"Shayna Leigh is a classic. She is the finest elements of the famed Brill Building era of songwriting personified. Like Carole King, Burt Bacharach, Carole Bayer Sager, Neil Diamond, and many others, she is truly a gifted artist with a distinctive voice." -

"A gem of an artist" - Artist Direct

About Shayna Leigh:
Originally from Orlando, Florida, Shayna Leigh was raised on The Beatles and Carole King, but was also a product of the boy band era. Her mixed influences stayed with her when she moved to New York City for college. Since then, Shayna has taken the musical pulse of the city and translated its long history into a sound that resonates throughout her debut EP, The Cold Hard Truth and the Dream. The EP, consisting of three original songs and produced by Mitchell Cohen (Columbia, Arista, and Verve Records) was released in January 2014 as a free download on The lyric video for her breakthrough single, "Next to Me", has received over 165,000 views on YouTube.
In 2013 while working on her debut EP, Shayna took to the road performing sold-out shows at Rams Head Tavern, The Living Room, Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall, World Café Live, and The Stephen Talkhouse. She has even made the hop across the Atlantic to perform in London, with Aquarian Weekly calling her tour "a triumph." Shayna's career has been marked by a steadfast determination to get her music out there, hopeful she can make a positive impact. "We all have a story to share and mine is woven in my music. I was taught that we are here not only to take care of ourselves, but to make other people's lives better. That doesn't mean forget your own dreams. It means be kind, be funny, smile. Make a positive impact. The world is changed in small positive gestures.  I do believe that."
Shayna's highly anticipated second EP, 'Hey Shayna Leigh', released September 9th, 2014. For the project she tapped the talents of noted songwriter Peter Zizzo (Celine Dion, Elizabeth Gillies), Grammy winning producer Michael Mangini, and Steely Dan's producer, Gary Katz. This summer Shayna released her uplifting single, "Drive (Back to Where You Lived)," to an amazing response, garnering her features on Huffington Post, American Songwriter, Artist Direct, PA Music Live, World Lifestyle, and more.
