All of creation starts in the dark, whether in the womb or soil. One needs to burrow to create roots to be fully grounded. Challenges will arise and with “After Darkness,” Sh8peshifter transforms life’s impediments into her greatest gifts. “I have earned stripes through the school of hard knocks,” says Sh8peshifter. “I’ve now come into the light, stepping into a new level of my own power as an artist. "My new EP reflects my personal story, but even more so, it’s a call to action into our highest divinity."
