Shade' Joseph is a 22 year old musician/writer, born and raised in East London with roots hailing from Barbados and St Lucia. Having always had a childhood love for poetry and story telling, Shade began to perform poetry at events around London when she was 18. Before she learnt how to play instruments, her mother rightly proclaimed her as a musician by ear. For the last 5 years Shade Joseph has been producing and composing music for Hip Hop artists, singer/songwriters and poets. She has been known to accompany artists with live instrumentation at gigs. For Shade Joseph, the arts are a means to self-discovery and reflection through which she creates emotional connections with the world and most certainly with those who gravitate towards her work. Her talents know no bounds. She is certainly one to watch.
