Shayla McDaniel seamlessly blends hints of R&B with alternative pop. The singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist is based in Knoxville, Tennessee.

McDaniel’s newest song titled “Worth Living” is out on September 4, leading up to World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10) and US National Suicide Prevention Week (September 6 - 12). McDaniel penned the song to encourage people who struggle with depression or suicide, especially during this global pandemic.

 

No matter what you think or how you feel, you matter and you’re worth it. Don’t give up. Carried by airy, mellow guitar riffs over a relaxed drum beat, bursting into a soaring and anthemic chorus, “Worth Living” offers encouragement to those who are considering giving up on life with the simple reminder that life is worth living.

 

McDaniel will continue to play lively shows with her band, as well as intimate solo performances for growing local and regional audiences.​

 

Having dabbled in music for several years, McDaniel began to take her music more seriously after a friend challenged her to step out of her comfort zone and onto a bigger stage. She rose to the challenge and released the singles “Coffee” and “I'll Leave the Light On,” and soon after performed in the Cre865 Showcase, the official Startup Day afterparty. She also went on to perform live on-air at WUTK 90.3 FM, WDVX 89.9 FM, WOZO 103.9 FM, and at Rhythm N’ Blooms Music Festival, Waynestock and Women in Jazz Jam Festival. McDaniel caught the attention of the Knoxville Music Warehouse, who chose her song “I’ll Leave the Light On” as one of the top 16 songs from Knoxville Artists in 2016.
