Biography:


Shimmer is Europe’s biggest new female rap artist, with her sexy sound and style; this empowering performer is taking the UK by storm. Currently hard at work recording her debut album, Shimmer’s anticipated release offers an alternative, yet angles on the highs and lows of the London lifestyle.

From a very early age it became evident that a fondness for music was undeniable. Shimmer wrote her first song at eight and could often be found at the piano, an old music book in hand, desperately trying to figure out the various keys. Shimmer soon realised that during periods of childhood isolation, that a pen and writing pad offered both a powerful and effective means of comfort. Writing and reciting the various patterns lifted them from their pages allowing them, in turn, to lift her spirits. Often when Shimmer felt shafted from the world around her, she would run to her bedroom and try to make sense of the forbidding scenery, toying with images, translating them into short stories and poems, painting various beats with the colours of her thoughts.

Having developed considerably, Shimmer has performed at top London venues, such as Heaven, Club Life, Stanza and established grime raves, such as, the NASA Stage show. Shimmer has the outstanding ability to crossover, offering extensive charisma, style and intellect, whilst still delivering a satirical take on Urban London. Highly individual, Shimmer has become a wanted cameo and has taken up offers to feature in videos for various high profile MC’s, and also appeared on Channel AKA’s, The Illest Show.

Shimmer manages to boast extensive sex appeal yet demands a furious respect from her contemporaries, collaborating with a multitude of artists and producer's on the UK Grime and Hip-Hop scene. Renowned producer Renz is one of Shimmer’s main Producer and has worked closely with her, helping shape and inspire tracks, such as her first video release “Baby”, the vintage, baseball inspired extravaganza, directed by Sheridan De Myers. “Baby” aired on numerous radio stations from Kiss to Choice FM and the video received continuous rotation on top TV stations such as MTV Base. Shimmer also works along side producer Ayo, with phenomenal beats and produces for highly regarded rappers from the UK to the US, and produced Shimmers second release “Can You Handle It” and “P*ssy”.

Shimmer adores being in the studio making new tracks and writing her thoughts to share with her fellow audience, with also a passion for being on stage, entertaining a live crowd. This makes Shimmer strive in pursuing her rap career and showing the world, what she can do, who she is and what she is made of.
