Shingai Shoniwa


I found The Noisettes through their song 'Don't Give Up'. It was fast, fun and had an amazing lead singer. After hearing it on the radio, I came home, went straight to Google and looked them up. Lead singer, Shingai Shoniwa wowed me with her talent, her voice and her style. As a black girl growing up, listening to rock and roll, I identified with her style and sound. She looked like me and rocked like I image myself rocking if I were fronting a band! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-RI8-eSQoQ


To this day I am inspired by her style, her sound and her story. Thank you for being such a rock start and truly setting yourself a part with everything from your voice to your wardrobe.

"I think escapism is something that connects all of us. Everybody has their own little soundtrack, and I guess Iā€™m trying to make my own soundtrack to my escape plan. I want people to realise that there's so much more."
