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.

Student Of Life will be a returning concept where i will showcase my journey into becoming a better artist and person in general.

S.O.L is about seeing beauty in rawness, perfection in imperfection and embracing flaws and valuing it as being part of the growth.” 

Formerly known as Concept, ADILSON EVORA first came onto the scene with self-produced EP ‘From Sunup Till Son Down’ in 2014 and has since performed across his hometown, Germany and Russia, well as receiving airplay on MTV in Portugal.
