Under One Sun – lyrics

Under One Sun

It takes just one moment, just one dream
‘Cause you know we all need to be loved
We come from one ancestor, just one forefather
And one earth mother, under one sun

We are but one, we are but one
Don’t you know that everyone’s dreaming under one sun?

“Under One Sun” music video: the art

So, you’re probably wondering: is everything in Shameem’s “Under One Sun” video really made of paper? How did they make such big paper trees and buildings? And what about that painting right at the end of the video?

Some time ago, I came across the work of paper cut artist Renee Farrant, who lives in Albany (about 5 hours drive south of Perth in Western Australia). All of her work is created by cutting paper into shape to create delicate and intricate pieces of art. She creates such pretty and fine little things that I’ve always marvelled at how long it must take her to do one piece!

Brand new single – Under One Sun

Shameem_UnderOneSun_single_cover_higresShameem is stoked to announce the release of her brand new single “Under One Sun”! “Under One Sun” is now available for purchase on iTunes. The track was co-written with and produced by Grammy-winning UK-based producer James Bryan, who has worked with such artists as Nelly Furtado, Olly Murs and James Morrison.

Ever true to Shameem’s mission to encourage social and spiritual consciousness, the lyrics of the song carry an important message of unity. The track has a bright, soul-pop feel, with a hint at the soulful grooves of Stevie Wonder and the rich harmonies of D’Angelo.

The captivating video, in which EVERYTHING is made of paper, was produced by up and coming Perth director Jason Eshraghian. It was created in collaboration with Western Australian artists Renee Farrant, who created all the paper objects in the video including Shameem’s outfit, and Phil Doncon, who created the painting that is featured in the video’s narrative.
