Bio

Shae Williams, who performs under the moniker SHAE ALTERED, is an independent singer, songwriter, and dark and dreamy alt-pop act from Portland, OR. Her music is an intense and melodic blend of alternative and electronic pop that straddles the line between indie and commercial.

 THE MUSIC: SHAE ALTERED's debut EP, Sleep Talk, was released March 2017. The EP is a collection of songs written and co-produced by Williams operating around the concept of confessions and dreams; each song is an admission that can only be addressed in a state of unconsciousness, using experimental sounds to create an immersive space. Being not only a musical but visual artist gives Shae the freedom to create her own artistic content and visuals in conjunction with her music. The EP was reviewed by Northwest Music Scene, and the title track from the EP was featured on Wolf In A Suit music blog, The Drunken Coconut Music Blog, and Substream Magazine’s playlists. River, the second single off the EP, debuted on hit Portland radio station KINK (101.9 FM), and her music has garnered play on national radio including Portland Radio Project, Beyond Dawn, Crystal Blue, WXRY, and international play on Analogue Trash Radio in the UK. SHAE ALTERED attended the Northwest chapter of the Grammy Songwriter's Summit in 2017 and has played Portland’s premier venues including the Hawthorne and Roseland Theatre. SHAE ALTERED has played the RAW National Music and Arts Showcase in Portland and Youbloom indie festival in September. She will play RAW San Diego at the House of Blues November 2017. Her most recent single, Miss Me, was released July 2017 and was featured on YabYum music.. 

THE GIRL: Shae Williams was born in Portland, Oregon, USA. She began writing poetry as a child and began writing songs at the age of twelve when she started to learn the guitar. Shae began to study classical music as a teenager and would go on to tour with several elite choirs into young adulthood. She was accepted into college with a vocal scholarship but would go on to graduate with a degree in visual art, minoring in music studying opera and musical theatre. Throughout everything, she continued to write and in 2016 overcame a lifelong battle with anxiety and decided to release her own music. She released her first solo music project in, the Sleep Talk EP, in March 2017. You can find Shae's art here.
