Over the years I’ve blogged on and interviewed Folk, Blues, Pop and Rock artists, but I must confess, I’ve never reviewed or written about a rap artist before, so this is something new for me.
Shona contacted me through Linkedin wanting to share her music with me and other bloggers. Though She describes herself as a country girl at heart, musically Shona is influenced by artists such as Nicki Minaj, Lauryn Hill, Rihanna and The Game. Most musicians will usually have been striving from early childhood to break into the business, but in Shona’s case, she discovered her passion by accident at a fun Karaoke night. It was then her friend, impressed by Shona’s untapped talent, encouraged her to pursue music professionally. Of course, Shona followed her friend’s advice and has since progressed to writing and recording her own club rap tracks. Below is her track 666 drop, which has enjoyed national exposure on Fox FM as well as being played at venues around the country and overseas. Beats created by Holly J. Also featuring Rap artist NeeQ.
