Shelita Burke made her first appearance in the pop music scene going viral and charting #14 on Billboard’s Next Big Sound Chart in February 2017. Raised in Seattle, as a teenager, she left for Europe to pursue a music career and tour the world.
“The past couple of years have been a complete reinvention of me as an artist” Burke says. Shelita was invited by saxophonist Scott Page (Pink Floyd) to appear on his popular Business Rockstars Show in LA. This led to an industry showcase performance, where she earned the attention of the Producer, Bellringer , who has worked with megastars like Nicki Minaj and Timbaland . Shelita soon moved to L.A., where her new EP “Special” was born. The concept of the EP and the title song “Special” was born out of a collaboration with UK based music industry executive Nick Halkes who was a founder of the incredible XL recordings label (Adel, M.I.A) and then architected the dance/electronic business for EMI in the UK.
Shelita feels “In this new music industry every artist needs to understand data science and use all mediums of artistic expression to reach and understand their audience.”
