Lyrical Shaw

SHAKEN by the experience of one of his friends, singer Lyrical Shaw was moved to write and record the song Unfaithful.

"A close friend of mine who was in love with a girl was hurt by what she did to him. She cheated on him, and that's the reason why I decided to write about it," said Lyrical Shaw.

Unfaithful was released in 2020 and re-released a few months ago.

"I think this song has so much potential so we decided to start promoting it again. The lyrics are relatable, and anyone who has been hurt can truly understand what the person went through," said Lyrical Shaw.

Lyrical Shaw says songs that deal with matters of the heart and societal issues define who he is as an artiste.

"I bring good messages, positive messages and songs to uplift and inspire others; I have had this love for music in me from a young age. I've always wanted to do music," he shared.

Lyrical Shaw is originally from the Spanish Town area but he grew up in Seaforth, St Thomas. Born James Shaw, he worked as a barber and later as a photographer before pursuing music professionally.

Unfaithful was produced by Papaz Records.
