Carving her own melodic lane, RnB artist Shreta uses her South Asian heritage to add a subtle nuance to her melody and cadence choices. Her pen-game is fresh and powerful with catchy punchlines that are playful and adult themed in equal measure.
Tell us about ‘Go Get Her’ and what inspired it?
‘Go Get Her’ to me is a song about wanting to spend time with someone over being at a crowded function or party and wanting to know if they feel that way too. It is inspired by so many different situations in my life where I’ve felt like I would’ve rather been connecting with somebody over being in a crowd.
Are you a home-body or do you like to go out?
I love to be out, especially in my city.
You are heading to the States to perform, can you tell us about that?
I am so blessed and grateful for the time I’ve spent in the US, building my community and working on music. It has been such a growing experience for me and I’m excited to do more out there everytime I travel. I am definitely excited to perform.
What are your plans for the future?
I want to keep allowing people into my emotional and musical world, and sharing myself with people slowly. I want to keep giving people music that has been so special and valuable for me to create.
Who are you favourite RnB artists’ of all time?
I love Sade, Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey. But the people I am most influenced by would be artists that are more behind the scenes, and I am more influenced by their pen.. and the sonics of their music. Like James Fauntleroy, PND.
How would you describe your musical style?
Unique, emotional, atmospheric and fluid.
