    An incredible voice with incredible talent. Blind Melon was an amazing band. Their Neo Psychedelic twist on Alternative Rock of the 90s was extremely special. It’s a shame that we won’t have any more music from them. God bless you Shannon, your lyrics to “Change” really helped me through tough times of late. I will forever play your music and keep your star shinning bright. Love you Shannon. God bless you

  18. willz Says:

    Shannon Hoon was beautiful inside and out. His voice and lyrics some of the best of our time. Its rare to see true talent like this anymore. He left us way too soon….but life is hard you have to change. We love u Shannon! RIP

    I have to say I met Molly Grace almost a year ago and when I saw her work for the first time it took my brteah away. When my niece Shaina told me she was having Molly do her wedding I was thrilled. Just these few photos show what a true artist Molly is. Shaina & Grant are a beautiful couple and the memories Molly has captured will take everyone’s brteah away. Looking forward to seeing more. Cindy
