Just last month, we had the pleasure of hosting emerging NYC based artist Shay Leonia in our monthly Sol Village r&b showcase. To say she impressed us with her performance was an understatement.

Now we have the opportunity to share a cool video recap she put together as a mini documentary of her performance at Sol Village and the journey leading up to that night. Her cinematographer Genea Sampson was inspired by NAO’s recent mini-documentary in creating this unique behind the scenes look.

Shay revealed to us that Sol Village gave her the opportunity to really reveal who she was and capture a much broader audience, and she really captured the moment wonderfully here. The video recap shows just how much the showcase can mean to an artist and what goes into the build up.

Take a few minutes to get into the video and learn about this exciting new artist!
