FUSING REGGAE, SOUL AND R&B TO MAKE HER OWN SOUND SHE CALLS "ROOTS SOUL"

Mid August 2020 SHYRICK DANCEHALL RADIO had a "LADIES NIGHT AT THE MIC". The station began shouting out a few weeks prior to all the ladies to get their tracks in for  the special presentation. Among many who answered the call was Chez Ford from " PUZZLE PIECE MUSIC PROMOTIONS" with a red hot lady hailing from the UK by the name of  MAKEDA SUNSHINE ( formerly known as  TESHAY MAKEDA.) 



The house was packed at LADIES NIGHT AT THE MIC, the program was visited by several thousand listeners over the 3 hour broadcast where SUNSHINE MAKEDA premiered with her track (off of her EP ) entitled MISSING YOU. Why not hit the >> GO BUTTON<<  and take a listen for yourself.


Music was a family thing for SUNSHINE MAKEDA, both her father ( a musician)   and mother ( a singer)  were actively involved in influencing SUNSHINE MAKEDA. With both parents being Rastafarians as well, Reggae no doubt became second nature to this artist as she grew up. 




SUNSHINE MAKEDA  was getting regular appearances in her community,  in choir and with various bands as she grew up and developed her craft. She admits that looking back Reggae kept her grounded.

Teshay’s inspirations include Bob Marley, Erykah Badu, and Lauryn Hill as well as  Chronixx and Janelle MonĂ¡e.



SUNSHINE MAKEDA released of her first acclaimed EP 'Teshay Makeda' in 2017 where the track MISSING YOU  sits on. We found the EP on BANDCAMP, check it out by following this link ... https://teshaymakeda.bandcamp.com/album/teshay-makeda-ep



Makeda’s single ‘OMG’ debuted in 2019 and was met with great response. Produced by Calvin Bennion A.K.A First Eye & James Shephard who are both active musicians in the UK Reggae Scene. The trio have come together merging and recreating the genre of roots with elements of Soul & RnB along with adding a message of spirituality.



‘OMG’ is a delightful taster of what is to come from her forthcoming EP Entitled ‘Omega Mother Goddess’.  Due in 2020 ‘Omega Mother Goddess’  seeks to explore the Roots and Soul of the 'Divine Feminine'. You can chech it out and drop it into your music collection by following this link ... 


SUNSHINE MAKEDA has performed on major stages in the UK and internationally including the 2018 Rototom Sunsplash Festival in Spain, and the inaugural Cross the Tracks Festival on home turf at Brixton's Brockwell Park in 2019 , Mekudeshet Festival Jerusalem 2019 and Villa Verde Ethiopia 2020. 



You are invited to join her on her Facebook page to stay ontop of  new releases and upcoming venues, once that gets kicked in again .
