PRESENTED BY ZACHARY JOHNSON
Sheena O. Murray was born in Kingston, Jamaica, migrated to New York at 5 and then to Fort Lauderdale in Florida a few years later.
She developed her love for performing arts while trying to belt the 80s tunes of Whitney Houston and 90s tunes of Toni Braxton, but only when no one was listening. As a high school, hiding her talent and love for music, she would write songs and poetry to satisfy her right brain. Then she pushed her fears aside, joined a few girl groups and after high schools began taking her music to recording studios. Fast forward, past heartbreak and uncertainty, she released her first official single “One” in 2014, scoring a feature on Soultracks.com.
Her official and anticipated project titled “SOMone” is an EP of 5 songs, featuring “One” and “Right Now.” Her melodies paired with her natural gift of writing -- and her sultry, smooth, yet textured tone -- creates a coveted sound that does not fit into a box.
Always a poet, writing songs was never a feat. Sheena took her originals to recording studios, trying to develop her own style and trying to “make it” on her own. Hitching a ride, catching the bus, anyway she knew how, she ended up right where her spirit led. She became like an architect, designing her own future with the one thing that made sense to her.
There are no violins to play behind the recounting of her story. If you were to ask her, she would tell you that it’s as simplistic as it sounds, the path that led her to “now”. She simply loves to sing and create songs and desires to make people feel something.
Says Sheena: “I am my most authentic self on stage”
