In the Round: Shayna Steele and Buggy Jive

Friday, June 14, 2024

In the Round Series in partnership with WEXT is back at UPH. Our mission for this series is to uplift and highlight the work of various singer/songwriting artists on the rise to stardom!

One of the greatest singing sensations of our time, known from recordings with Snarky Puppy and Moby and a host of other stars, Shayna Steele takes flight on her third album, “Watch Me Fly”.  Offering six self-penned originals and four select classics ranging from Soul via Blues and Gospel and easily crossing over to retro R&B and Jazz, showcasing Shayna Steele’s supremely soulful energy, as well as her mind-blowing vocal artistry and songwriting skills.


Buggy Jive is a soul rock singer-songwriter quietly uploading songs and music videos from a basement studio somewhere in Upstate New York. He was recently honored as a 2023 “Top Shelf” Tiny Desk Contest finalist; his latest release “The Ghost of Alexander” was named Album of the Year at Upstate New York’s 2023 “Eddie” Awards. A string of high-profile shows this fall included a well-received opening slot for Macy Gray’s “Reset” tour kickoff in Troy, NY.
