Shara's interest in music began at an early age by having both parents as music teachers; her mother a pianist and music teacher, her father a songwriter and guitarist. With training in piano and music theory, she began composing songs at the age of 13, performing live on the piano at different events throughout her teenage years. Her interest in EDM came later in 2005, when she was introduced to the Montreal dance scene. Local DJs such as DJ Maus, King Louis, DJ XL, Creator and Mighty Kat influenced her taste in EDM along with International DJ's such as Junkie XL, DJ Dan, Satoshi, Benny Benassi, Danny Howells and Preach.
Shortly after, she began producing and remixing tracks of different genres. She was introduced to different software programs which enabled her music abilities to thrive through the computer. She quickly began to produce tracks that were widely liked by many. She has releases with Yeiskomp Records, Symphonic Distribution, Sogood Music/ACO-Tech, Direct Drive Digital, Android Muziq, 6N7 Music, and more! After getting a taste of the production side of things, Shara began DJing locally in her state in 2007. Since then, she has DJ'd all over the North East, including Canada, London, and Alaska; sharing the stage with great talent such as Chus & Ceballos, Sydney Blu, Matt Darey, dj shortee, Joe Bermudez, Exodus, Richard Fraioili, Bastinado, Kid Optimus, Ben Coda, Tyler Michaud, and many more.
Shara Dee is a founding member of The Electronic Music Alliance- The Electronic Music Alliance (EMA) is a 501(c)(3) public charity, non-profit organization, and global membership alliance uniting the electronic music industry and community to be the “Sound of Change”; cultivating, collaborating, and celebrating social responsibility, environmental stewardship, community building, and volunteerism.
Shara also creates nights where multiple DJs share the decks while benefiting a variety of charities starting back in 2007. Those nights are called "DeVote" and admission is a little cash + a non-perishable food item, clothes, toys, books, ect. depending on what charity is being helped. Not only is money or donated items given to multiple organizations, but she brings awareness to them as well.
"Let us dance together on these nights and DeVote our energy, contributions, and hope to making lives better." - ShaR4
