Born in Las Vegas, Shamir rocketed to success before his 20s rolled around. Shamir has maintained not only a devoted following, but also a steady stream of critically acclaimed records in a wide range of genres. The Philadelphia-based artist keeps an unshakeable work ethic. For a 28 year-old, Shamir has amassed a huge body of work. His live show and recorded output are more closely aligned than ever, holding close to guitar-bass-drums combos. But it’s clear with every shapeshifting release that Shamir can master any form he sets his mind to.
