Australian Solo Tour

In October Shameem is hitting the road again, this time without her band, performing intimate solo shows and accompanying herself on the keyboard. She will be travelling up Australia’s east coast, doing 9 shows in 8 cities in 11 days. Tour dates and details are on Shameem’s gig page.


Off to the Great South again

Shameem (the full band) will once more be heading south to Albany and Denmark at the end of February to perform at their favourite regional venues. Show details are below and here.

Community Newspapers article 25/01/11

This article was published in various Community newspapers, including the Guardian Express, the Western Suburbs Weekly, the Southern Gazette, the Melville Times and the Cockburn Gazette. Article by Emilia Vranjes, photos by Will Russell.

Teen superstar Justin Bieber, Brit songbird Lily Allen and US rapper Sean Kingston all have YouTube and Myspace to thank for their rise to global fame, and perhaps another music industry fairytale could be unfolding right here in Perth.

Shameem Taheri-Lee may be an unknown now, but a UK song-writing stint scheduled for mid-this year with international songwriter and producer James Bryan could change all that. Bryan’s credits include Canadian pop/R&B artist Nelly Furtado’s career-making Grammy hits Like a Bird and Turn out the Lights.

Song Summit and other antics…

BLOG ENTRY 28/06/10

Last weekend saw me flying the red-eye over to Sydney for Song Summit – a conference for songwriters organised by APRA (the Australiasian Performing Rights Association, of which I’m a proud member). If you know you’re only going to get 4-hours sleep on the plane as you’re total dose of shut-eye for the night, I highly recommend the measures that I took: clothe yourself like an eskimo, don a sleep mask and secure one of those awesome neck pillows… and then, when walking around groggily in your destination airport, head straight for Boost Juice.

After the red-eye, on the bus from airport to hotel room.
