Shimmer was born in Canada, but grew up in the United States in a small town in Missouri. She moved back to Canada when she turned 18 and has been writing and recording in Alberta since then.

Musically she is very diverse, but in 2009 changed her focus to pop-country, writing a theme album about the "life and times" of a small town girl, (Katie), who gets married to an abusive drunk, and the story of their life together. Each of the songs explore Katie's and Jimmy's relationships, the good and the bad- the break up and Katie's realization of her own inner strength, all the way to the early death of Jimmy and the way Katie and her kids deal with it.

The album shows Shimmer's depth of writing and insight into "small town America" and leaves the listener feeling sad, yet empowered and grateful for the "little things", that make life worth living, even when the odds are stacked up against you.
