An interview by John Freeman for The Quietus highlighted that "Mental health is a hugely important issue for Shah. Her debut album, the Ben Hillier-produced Love Your Dum And Mad, was largely inspired by the tragic deaths of two young men. "There are two boys that this album is predominantly about," she continues. "During the period of time these songs were written two very close friends took their own lives."
Shah is a keen speaker on the subject of social stigmas towards those suffering from mental health illnesses. This subject is also touched upon in her own work, such her début album Love Your Dum and Mad.
In February 2016 Hillier and Shah scored the music to the Northern Stage production of Get Carter. This included original pieces and the re-imagining of music by North East band The Animals, tracks such as "House of The Rising Sun".
Her latest album Holiday Destination was released in August 2017.
