I think if someone asked me, “What’s the best gig of your life so far?” I would have to say that this one takes the cake! What an honour to be the support act for someone who is not just an international music sensation, but a great musician with great longevity and someone whose work I personally admire and whose music I would count among my influences.

Supporting George Benson

Shameem is thrilled to announce that she will be supporting Jazz/ R&B icon George Benson‘s show in Perth on Saturday 24th August.

Since becoming a global phenomenon in 1976 with Breezin’ (the first Jazz album to reach #1 on the Pop charts and achieve Platinum status), George has been honoured with ten Grammy Awards and is acknowledged as a Jazz Master (America’s National Endowment for the Arts highest accolade).

This show is almost sold out; the last tickets are available here. George Benson’s show is presented by Mellen Events.

Supporting Beside Lights!

Shameem is very excited to announce that she will be supporting Perth’s new rock sensation Beside Lights at their show on September 21st at Perth’s hottest new venue, the C5 (upstairs from Metropolis Fremantle). Also joining the lineup are Triple J favourites Stillwater Giants. Tickets are onsale now through Ticketmaster and Oztix – get in now to avoid disappointment!

With over 1 million hits on YouTube and more than 10,000 fans across Facebook & Twitter, Perth-based indie rockers Beside Lights are continuing to impress audiences right across Australia with their well crafted songs and engaging live performances. The overwhelming response to the band on social media such as Facebook, Youtube & Twitter resulted in their debut EP topping the iTunes rock charts several times, peaking at #1.
