Sydney Australia-born singer/songwriter Shanae was born to South African parents. She grew up soaking up the cultures between Australia and her parent’s home country of South Africa with music being the focal point connecting her ties to both countries. Her deep roots in Gospel music and Cape-Townian Jazz, mixed with her love for Neo-Soul, RnB and Hip-Hop have allowed her to create music without boundaries, enabling her to write and perform from a place of true freedom and absolute certainty.
She released her debut single “Come On Over” in 2021 followed by 2 more songs and now she returns with her 4th solo release titled “Illusions” which showcases her distinct vocals to the world. Bolstered by Rory Noble‘s mellow and dreamy soundscape made up of warm keys, ethereal pads and soft percussions, Shanae pours her heart on wax and delivers a gripping melodic performance ripe with emotion, vulnerability and unbridled candidness. On the track, she digs deep and questions how one knows if they are in love. Shanae is unapologetic and gives listeners an insightful take that everyone can appreciate.
