Shoshana Bean’s independent solo releases have topped the iTunes R&B and Blues charts in the US and UK in peak positions 5, 3 and now #1 with the release of her latest EP Shadows to Light.
Known for her powerhouse vocals, impressive range and energetic and emotional performances, her third studio project gives fans exactly what they want: direct, unfiltered access to the raw and visceral power of her voice. Shadows to Light features brand new originals, an acoustic version of her most recent single "Runaway Train" and a chart-topping cover of Sia's "Chandelier".

She sang back up for Michael Jackson at his 30th anniversary concert at Madison Square Garden and arranged vocals for Jennifer Lopez’s American Idol performance of “I Luh Ya Papi.”
Her television performances include: Soul Train Christmas Starfest, Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards (with Brian McKnight, to honor Aretha Franklin), Bebe Winan's BET’s 4th of July Special “American America,” The Marie Osmond Show and The Queen Latifah Show. Shoshana's music has been featured in TV shows on NBC, MTV, Oxygen and Showtime.
