SHIRA Releases “Butterflies” Internationally


New York-based singer/songwriter SHIRA is set to release her single “Butterflies” internationally in February 2018. The track had previously been featured in the indie feature film Landing Up and has become a firm live favourite. The track is the latest single from the wonderful debut album “Till The Sun Comes”, which was produced by Paul Carbonara, formerly of seminal band Blondie.

Shira says of the track: "For the longest time I couldn't really feel anything after my dad passed away. Then I met this guy... and it was obvious that this was a romance, that this was not THE guy, but for a magic moment I felt my heart opening up and it just reminded me that- oh, this can happen to me again! Even after the worst thing you can ever imagine, happens. I can love."

Born in Rochester, NY, Shira split her time growing up between Washington D.C. and Tel Avivdue to her parents job commitments. A true child of the world, from an early age she was drawn to music and acting as a way to make a connection and these twin passions would accompany her throughout her life.

Shira recently starred in the new Off Broadway musical, EVENING-1910 at Axis Theatre to rave reviews. Prior to that, she played the lead in the Off-Broadway production of Solitary Light where she met award winning guitarist and longtime music director of Blondie, Paul Carbonara. As they worked on the musical, which Carbonaraco-wrote and arranged, a special music bond was created and Paul signed on to produce Shira’s debut album.

The album was recorded live in a big room in one of the oldest studios in New York City. It was here, a few steps away from John Coltrane’s personal RCA ribbon microphone, a 9’1” Steinway Grand from the stage at Carnegie Hall and Peter Gabriel’s multitrack recorder from the sessions for “So”, that the tracks from “Till The Morning Comes” came to life.
