TV debut!


So recently I rocked up to the West TV studios on a freeeezing cold morning… was bundled through make-up and then whisked into their chilly warehouse-like back studio, among some other hot new acts from WA, to do an interview with these lovely people – Nikkita and Antonio. If you’re impatient, skip ahead to 06:17 to catch me!

“Shameem Taheri-Lee” – Time Off (Brisbane) article, 25/07/12


With the release of her debut, self-titled album, Perth songstress Shameem Taheri-Lee is proving to be Australia’s answer to Alicia Keys. Tony McMahon investigates.

“I actually had recorded an EP back in 2009,” Taheri-Lee says, putting into context the approach she took to her debut album. “The EP was recorded more like a jazz project – we did three takes for each song, and then chose the best take. With this album we took more time and put a bit more consideration into production. Also, when we went to record the album, the band had been together for much longer and we’d performed and fleshed out the songs much more than we did before the EP recording… so the arrangements are more mature.”

“Shameem: Soulfully Fresh” – Scene Magazine (Brisbane) article, 25/07/12


By Lady Lex

Nothing can equal the dynamism of a stage of musicians blowing their horns, banging the drums, beating the bass and hitting the keys with a gorgeous jazz singer who writes her own lyrics out front with a Shure S52 in hand.

The process for live music is an organic beast: it’s a development that begins with learning the craft by stitching together the music – writing the lyrics, bringing the musicians together, laying all that work down on a track before performing it to an audience.

In this weary world where cheek has replaced charm, talent is revered at the push of a button and the word ‘band’ is often confused with a multitude of dancing singers. So, it’s a breath of fresh air when a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist blows into town with a band of musicians in tow. And this breath of fresh air is Shameem Taheri-Lee.

“Have You Heard Shameem” – Drum Media (Sydney) article 24/07/12


Your music is…? Soul with a 90s sensibility, infused with jazz flavours and elements of 70s funk!

Which acts inspired you to produce your own music and why? Sting and Michael Jackson – what great songwriters!, Alicia Keys – ‘cause she plays piano and sings soul, Erykah Badu and Jill Scott – it’s R&B with a respectful nod to jazz, and way back in the day it was Jewel – a good poet and a real storyteller.
