This past weekend, LA by-way-of NY artist, Shira Elias, formerly of Turkuaz, sat down with Grateful Web to discuss her newly released single “Earth Sun” from sophomore companion EP Services, as well as her upcoming debut as a solo performer.
The production of Services was a collaboration between Shira and husband/producer MEGA, and is scheduled to release on Friday, December 2, 2022.
Today, LA-based futuristic R&B-funk artist, Shira Elias, announces her sophomore EP, SERVICES the EP, due out December 2 and available for pre-order now. "HOOK'D," the first taste of the project, is a romantic funk-filled groove, out everywhere now.

Brooklyn Comes Alive returned to the Brooklyn Mirage, located in Brooklyn, NY's East Williamsburg neighborhood last Saturday night featuring diverse genres and heavy hitters from the jamband scene. Jamtronica icons Sound Tribe Sector 9 headlined the event, along with Lettuce, Medeski Martin & Wood, and the first ever performance by Cool Cool Cool.
Yesterday witnessed the first day of the first ever North Beach Music Festival, taking place at North Beach Bandshell in Miami, Florida. The day saw performances from some local acts like The Heavy Pets, and then later on saw headlining sets from the likes of The Motet, Karina Rykman, and Pigeons Playing Ping Pong.
Here in LA; it’s hot! The usual May, grey days have disappeared, with summer clearly wooing us, even though we have nowhere to go. Some of my fondest memories are sticky, Sunday nights heading to Club 70’s to dance the night away in white, go-go boots with a vintage, brightly patterned miniskirt and complimenting mid-drift tee. I was only seventeen. We would pack into my VW convertible or borrow one of our dad’s fancy, mid-life crisis’ vehicles to shuttle ourselves to Hollywood. The windows were down and popular 90’s music was blaring.
Funky, upbeat and bold anthem "NAH" has arrived from Shira Elias' debut EP, GOODS. Best known as part of Brooklyn-based 9-piece funk band, Turkuaz, Elias is now venturing into a creative space all her own—one filled with honesty, self-discovery and growth. "NAH" is the first single to be released from Elias' debut EP, which drops May 29th, 2020.
