“Shine This Lifetime” is the latest single and video from Laura Cheadle, released worldwide to all major streaming services on May 18, 2021. This time the singer has set her soulful vocals and cool analog vibe to an uplifting Disco groove. On the track Laura is joined by her father James Cheadle, himself a renowned stage and studio musician who has worked with everyone from The O’Jays to DJ Jazzy Jeff. He produced and engineered the song at the family’s New Jersey recording studio.
The two Cheadles lay down an infectious organic dance jam with soul-inspiring lyrics. Over a funky and natural mix of drums, bass, piano, organ and guitar, Laura encourages us to grab the bull by the horns. Seize the day, find your bliss and rock on. With a vibe that is one part Donna Summer and one part Janis Joplin she sings, “Everyone’s gonna tell you what they want you to be. Baby’s I got news for you, you’re allowed to be free!”
I wrote this song during quarantine when everyone around me was feeling down. It is about the inner voice inside you learning to just SHINE. I want fans to smile when they hear this song and to be instantly inspired to follow their dreams!Laura Cheadle
