Born in Moscow, Russia, Miss Lady Shadow came to the United States with her family at age 6 to escape anti-Semitism. Raised in Houston, Texas, Miss Lady Shadow moved to California when she was 18 to attend university. Graduating from the University of California Berkeley, Shadow also studied at the Berkeley Psychic Institute as well as the San Francisco Circus Center. During this time she performed with dance troupes, circuses, and cabarets, incorporating clowning, dance, acrobatics, circus, and even tarot-reading in to her performance style. Miss Lady Shadow moved to Los Angeles in 2011 to pursue acting and music. Today, Miss Lady Shadow continues to record and perform. Check out her mix-tape “Pretty Green Paper,” and lookout for “Girls Gone Wi-Fi,” and her album “Bad Girl World.” Watch for Miss Lady Shadow in the film “Cru” out next year. “Do what you love and love what you do.” -Miss Lady Shadow


IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  What city & state are you from?

MISS LADY SHADOW:  I was born in Moscow but raised in Houston, Texas. I now live on the West coast (LA, SF, and LV).


IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  What is your music background?

MISS LADY SHADOW:  I grew up listening to hip-hop and writing poetry. I also took piano lessons, taught myself how to play Russian folk songs on the guitar, and went to raves. I have training in a variety of performance arts including dance, circus, and fire.


IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  Why do you want to record and release your own music?

MISS LADY SHADOW:  I have a vision to create music that is not only a sound but an experience. By combining lyrics, dance, and circus, I strive to create entertainment with a message. I believe that the boundaries between music and genres have begun to blur. Hip-hop artists now feature on all types of music. I want to continue blurring those boundaries within music and performance until I create something totally unique. I also hope to show girls (and everyone else!) that you can be classy and nasty. Hopefully my music spreads Love & (R)Evolution.


IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  What are your songs about?

MISS LADY SHADOW:  My songs are about dancing, partying, boys and bad b*tches. I mostly make club music but throughout my lyrics you can find references to love and pain as well as God and injustice. I make songs to inspire motivation, self-realization, and personal freedom. My music is about being yourself and chasing your dreams.


IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  Who is your fan base directed towards?

MISS LADY SHADOW:  My market fan base is men and women ages 16 to 35. Most of my fans are on the younger side of this range.


IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  Who are your musical influences?

MISS LADY SHADOW:  I grew up listening to everything from 2Pac and Talib Kewli to Insane Clown Posse and Cake. I’m influenced by EDM [electronic dance music], especially drum and bass. Some of my lyrics include references to country and rock & roll. I am also greatly influenced by the performance quality of artists such as Lady Gaga and Madonna. Today, my favorite artists are Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne.


IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  How would you describe your music to people?

MISS LADY SHADOW:  I would describe my music as hood-pop; somewhere between Ke$ha and Twista. I combine trap, dirty south, and even techno beats with pop lyrics and intonation.


IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  What makes you stand out from other artists?

MISS LADY SHADOW:  While my greatest passion is music, I am first and foremost an entertainer. What makes me stand out is my training and experience. I am a dancer, model, and actress. I have a college degree and circus training. I am skilled in many types of performance. My specialty is aerial pole but I can also spin and eat and breathe fire. I have experience with martial arts, stilt-walking, and a few other performance mediums as well. I do my own stunts. I also represent something missing from hip-hop: a white girl with dope lyrics who is not afraid to say or do anything. Being multi-talented and multi-lingual, I incorporate different languages and acrobatic, dance, and acting skills to bring my lyrics to life.


IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  What are some upcoming projects you are currently working on?

MISS LADY SHADOW:  I am almost finished with my next mix-tape “Girls Gone Wi-Fi.” I also have an album in the works titled “Bad Girl World.” Also look for my big screen debut in the film “Cru” out later this year.


IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

MISS LADY SHADOW:  Of course I want to win a Grammy, a best video, best song, best new artist award, but more than that I want to create truly influential music. In ten years I hope I can say that I introduced the world to a movement of girl power with impossible skills and truly innovative performance. I want to create “The Almighty Question,” a performance troupe that tours with me and brings my lyrics to life with dance and circus story-telling. I also hope to one day have a nightclub that is a mixture of club, circus, performance venue, and art gallery. In ten years I want my music to be heard AND seen all over the world.


IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  How can your fans access your music & contact you?
