Shylah Ray Sunshine
Shylah Ray Sunshine
Shylah Ray Sunshine is an award-nominated influential vocalist, musician, mother and activist. An Algonquin native of Canada, a move to California transpired creativity after years of singing karaoke, open mics, world travel and the birth of her first daughter at home. She began writing and sharing her music in the Los Angeles area, which would lead her to rapid success by composing a range of music that would be featured in film, documentaries and several social media platforms to be recognized.

Blending grooves of Neo Soul, R&B, Reggae and Hip-hop, Shylah has inspired audiences with her gospel-like voice and moving lyrics. Her hit single “Existence” has been used in dozens of advertisements, was nominated for a Hollywood Music in Media award (Best Song with Message/Social Impact) and is loved all around the globe. Self-taught vocally, on piano, percussion and a student of traditional African drumming, the demand for her presence and music grows as she continues to reach new levels of creative stardom. She has starred in the classical Broadway musical RENT and working on new acting roles, as well as starting her own music production.

She serves the community as a vocal coach, offering Soul Voice Singing sessions, and is Creative Director of a non-profit, which provides and promotes sexual education and empowerment in schools. Her musical projects have fueled a multitude of singles, shows, the recent release of her first full album “Into the Wild” and larger scale opportunities ahead including touring, new tracks with collaborative artists, more music videos and the release of a new EP, coming in late 2018.
Shylah Ray hopes to inspire and uplift many generations to come by using the power, passion and pleasure of singing and performing.
