Shea Soul

Shea Soul is the exciting new future-soul-jazz singer from Croydon, UK. The Brit School graduate has gained a reputation within the scene with her distinctive voice and ability to pen strong hooks and melodies. A chance hook-up led to her being asked to vocal a track with legendary dance producer Matt ‘MJ’ Cole. Her first official foray into songwriting resulted in the dance floor smash, ‘Never Say Never’. Now firmly established on the UK underground, Shea Soul was well and truly in demand as a songwriter and featured artist, working with a slew of the UK’s most credible underground producers, from Toddla T, Joey Negro, Shy FX, Donaeo, Swindle, Phil Asher, Zed Bias and Simbad. A session with Attacca Pesante spawned the biggest underground hit: ‘Make it Funky’, written and performed by Shea, became one of the founding hits of the UK Funky scene. Her track ‘Perfectly’ with The Layabouts was also a huge club smash. As well as top line writing for dance producers, Shea is currently working on her debut solo album which is due for release next year. Her debut solo single ‘Where Did You Go’ is a uniquely British sounding slice of jazz-infused street-soul -the perfect tease for her album.
