About Shanaya

As someone who has been singing from the time she could talk, rising singer/songwriter, Shanaya Patel, from Toronto, is on a path of bringing her music mainstream.

Shanaya wrote her first song at 11 years old, where she really began her musical journey.  She performs professionally across Toronto and has performed at venues such as Danforth Music Hall, the Opera House, Living Arts Centre, Burlington Centre for the Performing Arts and Yonge and Dundas Square. Shanaya has had appearances on CHCH Morning Live Show for Live Music Fridays, the Burlington RibFest and TD Toronto Jazz Festival for many years.

​She has traveled around North America to perform at many venues including The People’s Health Jazz Market in New Orleans. Shanaya’s YouTube cover of “Issues” by American singer/songwriter Julia Michaels was nominated for MTV’s Cover of the Month in March of 2017 and reached over 4.1 million votes.

With various influences of pop, R&B and jazz, many artists have influenced Shanaya such as Ariana Grande, Alicia Keys, Adele, Shawn Mendes, Ed Sheeran, Drake, Justin Beiber, H.E.R. but also Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James and Frank Sinatra.

The backdrop of the city of Toronto is and has always been a huge inspiration to Shanaya.  “I love how creative this city is – there is music, art and diversity everywhere. I am lucky to know and collaborate with so many artists and great figures in the industry that have made me open my mind and hone my skills as a musician.

“Bringing my emotions and vulnerability into my songs is hard – for anyone, but it makes for more powerful song writing.”

What’s next for Shanaya?  “I am excited to share a lot more music in the coming months – I hope that my songs inspire other people, bring them something to be hopeful for, empower them and just celebrate life.”
