Shukura Chapman

Singer-songwriter / Musician

Shukura is a UK born, NZ raised, Australia based singer-songwriter & multi-instrumentalist. Her sound is a melting pot of soul, roots & blues & her live shows feature live-looped percussion & guitar layers with soulful vocals over top.

Her music, while clearly a nod into the direction of soul and funk, still feels fresh and contemporary.

A relatively new face on the scene, Chapman is roots music and giving it a soulful and bluesy vibe.
