XENIA DUNFORD (Boston, MA) Americana, Folk, Jazz, Rock, Roots, Singer-Songwriter; Similar to: Norah Jones, Colbie Caillat, A Fine Frenzy, Corinne Bailey-Rae

With a daring and adventurous mix of jazz, indie and classic pop influences, singer-songwriter Xenia Dunford has played countless shows across the U.S. from Boston to Los Angeles. The buzz is starting to grow for Dunford after “Killing Kind of Love” from her debut EP was used in ABC’s Revenge Season 2 Promo. The excitement will only increase in 2013 once people hear her debut full length album His & Hers. www.xeniadunfordmusic.com

SHAMEEM (Australia) Funk, Jazz, R&B, Soul. Similar To: Alicia Keys, Sade, Corrine Bailey-Rae, Michael Jackson.

Shameem Taheri-Lee was born in Australia to a Chinese-Malaysian father and an Iranian mother. The diversity of her heritage has not only contributed to her exotic looks but has influenced her distinctive eclectic approach to music. Her unique fusion of 90s-esque R&B/ soul with 70s funk and a twist of jazz is imbued with personal and conscious lyrics. Think: Alicia Keys meets Sade in a jazz club, with a little edge of Michael Jackson. www.shameemmusic.com
