As evident in her mission, “…to treat the words artist, advocate, and activist as one in the same”, the female lyricist is expanding her catalog of inspirational music and poetry to showcase a fresh, universal sound. Shy is a very proud native of Dallas, TX.
It was there that she found her VOICE through oratorical contest, among her musically-inclined family, and like so many musical icons before her, in the church she grew up in. During her teen years she discovered a gift for songwriting where she found creative freedom by adding melody to heartfelt poems. Atlas, during her final semester of college, while simultaneously matriculating a Master’s degree in Supply Chain Management, Shy shook up the Hip-Hop & Poetry world as she told fans that codependency isn't so bad after all with the release of her independent debut EP "Addicted".
