Our December cover girl and local musician, Shye, is currently in New York City for an amazing milestone — she’s currently featured on a massive Spotify billboard, right in the middle of Times Square. And we’re rejoicing right with her.
The multi-talented singer, song-writer and producer shared the news on an Instagram post where her excitement was palpable. “Being here and seeing it in the flesh with my own eyes, this is CRAYZZZZ!” said the accomplished 19-year-old.
She then went on to thank Spotify, acknowledging that the billboard feature is part of the music streaming company’s EQUAL campaign, which aims to spotlight women in music. “THANK U for hearing and increasing the volume of our voices. OUR music speaks and it has power to make a difference,” she continued. From bedroom to billboard indeed.
