The addition of various instruments throughout the EP keeps the listener on their feet. From piano to flute to handclaps, Leigh manages to keep her music interesting yet not too complicated.” – The Celebrity Cafe

“A gem of an artist” Artist Direct

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 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.


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. 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.”
