Sha Sha: Sampler (Promo) (199x)

Unreleased music from Birmingham artist Sha Sha (real name Sharon White or now known professionally as Sha White) who was briefly signed to Jive Records in 1990 and had a few minor hits with "Bad Attitude" and "Lies" before going independent in 1991. She is mostly known in collector's circuits for her 1991 album "Blessed With Love" which may or may not have been originally recorded for Zomba (although "Bad Attitude" did not feature on it.) Her style was a mixture of jazzy soul and dance music, not dissimilar to Barry Blue's early 90s trio Asia Blue though "Independence" garnished more than a nod to Lisa Stansfield's "All Around The World." Following this White went on to release a handful of other singles in the 90s including the street soul favorite "Lover Come Back." These days though she has served as a backing vocalist for the lesser talented Joss Stone... hailing from the same place as Jaki Graham, it is a real shame she was not as well known.
