shey baba About
In an age when music tends to feel rushed, Shey Baba is an anomaly – he takes his time. The Los Angeles born singer/songwriter/producer decided to spend two years in isolation patiently making what would become his stunning debut album – -Requiem.
I didn’t start singing or writing songs until I was 20, but once I did I quickly realized that music was the only way I could fully express the things I needed to.
A series of difficult personal and family tribulations fueled the flames, and shey baba set out to create a labor of love and catharsis. Almost 24 months later, Requiem is complete. His voice stands out above all, setting the tone for the cinematic and emotive sound of the album. Releasing his first song in October, the title-track “Requiem”, shey has managed to rack up over 250,000 streams across Spotify & Apple Music, and several dozen spins on KCRW (spearheaded by Jason Bentley’s support) as well as KXRN, WRIR, and KXSU. After releasing “Requiem”, shey was tapped as direct support for Susanne Sundfør’s North American tour.
