Shukura Chapman is a singer-songwriter & multi-instrumentalist who the AU Review describes as "..intoxicating and effortless". Jamaican roots, growing up in New Zealand and her eclectic taste in music all influence Shukura’s sound - a refreshing blend of soul, R&B and roots. Her soulful vocals slice through cascading electric guitar loops and live production onstage. In 2017 Shukura was announced as a finalist in the Queensland Music Awards, received airplay on Triple J and moved to Melbourne, finishing off the year playing Outside Tribe Festival and Bendigo Blues and Roots Festival. 2018 saw Shukura opening for Caravana Sun and Reuben Stone, among others, and playing Bendigo Craft Beer & Cider festival. Writing and producing in her home studio Shukura has been experimenting with and redefining her sound and is looking forward to releasing new music in 2019 that encapsulates her new sonic direction.
