Born and raised in Orlando, FL, Shayna Leigh grew up in the world of commercials and community theatre. Upon finishing high school, she left home for the big city...New York (the first love of her life)... to study musical theatre at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. Upon graduating, Shayna worked as musical theatre actress (and also sometimes as that chatty employee of Ann Taylor Loft) before deciding it was time to take her career in her own hands. Remembering a buried dream of performing as herself, singing her own songs (a dream which started under the guidance of the incomparable Gerry Williams), Shayna found genius producer Randy Wine in the sunny land of California (thanks to one Scotty Albertson), where she has co-written and recorded her very first pop album, set to release this spring! She hopes her listeners will connect with her music, and the story of a girl who refuses to be defined by labels, who believes everyone has a voice that is worthy of being heard.
