Shameem EP Launch
Sunday 08 January 6.00pm
“… an explosion of soul. Her piano and voice take you on a journey to a world full of positivity, love and understanding.” – Sydney Morning Herald
“… a powerful and unlimited voice…” – Xpress magazine
Neo-soul songstress Shameem is releasing her fourth studio recording – a brand new EP of inspired original music. This powerhouse Perth artist has proved that she can put on a stellar performance, having supported such artists as Michael Bolton, George Benson, Ronan Keating, Belinda Carlisle and Anthony Callea, and performed all around Australia and in Canada. With nominations in the international Independent Music Awards (2013 and 2015) and Australian Songwriting Contest (2012 and 2014), there’s also no doubt about her keen songwriting ability. Born in Australia to a Chinese-Malaysian father and an Iranian mother, Shameem’s music is often compared to that of such artists as Alicia Keys, Mary J Blige and Sade, but has its own distinct exotic flavour. Take a hard-grooving band, add an expressive and soaring vocal into the mix, spice it with some socially conscious lyrics and personal stories, and you might just end up with Shameem’s unique concoction of soul, R&B and jazz.
Featuring: Shameem Taheri-Lee – vocals/ Dom Barrett – Guitar/ Harry Mitchell – keys/ Pete Robinson – bass/ Caleb Quartermaine – drums.
