Our Undiscovered Spotlight artist, Shenna, was born and raised in Virginia before tackling the music scene in New York City. She describes her style as indie pop with R&B influence, and we couldn’t agree more after listening to some of her music. Her first album ‘Made of Gold’ was released in 2016 and some of its songs have been featured on MTV, VH1, Oxygen, CMT and more. Shenna’s music is infectious, powerful, relatable and just overall great. Different facets of her unique voice are shown on each track of hers. ‘Riot’ is a pump-up anthem that shows her vocal dominance, while ‘Magenta’ is infectious, poppy and smooth.
