Shaina Shepherd


Inspired by the parallels between gospel and garbage metal, Shaina Shepherd is not your average vocalist. Living in the city where both Soundgarden and Quincy Jones cut their teeth, Shaina lends her soulful voice to projects of all genres. 

Shaina Shepherd is a singer/songwriter and vocal coach based in Seattle, WA. Known for her pervasive style as front woman to soul- grunge band BEARAXE, her notable vocal stylings have brought her into various creative spaces — from sharing stages with rock stars like Kim Thayil, Dave Matthews and Duff McKagan to being a soloist with the classical ensembles around the country. Her solo style connects the lush storytelling of classical motifs with the stirring presence of soul music to create a vintage sound that honors the great songwriters of her generation in a sound all her own.
