Fronted by the multi-talented Shannon Denise Evans, SAVARRE is more than just a band; it’s an experience that digs deep into the human condition, exploring themes of pain, resilience, and self-discovery.

Scars,” released in January 2022 via Isabeau Records, is a standout track that runs just over five minutes, but the impact it leaves lasts far longer. The song opens with haunting lyrics that immediately set the tone: “Lift this madness from the edge of my mind, Tell the sorrow there’s no mistress to find.” These words, heavy with emotion, invite listeners into a journey through the complexities of personal pain and healing. The song delves into the metaphorical and literal scars we all bear, whether inflicted by others or by life’s relentless challenges.

The chorus of “Scars” is a poignant cry for release and self-reclamation: “No, I can’t take the mercy of you now— I bare the marks of all that you allowed. Untether me from this fractured twist of ours— Maybe then I’ll be more than just my scars.” This plea resonates with anyone who has ever felt trapped by their past or defined by their wounds. The lyrics evoke powerful imagery of struggle and redemption, a theme that is both deeply personal and universally relatable. As Shannon’s raw and impassioned vocals soar, they breathe life into every word, making each line a testament to resilience and strength.

The song takes a reflective turn with lines like, “When you’re asleep do we ever haunt your dreams? Do you pretend you’re the innocent you seem?” Here, Shannon’s storytelling prowess shines, weaving a narrative that challenges the listener to confront their own truths and the lies they may tell themselves.

SAVARRE’s lead is Shannon Denise Evans, whose creative career spans multiple disciplines, including songwriting, composing, playwriting, and novel writing. Yet, it is her role as a storyteller that truly defines her.

Her voice, described as an uncontainable force, captures the essence of the human experience, making each song a journey through the depths of emotion and back to the light of self-discovery.

Shannon shares, “If we’re not careful, we’ll believe that all we are is the sum of our scars. For me, the experiences that created my scars made me stronger, smarter, and more resilient. With what I chose to learn and carry forward, I’ve created a life where I exist far beyond the boundaries of my scars. I wear my scars proudly now; they are markers on a path that led me back to myself.” These words encapsulate the spirit of “Scars” and the broader ethos of SAVARRE, reminding us all that our scars do not define us but rather mark the journey of our growth and resilience.
