Shena is a dance-floor phenomenon, her musical resumé is filled by having worked with artists like James Brown, Jocelyn Brown, Luther Vandross, Chaka Khan, Joss Stone, Sugababes and Amy Winehouse whilst providing lead vocal roles on countless crossover dance hits (including ten UK Top 40's) such as Alex Gaudino’s Watch Out, De Souza’s monster track, Guilty and the massive Michael Gray dance floor hit The Weekend.
Now, with the release of her eagerly anticipated debut album Twenty Seventy Nine (the title is an ironic nod to 1979, the year that defined the disco era), Shena is set to lead 'dizco' into a new decade.
Twenty Seventy Nine features Shena’s singles Can’t Stop The Rain , stomp-along anthem My Fantasy (“could happily be snuck on Earth, Wind & Fire’s Greatest Hits” - Attitude Magazine) and the heavenly hi-energy lament for togetherness that is Nasty Little Rumour. All three singles received extensive support at national radio including championing from Steve Wright, Terry Wogan and Ken Bruce .
Sparkling new tracks like Starship Dizcolicious, Dirty Money, How Come You’re Dancing? and Look, Don’t Touch are being hailed as ‘dizco’, a movement that takes the lush and funky production, fantastic songwriting and amazing vocals of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s and fuses it with elements of cut-up disco, breaks, electro and disco-house to create a completely new sound.
Supported by; Radio 2, Smooth, Capital, BBC London, Gaydar, over 100 digital and regional radio stations, Hed Kandi (7 mixes licensed for compilations) The Guardian, The Mirror, The Daily Mail, The Sunday Times, The Telegraph, Observer Music Monthly, Ok magazine, Attitude magazine, Blues and Soul, DMC Update, Soul UK and innumerable online publications, DJ's and bloggers.
