Along with Daley, Ed Sheeran, Jessie J and others, electro-soul artist Shanaz Dorsett is an artist a part of this current “British soul invasion”, and one who deserves to be heard. Take “Four Walls & A Garden”; utilizing a Dr. Dre sample and tongue-in-cheek lyrics, Shanaz captures your ears with her unique delivery and storytelling.
Dorsett was raised in London to a Turkish mother and Caribbean father, and later moved to a gritty suburb in Houston, Texas. She writes on heavy issues of being a woman which people rarely speak about, subjects ranging from body image to daddy issues.
“Four Walls & A Garden” is off of her upcoming EP, Mother Tongue, out this October.
