ShaoDow (Shaa-ow-dough) is a professional rapper, manga author and possible ninja.
Equipped with a law degree and having studied Shaolin Kung Fu in China, ShaoDow utilises the tenacity and determination he learned from his martial arts training to independently forge his music career.
Being an artist in the truest sence of the word, he was inspired by other art forms as shown in the video below for ‘Kaio Ken’.
It’s little wonder ShaoDow scooped the 2017 AIM Award for Hardest Working Artist – he has self-released three albums, which have sold more than 25,000 copies, created a headphones brand and published a book through his own company, DIY Gang Entertainment. The London-born artist makes a full-time living from his music, manga and merchandise and has even appeared on ITV’s Ninja Warrior UK. He was recently invited into Parliament to speak on behalf of grassroots music venues across the country.
ShaoDow is no stranger to GRM Daily as seen in ‘Dropkick Man’ which also features The HeavyTrackerz!
ShaoDow has opened for the likes of Wiley, Ghetts, Stormzy, Skepta and more, while his live shows have taken him across the UK, Europe and Asia. A truly unique Fire in the Booth with Charlie Sloth is the jewel in the crown of a plethora of radio shows, including Radio 1, 1xtra and BBC 6 Music.
Let’s see what ShaoDow has to say about Vocalzone!
Vocalzones are a lifesaver, I remember the first time I discovered them I was 3/4 of the way through a club tour and had completely lost my voice. Those magic little pastels brought my larynx back from the brink of oblivion and allowed me to finish the tour with a voice box that did more than just make breathy squeaking sounds. I’d definitely recommend these for anyone who makes a living from their voice and now that they have introduced new flavours, I’d triple recommend them!
