Song of the Day: Confusion – Lady Shaynah

Following on from the release of ‘Over’, LADY SHAYNAH takes the blog’s hotspot for the first time with stunning single, ‘Confusion’ – taken from her forthcoming ‘Chapter 22’ EP.

The stunningly atmospheric piece is an ode to anybody who has gone through a rough breakup and come out the other side still feeling confused and with a lot of unanswered questions.

Speaking on the release, she says “The relationship was quite perfect. Until… he woke up one day, saying he had a vision of his future wife. He said I didn’t have all the characteristics of said ‘future wife’, but ‘we could work on that’. This felt like a slap in my face. What broke my heart, even more, is that when I gave him the choice of taking me the way I am or leaving, within the blink of an eye, he chose to leave. The more I reflected upon the relationship, the more questions I had and thus ‘Confusion’ was born.”

From the age of five, LADY SHAYNAH – real name  Shanice – was taught to play the piano by her Grandmother and later claimed the title of ‘Music Matters Award Ambassador’ in Rotterdam (2014) and went on to play at the North Sea Jazz Festival (2016) before releasing her first LP ‘Dare’ in 2015.

Now a vocal, songwriting and band coach, LADY SHAYNAH teaches at the ‘Babette Labeij Music Academy’ and ZO! Gospel Choir and is set to release her next EP this year.

EP Review: Nothing Is Forever – Shon Jay

SHON JAY is that guy who set the bar high – and I mean unobtainably high among his music contemporaries.

His latest EP, ‘Nothing Is Forever’ may be only eight – tracks long, but there’s an electric mix of genres – from funk, old school soul and even an expected appearance of a little country – all of which oozes undisputed class.

Among a crowded industry that’s filled with quick-fix hits that’s easily forgotten, SHON JAY‘s ‘Nothing Is Forever’ is a true testament that there’s still GOOD and MEANINGFUL MUSIC out there and it’s definitely a collection that can be enjoyed from five or even ten years from now – I guess some things last forever.

Check him out below – it’s like listening to soul idols Stevie Wonder, Al Jarreau and George Benson, all wrapped up in one.
