Born in Rochester, NY to Israeli parents, Shira split her time growing up between Israel and the States.
Shira met producer Paul Carbonara (Blondie) as a performer in New York’s vibrant theatre community. She starred in his Off Broadway musicals Solitary Light and Evening 1910 to much critical acclaim. The New York Times noted Shira's performance for her "winning and beguiling voice" and her "enigmatically expressive smile."
Shira went on to record two EPs 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 calls her sound fairy-folk; infused with her sensational ukulele stylings, her music is reminiscent of powerhouse singer-songwriters like Sara Bareilles, Brandi Carlile and Ingrid Michaelson.
