ShyEden is a Zimbabwean emerging artist, a very loving and passionate young lady, God fearing and empowering. I’m not perfect even though I try to be most of the time because strong and independent is who I am.
When did your music journey start?
My music journey started in 2016, I joined Zimpraise in that year and made friends with someone who then introduced me to the music school I would then attend. However, I started performing professionally when i got my first slot (Gig) at Queen of Hearts where I perform regularly now. That has been a platform to showcase and market my gift, it has opened doors for other experiences and it’s truly been an amazing experience. which I’m grateful to God for.
Which artists inspire you the most?
Ariana Grande 🖤
As well as a wide range of other singers. I listen to different artists and genres because I’m not in the same mood every day or moment, so music is meant to make you feel.
How would you describe your style of music?
I am more of a Soul singer (I write from my soul), but I am crazy about POP &EDM which you’ll hear in my latest single with UNION5- How Do You. You get the house side of me and the RNB side of me and a bunch of mixed emotions.
Where does the inspiration for your songs come from?
Funny enough and very cliché, experience, but on a serious note I usually write what I feel in the moment.
What do you hope people will get from listening to your music?
To be truly moved. To be carried by my voice and stirred by my lyrics.
Who have been your favourite artists to work with and who would you like to work with in the future?
My favourite artist to work with has been Union5, we have a number of projects that we’ve worked on. For future collaborations I would love to go global. Starting here at home but international is where my heart is.
What inspired your latest track, How Do You?
This one is personal; I was dating a bad boy like BAD in every sense of the word.
What can we expect from you for the rest of the year?
This year I pray I get to release 2 more singles as I prepare for my EP.
How are you keeping yourself busy during the lockdown?
•I have been working out
•Learning new ways of developing and boosting my social media on YouTube and other educational videos on YouTube.
•Spending time with family
•Writing new songs
What is the soundtrack to your life?
I’m not sure, but I sing and dance to my own tune.
How would you like to be remembered?
As a young lady who inspired many and spoke to people through her music and as a lady who empowered many.
