The city of Honolulu hosts the world famous Waikiki Strip, home to Shella a.k.a. "The Blasian", because of her Black & Asian heritage. Shella is a rapper, singer, performer, and producer with the unique ability to ride a beat like no other! Not only does she write her own lyrics, she does this fluently in English and Japanese. Her melodic lines and catchy phrases undoubtedly let you know she has an exotic style of her own.
Shella Sanders was born and raised in Honolulu to an African American father and Japanese mother. Her musical influences stem from both cultures. Shella got her start in music at the early age of 11 as a DJ for school events and house parties. Tragically, her father was killed a year later and her passion for music grew as she learned how to turn bad emotions to good ones by writing and singing songs. By age 14, Shella began to get radio play and also appeared on many different compilation albums covering the island. She was the opening act for several major artists that came to Hawaii, including Sean Paul and Styles P. Shella's following grew beyond Hawaii and caught the eye of many record execs.
Finally 18, with thoughts of touching a new fan base Shella went to Tokyo for a while creating a buzz and developing international appeal. She linked up with DJ Princess Cut, a down south Japanese renowned DJ and put together her first EP: Blasian Music presented by DJ Princess Cut. The EP features Lil Flip and Hawaii's own, Fiji.
