Shanae grew up in the Hamilton Square development and attended Public School No. 2 – both located in the Historic District of Paterson, New Jersey – an area replete with century-old, still functioning brick mills reminiscent of a bygone era, which provided the backdrop for Shanae’s formative years. Fast forward to today, this burgeoning recording artist’s ability to tell a story using her voice through song creates a setting you can vividly see in your mind's eye. Shanae understands that music can resonate with people in a profound way, which is why she uses her talents to extol and inspire 'positive relationships'. "If I can make you stop, reflect, and feel good about loving someone, through my music, then my mission is complete."
