Shhor is a Tasmanian (Australian) Singer/Producer who has recently relocated to Taos, New Mexico. Her sound is a soulful amalgamation of her influences- Southern Gospel, Blues, Jazz, Soul and Ambient Electronica. After earning various singing awards and a First Class Honours Degree in Music Performance (with Teaching and Law subjects), Shhor moved to Melbourne Australia where Shhor’s astoundingly dynamic voice and stage presence earned her an integral role in the same scene that spawned the careers of Hiatus Kaiyote and Daniel Merriweather.
As a professionally trained Solo Vocalist and Chorus Leader, Shhor is frequently hired to record her voice alongside pop and hip hop artists and producers including Ruel, Mphazes (Eminem), BeSpoke Music (Pharoahe Monch, Jill Scott), Illy, and Dylan Joel. Outside of the studio Shhor has shared the stage with D’Angelo, been remixed by Grammy Award winner and house music legend Lil Louie Vega (Master’s at Work) for the song “Weekend Love” on Osunlade’s Yoruba Soul Records, and also Tall Black Guy for her co-written song WAY with USA artist Miles Bonny.
In late 2017 Shhor and Miles Bonny were invited to Poland by the Cultural Institute in Lublin to facilitate a month long series of music workshops. They also toured Poland and Germany in this time. Shhor is currently working on her debut solo LP due in August 2018.
Born to a Trumpet playing father and Music Therapist Grandmother and many Minister Grandfathers, this New York City-born New Jersey-bred young boy has traveled the globe as he trusts his gut with a faith in the eternal good of life. As a trumpeter, vocalist, producer, dj and social worker his explorations in social issues and world cultures has taken him on numerous tours in Europe, invited him into collaborations addressing drug abuse with artists in Russia and fatherhood in Italy, random excursions including time in Sweden with Diplo, and Australia with Osunlade and Ta-Ku. Whether rubbing shoulders as child with Tito Puente, Max Roach, Carmine Caruso and Michael Brecker or as a collaborator with many in the international DJ, Vinyl, Beat, and Soul scenes as an adult, Miles has stayed in the fold of not only music but culture. A fan of community work and social good, Miles spends his non-music time educating
homeless teenagers on life skills, toddlers on DJing,
law enforcement on harm-reduction, and recovering opioid users on creativity and self confidence. His music is a warm blanket that hugs you while exploring life’s bed of nails. Social Awareness filters through microphones and computers to represent itself as a creation that will be experienced by soulful people around the world. Rather than fear the negative aspects of the world, Miles dives into them as he seeks possible answers to our collective social issues. Connect with Miles and welcome the future as your friend.
