Upcoming Reggae Singer and Songwriter Sherieta Lewis is quietly building her reputation in the Jamaican music industry. Four years ago as a student at the Edna Manley College, she made her first mark when she got the opportunity of a lifetime to open for and work with internationally acclaimed reggae crooner Tarrus Riley. She toured extensively with him between 2007 and 2010, an opportunity which allowed her exposure to audiences in Europe, North America and the Caribbean.

Since, during and even after that sojourn, Sherieta has continued to make her name as both a singer and songwriter. In her role as writer, she has penned lyrics or co-written for several well-known acts such as Etana (Warrior Love), Luciano (No Evil) and a few songs for Jah Cure including ‘Freedom’ and the hit song, ‘You’ll Never Find’.

As a singer, she has accomplished even more. In 2007, Sherieta made the international top 20 list on the BBC’s international talent competition, ‘The Next Big Thing’ with her original song, ‘I Wish’.

In addition to Riley, Sherieta has also worked with a long list of well-known names including Marcia Griffiths, Diana King, Beenie Man and Mr. Vegas.

Against the background of this overwhelming success, Sherieta is emerging from the shadows to take on the lead role she so often was support for. With a self-defined style she has termed ‘soul-jaying’, her every intention is to make memorable, enjoyable music. Says Sherieta, “I’ve often been described as a soulful singer and I often combine this with a soft-core version of deejaying, hence soul-jay”. She couples this style with everyday experiences and realities, creating songs that are loved by her small but ever increasing fan base.

Sherieta established successful relationships with top class producers Dean Fraser, Mikie Bennett, Christopher Birch and Donovan Germaine which has so far led to the release of a few singles; ‘Lies’, ‘In the name of your Love’ , ‘Reggae is Life’ and more recently ‘Come Find me’ and ‘Best Friend’

A positive individual with a strong belief that good music can change the world, Sherieta’s ultimate desire is to gather a catalogue of excellently written and produced music inspired by the experiences of those around her.
