SHANTÉH, the artist, song­writer and pro­du­cer from South Lon­don is no stranger to the music industry. Hav­ing provided vocals for stars such as Emeli Sandé, Jah­méne Douglas and Ann Nesby, she now gears up to release her new LP ‘I.D’ drop­ping on 6th Octo­ber.

The album is a son­ic cul­min­a­tion of everything that has inspired her to be who she is today as a musi­cian. From the dance­hall-inspired vocals on the high octane single ‘No Ceil­ings’ to the reg­gae styl­ings of ‘Good Thing’, the love of her Jamaic­an roots is clear through­out. She also draws on her time singing in a gos­pel choir with the lush arrange­ments and soar­ing har­mon­ies heard on the album open­er ‘Black Nec­tar’.

On the album she says, “it is the beau­ti­ful cre­ation that came out of my jour­ney. It’s about my roots and cul­ture, my her­it­age, my faith, my con­fid­ence, my city and my art, all tied togeth­er by the love of my friends and fam­ily.”

Music runs in Shantéh’s blood. Her grandpa and his broth­er were part of sound sys­tems in Jamaica, her moth­er was a drum­mer and now a radio DJ, and her young­er sis­ters are both musi­cians. This highly music­al envir­on­ment has shaped her sound, cul­min­at­ing in four EPs and the aptly titled ‘I.D’ — an aud­ible timeline of how her sound became what it is.
