Shamaine Egal

London, United Kingdom

Actor, Model, Musician

My name is Shamaine Louise Egal and I have been a part of the performing world since the tender age of 13. At 18 I began to have professional singing lessons and started to gig around my hometown of Cardiff with a full band and also as a duo act. During this time I was a support act for Goldie Looking chain at a summer festival held in Newport. At the age of 22 I moved to London to study on a music and performance diploma at Vocaltech music school. During this time I became a part of many different projects gigging and recording Backing and lead vocals. I passed the diploma with a high merit. After finishing the diploma I decided to further my musical knowledge and study on the Bmus Popular Music and Performance degree at the London College of Music. It was here that I met many talented artists and was blessed with being able to work with them. I perform as a lead and backing vocalist in a number of different bands and have the pleasure of meeting many talented individuals everyd
