“Alternative recording artist Sirsa Shekim is singer/songwriter meets 80’s glam with a pervasive classical twist.”
Sirsa Shekim is an award-winning recording artist, songwriter and writer living in Los Angeles. Her music has been featured alongside Paris Hilton, Pink, Chris Rock, Disney, many hit TV shows and more. The title track off her latest EP “Black Into My Life,” sounds like Madonna and Julie Andrews having an aperitif with James Bond.
Her influences, which range from 80’s pop to musical theater and folk — include Sade, Radiohead, Charles Aznavour, Julio Iglesias, Feist, hip hop, modern dance, the Mediterranean, French films, flight, hot air balloons, water, and the colors of the sky.
Sirsa has written the theme songs for Chinese film I Do and Russian film First Love: It’s the Music. She currently has plans to write a musical, soundtrack, several children’s books, and more.
Her Italian-based producer Federico Ferrandina co-wrote several of the songs on her upcoming album and composed lovely piano, string, and guitar arrangements — all recorded in his hometown of Italy.
Having grown up internationally to a Lebanese mother and Circassian father, Sirsa plans to one day live in France with a rusty bicycle, crusty baguette, bountiful garden and plenty of cheese and wine.
