Rock It Out!

By  | 

Oftentimes, the ladies (particularly women of color), on the Rock & Roll scene fail to get their proper shine. The beautiful and talented Shingai Shoniwa of The Noisettes is an exception to the rule with a beaming light surrounding her that attracts everyone!

As the lead vocalist and bassist for the indie hit rock band, Shingai is definitely what I’d call a game changer. The English and Zimbabwean artist was born in 1981 and used her music as a creative outlet while growing up. She states “Wanting to escape from reality can inspire the greatest and most trivial creative natures in people,” and “I think escapism is something that connects all of us. Everybody has their own little soundtrack, and I guess I’m trying to make my own soundtrack to my escape plan. I want people to realize that there’s so much more.”

Better known as Shingy, this undisputed talent has the kind of voice that literally pulls people in her direction. Her classic natural pin-up and funky fashion sense keeps fans and naysayers in awe. Often performing while barefoot with an energy that blankets the entire venue, Shingy has secured  her position as a true “one-of-a-kind” artist. Rolling Stone Magazine says “Shoniwa is a living, breathing manifestation of the rock & roll spirit, with a voice that is equal parts Iggy Pop and Billie Holiday.”

Rock it Out,  Shingy!

Miracles & Blessings,
