Las Vegas’ Shamir evokes ‘90s house, pop, and R&B with his unique sound, which is further distinguished by a tenor voice so piercing that it flirts with falsetto. Growing up in the city’s Northtown area, Shamir Bailey listened to music ranging from rock to jazz and found inspiration in his songwriter aunt. With his friend Christina Thompson, Bailey formed the indie pop duo Anorexia, who released the 2013 EP Bedroom Songs and also played South by Southwest. He began writing songs with dance beasts, and sent some of his work to writer/producer Nick Sylvester, who helped shape Shamir’s new approach. Shamir signed to XL soon after the Northtown EP arrived, and releases his breakthrough single “On the Regular.” His debut album, Ratchet, arrived in May 2015.
