Andre Smith better known as Shacar, signed to Paradice Records in the summer of 2014 and since then has dropped a number of tracks (which can be streamed and downloaded on soundcloud.) Earlier this summer he released his 4 track Ep album "Screaming Without A Voice." Shacar was Born in Clearwater Florida but calls St. Petersburg his home. Shacar believes his music is the representation of love. " It will unite, empower and be a path for a lot of individuals who wants to reach their high-self yet may not have that exposure. I'm bringing a purity of love to the industry." Growing up, Shacar listened mainly to Motown records artists, such as The Temptations, Frankie Lymon, Michael Jackson, etc. People around him often said he had an "old soul" and many believed it had to do with the soulful music he grew up listening to. "Honest expressions, experiences and relief from my own journey. I'm not here to sugar-coat or to create fallacy. I'm here to give people something to feel better about, feel wiser, and feel stronger." Just to name a few artist who Shacarlistens to on a regular are Lauryn Hill, Frank Ocean, Amy Winehouse, Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Willow & Jaden Smith, and Joey Bada$$. "I'm into our youth right now and what we're in the process of building"- Shacar. Within the next few months, expect to hear more music, more videos and blog posts about Shacar and his musical growth in the industry. Stay Tuned!!!
