about

Shannon Hurley's fourth solo album "Switch It On" runs on power-pop hooks and silky melodies. "Switch It On" recalls Aimee Mann or Fountains of Wayne; the determined "I'll Turn It On" was a piece commissioned by the Getty Museum in Los Angeles for the Zuccaro exhibit (a pair of brothers who were struggling artists during the Renaissance); the upbeat electronic pop "Heartbeat On The Radio" both mourns the loss of old radio, and celebrates the longevity of music.

Welcome to my new album, 'SWITCH IT ON'! For $10, you will get a digital copy of the album (plus an immediate download of one of the songs). Anyone in the US who pays $20 or more on my pre-order page will get a physical autographed CD; all that is needed is the address to where you would like the CD sent. Please write this in the Paypal notes!
For international shipping, the rate is $24.

Track Name: Switch It On (Single Version)
Switch It On

You’ve been searching for something
Seems you’ve always been running
Looking for someone to take you home
You’re already there, you’re never alone, wherever you go

SO SWITCH IT ON, YOU BELONG
KEEP IT STRONG, SWITCH IT ON
IN THE DEAD OF THE NIGHT YOU’LL FIND THE LIGHT
YOU’LL KNOW WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT
SO SWITCH IT ON, YOU BELONG


Electric feeling inside you
The heart of summer will find you
So take it to some familiar place
You know the words, you know what to do, you know the way

SO SWITCH IT ON, YOU BELONG
KEEP IT STRONG, SWITCH IT ON
IN THE DEAD OF THE NIGHT YOU’LL FIND THE LIGHT
YOU’LL KNOW WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT
SO SWITCH IT ON, YOU BELONG

The moment that it hits will take your breath away
You’ll be waiting for her when the Autumn fades
You talk about the days you thought you’ve left behind
Until you realize it’s all within your mind
Track Name: Heartbeat On The Radio (Single Version)
I just wanna get closer to everything you are
And everywhere you've been
Which road do I take?
I just wanna remember the places that we've been
When the silence is kicking in
It's a feeling I can't shake
I just need to get back to you

I only wanna hear that song tonight
Save me from this lonely lonely life
I listen for the sound
Your voice is all around
Ohhhh I feel your heartbeat on the radio

I just wanna feel something other than this pain
Anything at all, cuz every day's the same
And even though you feel so close
I know you're far away
You're not the one to blame
I wish you felt the same
I just need to get back to you

I only wanna hear that song tonight
Save me from this lonely lonely life
I listen for the sound
Your voice is all around
Ohhhh I feel your heartbeat on the radio

I'm not ready to let you go
There's more time left for us
Even though I do not know
what fate has planned
What lies ahead for us?
Track Name: What Will It Take
What Will It Take Words and music by Shannon Hurley

You say you don’t love me anymore
You didn’t feel this way before
I had a dream of a life
But you pushed it aside
Now I think I’ll never see the light

What will it take to make your walls come down
What will it take to turn it all around
I have given you everything
The sun and moon and stars
What will it take to bring your love back now

We started out so clear and bright
Nothing compares to days gone by
We had a wish coming true but you broke it in two
Now I see there’s nothing in your eyes

What will it take to make your walls come down
What will it take to turn it all around
I have given you everything
The sun and moon and stars
What will it take to bring your love back now

You’re holding back
Our love has come undone
All our years have disappeared
And everything is gone

What will it take to make your walls come down
What will it take to turn it all around
I have given you everything
The sun and moon and stars
What will it take to bring your love back now

For Lenore Publishing (ASCAP) 2014
Track Name: Only Love
Turn out the lights
Open your mind
Try to find
A different side

It’s all been the same
What will it take
Clear out the rain
It’s time for a change
There’s always a mountain to climb
To take you higher

Only love can make us strong
Nothing else, only love
Hear the sound of our hearts
We live for love, only love

Sometimes we fight
Emotions ignite
But under our pride
We’re both on the same side
And I'm gonna reach you someday
It just takes time

Only love can make us strong
Nothing else, only love
Hear the sound of our hearts
We live for love, only love

Together we’ll shine
We’ll cast off the night
There’s nothing to hide
We’re all on the same ride

Only love can make us strong
Nothing else, only love
Hear the sound of our hearts
We live for love, only love
