We introduced different times Scottish London-based musician and singer-songwriter Eliza Shaddad. She has toured with the likes of Bedouine, Kae Tempest, Lucy Rose, Oh Wonder, Max Jury, Keane and Turin Brakes and she is also a founding member of ten-year-strong female arts collective Girls Girls Girls, which works to empower women within the arts, and to raise awareness and funding for the anti-female genital mutilation charity Orchid Project.
Three years after the debut full-lenght Future, she has released a new album called The Woman You Want. The album was mixed by Grammy Award winner Sam Okell (PJ Harvey/Celeste/Graham Coxon), mastered by Tim Rowkins (Rina Sawayama) and features Micheal Jablonka (Michael Kiwanuka) on guitar.
“The Woman You Want is a record of me figuring myself out” Shaddad explains. “I’d been wrestling with the idea of wanting to be a better human, a better woman, a better wife, better friend, better daughter… and not really feeling capable of it… and the so the title, and title song, came out as a direct challenge really, to me, and to the listener.”
