Shira is a NYC based folk singer-songwriter.
a true fairy troubadour.
With a "beguiling voice" (NYTimes) and "a string of epic songs, heaven sent vocals and intricate playing...." (Brokelyn) NYC based Israeli-American singer-songwriter and actress, Shira, “is a leading name that will stop you dead in your tracks... "(Philly Weekly).
Shira calls her sound fairy-folk; infused with her sensational ukulele stylings, her music is reminiscent of powerhouse singer-songwriters like Ingrid Michaelson or Sara Bareilles.
Shira met producer Paul Carbonara (Blondie) as a performer in New York’s vibrant theatre community. After working together on two Off Broadway musicals they went on to record two albums of Shira's music produced by Carbonara along with an ace six-piece band, including Grammy-nominated drummer Dan Pugach. The 1st one, Till the Sun Comes and the new EP, Birds of a Feather. Together they created a live folk-acoustic sound so raw you could almost hear the wooden floors creaking under their feet.
Shira anticipates that her upcoming songs resonate in the same way first single “Usually” has, about the excitement of something good on the horizon. She hopes to share a message of hope, in the same way those first records she owned did for her.
Her latest single Wait for me, was featured on ABC news.
Shira has been selected to perform at MUSEXPO Creative Summit Showcase in Los Angeles in March 2022.
Shira is endorsed by Kala Ukuleles.
