Sheena O. Murray is a vocalist, songwriter, and actress currently based in West Palm Beach, FL. Born in Jamaica, she moved to the U.S. at a young age, during the time when R&B was searing the airwaves heavily and leaving little drops of musical fire into her soul. Her fondest musical memory as a child was listening to Whitney Houston and wanting to "sing like her". Growing up shy and reserved meant that the glowing embers were well-hidden. She had a growing passion for performance art which has lead her to a professional career in music and theater.
Her musical sound is soulful, soft, and sultry. One of the first things that people notice about her voice is her tonality. Her tone feels warm and velvety; an audio embrace. Her lyrics are thoughtful and often romantic; they are decisive and descriptive. An alto. Sometimes a soprano. Just give her the mic.
Creating music was a singular passion for quite a number of years, so when she decided to jump "voice first" into professional musical theater as an adult, landing her first professional role as a co-star after her very first audition, came as a surprise. Adding actress to her repertoire is something that she touts proudly: most recently playing Rosa Parks in “Walk On: the Story of Rosa Parks” (which toured the eastern United States).
Performing in theatrical productions has developed her voice and expressions and she has begun to apply them to her music. Adding color, passion, and drama into her compositions have opened up a new creative world for her. She wants the audience to be transported whenever she performs. She wants them to believe in the moment and take it with them, hold onto it. She creates experiences that people want to relive.
Her most notable and recent accomplishment is peaking at #2 on the Amazon UK R&B Charts with “Sending My Love”.
If you were to ask her, she'd tell you that she is her most authentic self on stage.
