Shannon Marie Curfman (born July 31, 1985, Fargo, North Dakota) is an American blues-rock guitarist and singer.


She came to prominence in 1999, at the age of 14,[1] with the release of her first album, Loud Guitars, Big Suspicions, which she recorded a year earlier.[2]

Curfman has toured with John Mellencamp, Buddy Guy, George Thorogood and The Indigo Girls. She played and was a guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, the Late Show with David Letterman, Good Morning America, The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, The Rosie O'Donnell Show and other television programs.

In 2006 Curfman launched an independent record label called Purdy Records. After a prolonged absence from recording, Curfman self-released a five-song EP entitled Take It Like A Man in July 2006, followed by the full-length album Fast Lane Addiction in 2007.

Like her contemporary Jonny Lang, Curfman is from North Dakota, but lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Lang co-wrote with Curfman and played on her first release, Loud Guitars, Big Suspicions.

In early 2010 Curfman joined Kid Rock's band the Twisted Brown Truckers as a singer and guitarist.

Curfman released her third album, What You're Getting Into, in 2010.
