Sham De Ré is a Songwriter/Producer and Creative Director of musical projects.
I have always loved music for as long as I can remember.
I started out as a DJ and still have a real love for Soul, Funk, and Hip Hop.
I also love all forms of Jazz and have been influenced by Bossa Nova, Cuban Jazz, Gypsy Jazz, Afro Beat and Salsa.
I write songs either from my own experiences, things that inspire me or even simply something from the human experience, but ultimately I write songs because I love it, I hope that brings a different vibe to the music.
The music has been a long time in the making, it has been a real labour of love, I hope you enjoy the music as much as I have in creating it!
My name is Sham, my persona is Sham De Ré, why?
Because the Isle De Ré in South Western France is one of my favourite places, a little unknown, but where there is a bit of old world charm and where the sun shines bright, this suits my personality and this hopefully reflects in my music, hence Sham De Ré!
I am a Londoner of British East African-Indian descent, with a very North West London upbringing of different cultures and musical influences..
I hope you enjoy the music, it should feed your soul!
