Spinning a web of downtempo beats, etherial orchestration, and a powerfully pure vocal style, Shaprece - flanked by producer IG88 and orchestral arranger Phillip Peterson - has become a recognized name in the recent Trip-Hop Revivalist movement and beyond. She has garnered early support and mentions from KEXP, SPIN, The New York Times, Revolt TV, City Arts Magazine, and many more. Her upcoming debut full length album 'COALS' is set to solidify her as one of the most engaging and forward thinking artists of her genre.
Shaprece's calculated release of material has only helped build the mystique around her. With the 2014 releases of the 'Tell Me // Her Song' split single, and her critically acclaimed 'Molting' EP she reintroduced herself to the world, laying the foundation for what's to come. 'COALS' is a natural progression but a major step forward in style and substance. The album, which she debuted event in full at a live listening with the Seattle Symphony, will feature 11 tracks mixed by Kyle Ross (Kanye West, Rita Ora, John Legend) including the stand outs "Unwind" and "Send Down Your Love."
Building upon appearances at Bumbershoot, CMJ, Sasquatch Music Festival, Decibel Festival and dates with the likes of Thievery Corporation, Deltron 3030, The Antlers, SZA, and Daley, Shaprece is kicking off 2016 ready to show the world that it's time to take notice.
