On the new «Feels Like» remix, 1 Trait Danger infuses Shoemaker’s slow-burning indie-pop track with pulsating electro production, elevating the single into the perfect “crying-in-the-club” banger.
Following her 2020 sophomore EP, Everything Is Embarrassing, Shoemaker released «Feels Like» in November to praise from Under The Radar, who called it «a blend of pop theatrics and unguarded honesty». She rounded out the year with the release of «Silver Cowboy Boots», which received press support from Refinery29, LADYGUNN and MTV, and is currently streaming on Spotify’s ‘Fresh Finds’ and ‘Fresh Finds Pop.’
The 26-year-old New York-based, Philadelphia-born singer/songwriter first made her mark as a Soundcloud sensation with her viral mashup of Kendrick Lamar’s “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” and Chance the Rapper’s “Cocoa Butter Kisses,” which she recorded on her bedroom floor. The song, which now has over 894K streams, caught the attention of fashion mogul Steve Madden, who signed her to his record label, 5Towns Records. Shoemaker’s debut EP, «East Side», was produced by GRAMMY-nominated producer JT Daly and released on 5Towns Records in 2018.
In 2020, with a newly inked deal with BMG, Shoemaker released her sophomore effort, «Everything Is Embarrassing», as well as a handful of new singles. Despite only being a few years into her career, Shoemaker has already been praised by the likes of Billboard and Refinery29, opened for Julia Michaels and Bishop Briggs, and sold out her own headlining gig at Mercury Lounge.
The music video for Michael Fairman’s «Other Side» sheds light on some of the biggest social issues of 2020 including the Covid-19 pandemic, the call to stomp out systemic racism, domestic violence, LGBTQ equality, and the rights of the disabled.
