Welcome to CHIRP 2021!

Shayna Steele, 7:00 P.M. in Ballard Park Tuesday, July 27th

Born in California, raised in Mississippi, and a self-proclaimed “American Air Force brat” Shayna Steele grew up all over the world.  With a charismatic, charming and truly unique voice, plenty of technique and the vocal strength of a volcano, Shayna has done background with the likes of Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson, Bette Midler and Steely Dan. Recently, she has toured regularly as a featured vocalist with Grammy Award winning trumpeter, Chris Botti.

In one performance, California-born, New York-based vocalist Shayna Steele unleashed enough voltage to light up the West End.” – Matt Pannell, London Jazz News
