Biography

United Kingdom

1) Shena is a simplification of Shèna, a mononym of Shèna Winchester (nee Tracey Elizabeth McSween), a UK singer-songwriter.

Shèna’s got soul, and we mean the good, vintage stuff. The English singer-songwriter is a brand new solo star in the making, but steeped in experience at the same time. In 2009, after many years of making other artists sound good, she’s seizing the limelight for herself.

She’s filled her musical resumé with stellar credits, including central vocal roles on countless crossover dance hits and sessions for James Brown, Luther Vandross, Chaka Khan, Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse and many others. But now, the dues have been paid in full, and Shèna is on a mission to give soul music a good name — her own.

The journey to creative independence has been hard-won, as has the opportunity to be the artist she really wants to be. With partner, co-writer, producer and manager James Winchester, Shèna has launched her own indie label, No Prisoners, and reaped an early, much-deserved reward, with the typically uplifting nu-disco single ‘Can’t Stop The Rain’ dancing straight onto the Radio 2 playlist. It’s a perfect preview of her new album ‘One Man Woman.’

The album is both a masterclass in goodtime 21st century pop-dance and a stylish reworking of the hedonistic disco sound of a generation ago. Songs like ‘A Love Sensation,’ ‘Don’t Get Me Wrong’ and ‘Sex Factor’ have melodies and lyrics to move you in every sense, plus completely contemporary production values and real strings and brass.
