Montreal based R&B singer/songwriter Shaharah continues to bring a rare blend of talent, experience and tenacity to both her music and the business aspects of her career. Her followup album 'You&I' truly reflects her personality: strong, sexy and soulful.

Born and raised in Montreal, Shaharah credits her Jamaican born father as her first influence. "My dad loves to sing. He was always singing in the house when I was a kid, playing Teddy Pendergrass, The Jacksons, Luther Vandross, The Stylistics… That was how I fell in love with music. Even today I think that still shines through in the way I write melodies."

On record and as a live performer Shaharah delivers the goods with straightforward skill and refreshing intimacy – a seamless blend of modern pop and classic R&B sensibilities that mine the same deep vein of sweet soul laid open by her earliest influences. All with an undeniable 'girl next door' quality that's simultaneously seductive and playful, but speaks not so much of innocence, but of the experience and confidence she's gained over the years as a performer.

No Turning Back, the single from her previous album gained momentum on Top 40, Hot AC and AC formats. The video also played well; first featured on MuchMusic, then in rotation on both MuchMore and Much Vibe.

Breaking into today's music industry requires equal measures of confidence and uncommon dedication to both the craft of making music, and to developing a singular voice – a challenge that has informed every aspect of Shaharah's development as an artist from day one. "I always knew that I loved music. It helps me to put things into perspective, and to release my emotions instead of keeping them bottled in. I didn't know how realistic it was to pursue as a career, but it always gave me peace."
