Singer-songwriter SHAD STONE (also known as DJ, Nana Kay) is a young, animated, energetic and powerful artist. SHAD STONE has just released his independent DEBUT EP, He Cares for You.
A commanding performer, presenter, DJ, actor and motivational speaker, SHAD STONE is an artist in all of its meaning, using his passion to inspire people and most of all deliver a universal message. The young born again Christian shares: “My music is written and performed to inspire others. Coming from the streets at 19, I had a life-changing experience. Seeing who I was then who and where I am now moves me. My journey encourages me to let the world know that whenever we feel alone in our circumstances, there is something bigger than us, never giving up on us”.
The Ghanaian-British artist quotes his musical influences as some exceptional artists like Stevie Wonder, Boyz 2 Men, Omar, Michael McDonald, Kurt Elling, John P. Kee, Donnie McClurkin, Fred Hammond and Marvin Sapp. SHAD STONE’s distinctive and somewhat husky tone brings an especially unique sound to the UK music scene.
