Shameem performs as part of the 3rd Perth International Jazz Festival at The Laneway Lounge, a hidden gem tucked in a laneway off Murray Street opposite Shaftos Lane. Tickets are $15 at the door only; table bookings are available at the "ticket" link above. Presented by Perth Jazz Society.
Having just released her sophomore album "The Second City" and undertaken a national Australian tour, this performance at PIJF will be Shameem's first after returning from shows in Toronto at Canadian Music Week. You may know Shameem’s voice from her track “Turn It On” which has been featured in a major advertising campaign all over Western Australian primetime TV. Born in Australia to a Chinese-Malaysian father and an Iranian mother, this bubbly vocalist and songwriter enchants her audiences with her heartfelt, personal stories and spiritual influences in her songs. Shameem has supported such artists as George Benson, Ronan Keating, Belinda Carlisle and Anthony Callea and keeps a busy performing schedule. Her music is often compared to that of such artists as Alicia Keys, Mary J Blige and Sade.
To see what all the fuss is about, check out Shameem as she presents an evening of her unique concoction of soul, R&B and jazz with her hard-grooving band. Featuring: Shameem Taheri-Lee – vocals/ Owen Evans – Guitar/ Harry Mitchell – keys/ Joe Powell – bass/ Bronton Ainsworth – drums.
