Producer, Songwriter, Arranger and Artist are all incredible talents. Combined into one human being, and you get a humble yet extraordinary gift known simply as Shamora.
Shamora’s work with artists like Elton John, Mary J. Blige, J. LO, Blu Cantrell, Brandy, and Posh Spice have made her one of the industry’s most in-demand talents. Monica’s platinum certified album “After The Storm” in which Shamora wrote three songs “Hurts The Most”, “Breaks My Heart”, and “I Wrote This Song”, marked an exciting new chapter in her career. The songs some reviews noted as “outstanding” and” beautiful” propelled Shamora to the top of many artist’s and songwriter’s lists.
Her work with some of the industry’s top producers like: Toby Gad, Jermaine Dupri, Soulshock and Karlin, Darryl Simmons, Stargate, and more have helped sell millions. Her contributions to the Gospel group Virtue’s album Free, landed her a covenant Dove Award Nomination and further secured her place in history as a talent with limitless boundaries.
Soul Veteran Angie Stone’s new release, The Art of Love and War, contains three Shamora co-written songs. “These Are The Reasons” (not co-written by Ms. Stone), and the standouts “Take Everything In” and “Sometimes” reaching number 7 on Billboard’s Urban AC charts, highlighting yet another reign of accomplishments for this unrivaled talent. Factor in KeKe Wyatt’s new album, Ghetto Rose, with the Shamora penned single, “I’m A Hustler” f/Raheem Devaughn, and Bad Boy’s Cheri Dennis’, In and Out of Love, with the hit “Ooh Ooh”, and it’s evident that Shamora is truly phenomenal.
November 2010, Shamora’s career continued to reach heights that others only dream of with the release of her highly anticipated sophomore CD titled Substance Abuse.
In an industry with talent overflowing, it is easy to become lost in the shuffle. Yet as a Producer, Songwriter, Arranger, and Artist, Shamora proves her musical capacity and accomplishments will only get better over time.
