Shamar Forte returns with his latest effort titled “Something From A Dream”. Peep the captivating video below and let us know your thoughts…
The video was directed by Joe Dibenedetto. Very dope visuals.
Shamar Forté claims to have no fans. “I have dreamers,” he will tell you. “I try to sing and write what most people are scared to say or feel,” says Shamar. “A lot of people dream but very few are bold enough to risk it all to make that dream come true; dare to dream even if you’re the only one who can see it!” As you listen to him sing, you will find yourself yearning to dream your own dream. Shamar incites emotions and moves your heart, lyrics intoned with the wisdom you would expect of an old soul performing in a blues club.
“I think that I have a grittier way of saying positive things. I think there is a darker nuance contained in my music—it just feels natural for me to approach songs that way. In the end though, I know my songs are full of inspiration and an edge that’s enlightening. But that’s for you, though, the audience to interpret, and enjoy.”
Shamar’s playful, enticing and conversational lyrics get inside your head, making you wonder if you are hearing Shamar’s voice or feeling his actual presence. “I aim to be the voice for the person who is scared to have one,” Shamar continues.
Shamar has been ft in magazines and various stages, his music highlighted on BET’s highly rated afternoon show, “106 & Park,” as well as the world famous Apollo theatre amongst various other shows in NYC. Shamar was also handpicked to shoot with break out artists Nicki Minaj in her December issue from Ebony magazine shot by celebrity photographer Derek Blanks. Shamar released his first video (Showdown) in early 2011, which caught the attention and won first place in the Canada Hamilton Music & Film festival. His acting credits include performing the part of CeCe in “Dreamgirls.” He played the part of the Tin Man in a 10-city tour of the Harlem Live version of “The Wiz.” Shamar has also studied acting closely under Ms. Tasha Smith (“Daddy’s Little Girl,” “Why Did I Get Married.”)
As a recording artist, Shamar has joined alliances with the New World Group, a conglomerate of creative individuals. There, he found two producers who have been involved in the careers of such as the Jonas Brothers, JoJo (whom he has done backround vocals for), Mya, Sean Paul, etc. Shamar writes and co produces all of his own material with Z.Hannah, co-founder of the New World Group. “He’s the only person I’ve met who understands exactly where I want to take it, sometimes before I do” says Shamar.
