for coming on the show, I love you and am proud to be your bro! Keep rocking the Madison area music scene!
