Shena's vocal talents were first noticed at school by her music teacher and now she is one of the biggest voices in dance music and is in fact a dance-floor phenomenon. Indeed, she may have attended the Royal Academy of Music but everything else about her suggests that she is a prodigy of a different order. Since those heady days, Shena has filled her musical resume by working with artists like James Brown, Jocelyn Brown, Luther Vandross, Chaka Khan, Joss Stone, Sugababes and Amy Winehouse whilst providing central vocal roles on countless crossover dance hits (including ten Top 40 hits) such as Alex Gaudino’s ‘Watch Out’, De Souza’s monster track, ‘Guilty,’ and the massive Michael Gray dance floor hit ‘The Weekend’.
Incredibly Shena has performed live in fifteen cities in Russia alone and a typical weekend might encompass a three hour flight to Moscow followed by an eleven hour flight to Vladivostok where she is treated like a superstar. She’s also performed in countries like Moldova, Slovakia, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Serbia, Croatia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Belarus, Ukraine, Romania, Turkey, Malta, France, USA, Australia, Ireland, Scotland and Wales – and that’s just the ones she can remember! To put it bluntly, she is the original disco super-mum! Her album Twenty Seventy Nine was produced by husband James Winchester and features Shena’s last three singles including ‘Can’t Stop The Rain’, stomp-along anthem ‘My Fantasy’ and the heavenly hi-energy lament for togetherness that is ‘Nasty Little Rumour’. All three singles have received extensive support at national radio including extensive championing from Steve Wright, Terry Wogan and Ken Bruce.
