The Shae Williams Experience
"For a long time, I felt that the world wasn’t ready for a R&B artist like me. Once my fans found my EP online, they wanted more – they empowered me to do what I love most, I’m ready now.”- Shae Williams.
The most powerful stories are real. They’re the sagas that we grasp on to, learn from, and live with. Shae Williams tells her story in all its unfiltered, unabridged, and unrestrained glory through her music.
Soulful singer/songwriter/actress and Lake Charles, Louisiana native Shae Williams is a celebrated R&B recording artist whose debut single ‘Ready’ was independently released in 2015 peaked at #34 on US Urban AC Top 40 Chart and peaked at #3 on the Indie Urban AC Charts. Shae explains that Ready, is named for being ready to live fearlessly and love unapologetically, is about turning vulnerability into the power to fuel your own personal evolution. The rising star lays her sweet and soulful voiceover timeless melodies to give fans the experience of love’s ecstasy, rejection, and creating memories of dancing and singing along with the ones you love most.
“I’m ready for the world to get to know Shae. I’m letting go of the negative thoughts to connect with my fans
and they can see that.” -Shae Williams.
Shae teamed up with critically-acclaimed Grammy, Emmy, and Dove award-winning producers to create her debut album, Ready and also had a second single released in late 2015 along with a new Christmas track. To promote Ready, Shae toured the country headlining the Shae Williams Ready Tour and joining the I Love the Blues Tour 2015 featuring Lenny Williams, Shirley Jones of Jones Girls, J Wonn, Lacee, Chris Ivy, Stoney Murphy, Donna Renae & Dee Sounders. The rising star was greeted by fans as she traveled from Chicago for the 2015 Black Women’s Expo to Las Vegas and from Los Angeles to Beaumont, Texas. From the West Coast to Louisiana, Virginia, Alabama, and Mississippi– audiences sold out shows as Shae’s first single climbed the AC Urban charts! Guests who experience her live performances will hear the gospel influence in Shae’s soulful delivery as well as the pitch-perfect notes as suit of an academic classical background. Shae credits childhood choir director, Gladys McKnight, for exposing the eager talent to trailblazing female artists like Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Lauryn Hill and CeCe Winans. These legends influenced Shae’s desire to be a champion of confident, sexy and always classy women. Shae combined her gospel roots, classical training and sultry charm to mesmerize audiences in Music City’s competitive R&B circuit.
Now, at a time when some are questioning the viability of the genre of R&B music, it’s finally time for this multi-talent to take her deserved place in the spotlight. Ever since she was a young girl, Shae dreamed of being a singer, songwriter, producer and television star.
This past fall Shae went back to her Louisiana roots and released a fiery single "Zydeco” featuring Boosie Badazz. And has recently been on the road with some of the industry's hottest Hip Hop and R&B artist such as Tank, Ginuwine, Keith Sweet, K-C & JoJo, 112 Rick Ross, Jeezy, Plies, and more.
With no stranger to acting, BET featured play-wright, Alvin Moore was so impressed with her alluring stage presence that he quickly casted her in his production “A Mother’s Prayer” where she was seen by award winning play wright, Garret Davis.
Davis placed Shae in “If Loving You is Wrong”, the hit plays based Harper Collins’ bestselling author Nina Foxx’s book “Marrying Up”, “The Lord Will Make a Way”, “Forget Me Not”, and “Mamas Girls”.
She has been cast alongside key urban theater actors such as Garrett Jenkins (Little G of Silk), Calvin Richardson, Scott Sable (American Idol), Keith Floyd (After 7) and Ann Nesby. Most recently Shae was casted in the play “Before You Say I Do” starring opposite of actor Leon, comedian Rodney Perry and the legendary Regina Belle.
When Shae is not performing a drama or getting audiences up on their feet to a Shae original– she can be found in her home town of Lake Charles, Louisiana. In November 2014, the singer returned home and partnered with CHRISTIS St. Patrick Hospital where she founded the Annual Celebration of Life Cancer Awareness Showcase to raise funds for local cancer support programs. Shae was awarded with a Key to the City and honored with an official proclamation of Celebration of Life Day in Lake Charles. Everything Shae does is with total conviction, her debut album, charity concerts, and acting performances are no exception.
“All of us hold on to things and find ourselves feeling stuck but you have to go and stay true to yourself. I'm excited to take this new journey and I'm Ready to embrace my purpose in life!” #Ready -Shae Williams.
Be on the lookout for the release of her new single ‘EFF Love’ coming in 2018. ‘EEF’ Love delivers a straight-from-the-heart vocalizing track, telling truths about love, life and relationships and drawing on her own experiences of passion and pain.
All in all, Shae is a breath of fresh air in a music landscape cluttered with too much artifice, insincerity and half-baked vocalizing. Williams has never followed trends, so don't expect to hear her trying to mimic any. The music is hers and it’s the kind of music you want to take with you on a road trip, to the gym, and to the office. This songbird has authenticity and depth which is what Shae Williams is all about. Shae’s forthcoming EP will be released soon on Muse Music Group Label, LLC.
