If you're a fan of electropop music in the UK, you'll love Shura, one of today's best singers, songwriters, and music producers. Born in Manchester, Shura has been making music since 2011, when she released her first single, "River." Since then, Shura has learned to record and produce tracks, and she has also been signed to Universal Music in the UK.
Shura is hitting the road this year, traveling through Europe and bringing her catchy electronic music to loads of people. She will launch her tour at the Paradiso in Amsterdam, followed by stops in Sint Joost Ten Node, London, Helsinki, Ibiza, Tonsberg, Grafenheinichen, Suffolk, Novalja, Copenhagen, Biddinghuizen, Hamburg, Portmeiron, Stradbally, and Ilse of Wight. She'll finish up her travels in London, where she will play a show at Electric Brixton.
While Shura was always sure she wanted to make music, she didn't jump into her career right away. In fact, after University, Shura took a gap year to travel and get more life experience. She moved to the Amazon rainforest, where she not only worked and saw the sights, but also further developed her musical skills, which would ultimately serve her career when she came back to her native UK.
Born in Manchester to an actress and a filmmaker, Shura always expressed an interest in creating music. She learned to play the guitar when she was only 13, and she wrote and recorded her own songs by the time she turned 16. In 2011, Shura released her first single, "River," which was also included on producer Hiatus' album, Parklands. After working with Hiatus for a while, Shura decided it was time to break out on her own, and she learned to use music production equipment. Since then, she has released several singles and music videos and has been signed to Polydor Records and Universal Music Publishing Group.
While Shura had released music before, it was her 2014 track, "Touch," that really got her noticed by music critics and blogs. That song got people paying attention to her next single, "Just Once," and the ones following it. Her electronic music got her chosen by the BBC Sound of 2015 poll, and now listeners are awaiting her full-length album.
While her work with Hiatus was successful, Shura became famous for her own debut track, "Touch." This is the song that got her noticed by music critics and fans alike. Shura has since released popular singles "Say You Love Me," and "Indecision," which have hundreds of thousands of plays and downloads.
Shura specializes in electronic dance music, so expect anyone with Shura tickets to be ready to move at one of her concerts. Many of her shows attract fans of dubstep music, so people will be ready to party the night away. Expect a dark venue, bright, flashing lights, and an unstoppable beat if you're going to see Shura perform live."
