Her Family History: Shania was born as Eilleen Regina Edwards to Clarence and Sharon. When she was 6, her mother re-married Jerry Twain who was Ojibwa native from Timmins, Ontario, Canada. Jerry adopted Shania and her sisters as his own and Shania now had 2 half-brothers. Sadly, Shania’s parents were killed in a car accident when Shania was 22, so she became the legal guardian of her siblings and had to concentrate on raising her family. Shortly after the accident she changed her name from Eilleen to Shania meaning “I’m on my way” in Ojibwa.

Shania’s Personal Quotes:


"The whole record has been made differently, we travelled around a lot more, and we used musical influences from all over the world. we used Indian musicians recorded directly in Mumbai, India; some of the American musicians were recorded in the Caribbean; a 40-piece orchestra recorded in Ireland; other musicians in Italy; and we literally hopped from city to city song-writing, including Vienna, Paris, Berlin, Milan, Rome, Provence and the Grenadine Islands. This music came together in smaller pieces over a longer period of time." – On her album


“I put this music on and I’m overwhelmed with emotion. It’s been such a labour of love, and as I’m listening back sometimes I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.”
