Shay Lia welcomes her unique identity and the vast range of influences she has received from each of the three cultures she is juggling. Her East African and French origins have always been a part of her identity, as seen by her percussion-heavy blend of neo RnB, contemplative poetry, and funky island instrumentals.

Her sensuous, soulful, and warm ambience allows her tracks to be played indefinitely, reprogramming the mind and the enchantment of music through her Afrobeats and R&B harmonies. She only wants a nice bass and something to dance to when it comes to the beat.

Shay Lia’s work conveys the artist’s unbridled enthusiasm in a way that is fashionable, timeless, and comparable to the sun’s limitless vitality. She’s an unconventional thinker who refuses to be restricted by the artist’s single conception.

Her comfortable demeanour shows through on her solo debut EP “Dangerous,” which was longlisted for the Polaris Music Prize in 2019.

Shay Lia is ready to show you just how diverse she is with a variety of releases, including the 2020 Ep – “Solaris,” as well as collaborations with names like Kaytranada, Nigerian sensation Adekunle Gold, and soulful Dutch vocalist Leven Kali.

In a world that could always use a bit more soulful sensuality, this is a deliberate approach that is guaranteed to connect. Her art has a worldwide resonance because it combines scholarly cultural background with modern communal feeling.
