Career[edit]

SoShy, who began her career as an actress, soon discovered the art of DJing, which she did for several years. She also started Singing in clubs at the age of fifteen. She then met Lone, a French producer in 2003, and from there signed a deal with Sony Music/Daylight New York. Since signing, SoShy has traveled the world for her debut album, co-writing with artists including BloodShy, Sam Waters, Walter Turbitt, Mark Ronson, Cool and Dre, Steve Kipner, Estelle, Jim Beanz, Michelle Bell, Kovas, Novel and more. She was also featured at the 2005 and 2007 MUSEXPO music conferences.

SoShy co-wrote with Ryan Tedder from the group One Republic "Strike the Match" for the ECHO Music Awards nominated German all-female pop band Monrose .

"Appetite for Love" was written in Gunnersbury, London in 2004 with former members of the rock group Rising Times and producer Guz Lally after songwriting stalwart Wayne Hector declined the session. The title was paraphrased from the hard rock group Guns N' Roses' debut album.

In addition, she wrote a song for the American pop rock singer Chris Cornell on his new album Scream. Also in 2009 she wrote the song "Elvis", sung by the Belgian group Leki & The Sweet Mints.

SoShy was signed to Timbaland's MosleyMusic Group/Interscope/Universal Music Group through Jimmy Iovine.

She can be heard on "Morning After Dark" which she co-wrote, the first single from Timbaland's 2009 album Shock Value II.[3] Her single "Dorothy" was featured on the FIFA 10 and her song "The Way I" was featured on The Official Soundtrack of FIFA 06. They soon after intensively promoted the hit single by performing live on TV for the MTV Music Awards, Conan O'Brien Tonight Show, followed by many live shows, such as House of Blues Los Angeles and also throughout the world.

She then signed to Sphere Musique/eOne Music in Canada from 2012 to 2014. Her debut album Crack The Code was released September 9, 2014 worldwide. The first two lead singles ("Whateva Man" and "City Of Angels") are now available on iTunes.[5] The video for "Whateva Man" premiered on Vevo September 3, 2014.[6]
