Shawnee Taylor was born with music in her veins. A product of parents who each had their own successful music careers, Shawnee was surrounded by music from birth, and raised in a household that always had different genres of music playing within it.
At only sixteen years of age, it was a random meeting with DJ Romain that saw the beginning of Shawnee’s recording career, and it was through this initial set of collaborations, first with the RoMatt production team (DJ Romain and Matt Echols), as well as with Richard Grey, Kid Crème, DJ Todd Terry, and Sandy Rivera, that her voice first began to become recognized in House music.
“I think at the time, my voice was new, and as a singer-songwriter, when I sing there is an emotional connection that comes through because
those are my words, my feelings that I am singing. I also understood what the team was trying to create, which allowed me to bring more to the table than just my voice. Even after all of these years, I am still humbled by the amazing producers and artists who have reached out to work with me because of how much they value what I can offer to any collaboration.”
