Relevant musician of the international soul, jazz and R&B music scene, Shayna Steele boasts a long and brilliant list of collaborations, starting from her most recent work with the Grammy Award-winning band Snarky Puppy, to end with names like George Clinton, Bette Midler and Rihanna. Guest star or prestigious live vocalist, but also Broadway star and renowned artist for the American audience, Shayna Steele took part in the David Letterman show and in the tv series The Sopranos, she acted next to John Travolta and worked in popular musicals such as Rent, Jesus Christ Superstar and Hairspray. As regards live concerts, she performed in some of the most prestigious clubs: Blue Note, Rockwood Music Hall an Joe Pub, Fillmore Jazz Festival. Her voice also appears in Moby’s Disco Lies, and her song The Bund, co-written and produced by David Liang, was played on BBC during 2008 China Olympic Games.

The album Rise was the occasion to collect all the experiences made during these last four years: “Much of what I wrote and created for this album  – Shayna said – has been created during the tour with my band and with Rihanna. We spent a long time in London, that was my inspiration for songs like Hyde Park. A little after that I got pregnant and created I Got You”. The album contains some of Shayna’s favorite covers, like the single Paper Bag by Fiona Apple and Wear Me Down, with Robert Randolph. Head of a band that perfectly fits her rare expressive talent, Shayna excites Europe’s most prestigious stages with the implacable rythm of her original and magnetic soul. In January 2015 the album Rise was released. In this work, Shayna collaborates with artists such as Marcus Miller, Eric Harland and Christian McBride. The album was presented by her bands in her European tour in February 2015 with 23 tour dates.
