About: Shura is a singer, producer, remixer and video editor from Shepherd’s Bush in West London. She was born in Moscow to a Russian actress and an English documentary filmmaker.

Her passion for music came from her brother, who would DJ drum-and-bass at the weekends. Shura began building her own songs, immersing herself in the textured sounds of Janet Jackson, Blood Orange and early Madonna.

After her studies, Shura spent some time in South America, where her songwriting found its focus through contemplation of past relationships, future music, and walking pumas round The Amazon.

The first taste of music from Shura was Touch, a post-break-up anthem with a DIY video of her close friends kissing on camera, which hit the internet in February 2014 to wide acclaim.

With fans ranging from Jungle and Jessie Ware (who Shura recently remixed) to actress Chloe Moretz and Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens, attention now turns eagerly to the release of Shura’s forthcoming debut album on Polydor Records.
