Who is Shiny Iris?
Shiny Iris is a singer from the south of France. She arrived in Nice at the age of 6. If she misses her roots, it is through music that she has decided to pay tribute to them, fusing French and Lingala, French urban pop, African and overseas rhythms in her songs.
She has been singing since she was very young. She travelled the stages of Nice offering mainly covers before moving to Marseille and taking a new path. There she learned to play the guitar, wrote her first lyrics and joined forces with several arrangers and composers for her very first Afro-tropical urban pop project, true to who she is. If the main themes in Shiny’s lyrics are love, disability, faith, hope or simply hope, it is above all to convey a positive message.
What is the single “Mama” about?
This song is a tribute to Shiny Iris’s mum and to all the mums in the world. That we should honour and cherish the mothers who gave us life.
How to describe her music?
Shiny’s music is a mixture of languages and cultures and therefore also of rhythms. She shares this journey with us in a gentle way, with the sole aim of bringing a positive attitude!
Where does she find her inspiration?
She finds inspiration from personal experience. Shiny did not have the chance to grow up with her mother. She arrived in France at the age of 6 and has always lived with her father, as her parents are separated. But even though she was far from her mother, she never forgot her. She wanted to show her all the love she has for her in this piece.
The singer states:
“My mother is all my faith and perseverance. She is the strongest person I know. Despite the difficulties of life, she continues to fight and keep hope in God in every situation.”
