There’s definitely something going on in Australia at the moment…. the soul is flowing thick and fast! Already this year we’ve had a great album from Cooking On 3 Burners and just lately young soulstress Senani set heads turning with her infectious single, ‘Free’. Hot on their heels is a third Anitopdean soul goodie from a big new talent, SHAMEEM.
Shameem (Taheri-Lee) is a mixed race Aussie whose musical preference is the soul of the 70s which she re-interprets through 90s groove sensitivities creating a thoroughly contemporary sound. Hear it at its best on her latest single, the ultra-catchy ‘Beautiful Soul’. The tune’s built around some tight beats and features some cool piano and an ear-worm of a chorus. The vocal is spot on and the whole package stands comparison with one of Shameem’s heroines, Alicia Keys.
‘Beautiful Soul’ is taken from the lady’s soon to be released sophomore album and it makes soul sense to keep an eye on Shameem in particular and Australia in general.
