Born and raised in Michigan she started out performing in stage productions ranging from Beehive, Once on This Island, Dreamgirls, Wine in the Wilderness,and countless others even being cast as a replacement for Shenzi in Disney’s “The Lion King”. Once she moved to Chicago in 1998 she joined a few bands which led me to bassist and friend Lamar Jones (who was instrumental in the introduction to alot of the cats i now play and cowrite with) and began performing around the city.

With the knack for writing so finally was fortunate to meet up with Keith Henderson who co-wrote and guided her thru the first cd “The Many Moods of Me”.(check him out at Cd it has had extremely successful sales worldwide and with the help of many supportive friends and fans she been able to put on her own concerts, selling out the HotHouse and packing the PARKWEST to cap.

SHARAY REED (straight funky) G WIZ and a few other hot cats. Her influences range from Ella, Sade, Maysa and Lisa Stansfield to Stevie, Bob Marley, Annie Lennox, Mary J. Blige, Bonnie Raitt and Jill Scott.

She been compared to Toni Braxton, Lauryn Hill, Jill Scott, Lisa Stansfield and Randy Crawford. The 3 things that set her apart from other artist are

1. My high energy and comedic spirit,
2. my sound is my own,
3. My look is my own.

She headlined houses at HotHouse, ParkWest and other venues which was sould out, in which tickets were sold hand to hand as she gained a fanbase one listener at a time. It was hard but worth it which led her to complete “A Sound of My Own” which released 5/31/08.
