Singer-songwriter Shua's contemporary folk-inspired music connects listeners to the core emotions that flow through the human condition. A storyteller turned songwriter, Shua’s music conceptualizes feelings of loneliness, love, faith, and fear into poetry. Raised in Southern California, Shua was just eight when he got his start by playing a piano given to his family from his church. By eleven he was singing, and songwriting naturally followed. Shua’s unique style is influenced by soul, gospel, folk, and alternative genres. Backed by a band of talented musicians, Shua plays both acoustic and electric guitar and keys.
