About SHURA

Alexandra Lilah Denton, better known by her stage name Shura, is an English singer, songwriter and producer. Shura had been a promising footballer in her youth and played for Manchester City from under 11 to under 16 level. While reading English Literature at University College London, she formed a band with guitarist Patrick Duncombe and collaborated with producer Hiatus (Cyrus Shahrad). Following her work with Hiatus, Shura decided to assume creative control over the production of her music. During night shifts at her workplace (a video editing facility), she watched YouTube tutorial videos on how to use music production software. Her single “Touch”, co-produced with Joel Pott of Athlete, drew positive notice from internet blogs during early 2014; its music video was co-directed and edited by Shura herself. Two other singles, “Just Once” and “Indecision”, followed the same year, and Shura produced a remix of Jessie Ware’s single “Say You Love Me”. Shura was longlisted in the BBC Sound of 2015 poll.Shura is also signed to Universal Music Publishing Group in the United Kingdom.18 She released the single “2Shy” in March 2015, followed by “White Light” and a performance film titled Three Years in June 2015. An EP titled White Light was released in the United States in July.The same year, Shura performed at music festivals including Bestival, Festival N°6, and Latitude.
