Through songwriting Sherika vows to encourage the conversations that make us vulnerable. From charming one liners to heart-felt confessions Sherika uncovers our complex journeys through a celebration of acceptance and continuously warms the hearts of her listeners. Born and raised in South London, it was after listening to Marvin Gaye Sherika came to realise she also wanted to discover her deepest emotions through performance and songwriting.
After dropping out of University Sherika decided to put her faith and determination to the test by becoming a full-time busker, as well as becoming a well-known performer on the London music scene regularly invited onto the stages of many prestigious venues including Ronnie Scott's, Jazz Cafe, Shoreditch House and The Century Club, Sherika has also gone on to take several international bookings including The Seychelles, Senegal and Norway.
Last year British Soul Singer Seal suprised Sherika with a visit while she was busking on the Southbank, they performed two duets and Seal went on to invite her to open for 2 of his shows at Old Royal Naval College (London) and Cirque Royal (Brussels). This year Legendary Film director Spike Lee also showed his appreciation for Sherika’s talent by personally picking her original song “We Don’t Need a Reason” to feature of his Netflix Series of “She’s Gotta Have it”.
After independently releasing her Album “Just Saying” and this years E.P “Patience and Fears” Sherika is focused on her next move; to release and self produce her up and coming releases. She is a clear example of how the industry has changed, with a strong connection to her fans and regularly performing and interacting with new ones, she has become a personality people can relate to.
