Eye.Sha was born to Gambian parents in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and grew up watching BET's 106 & Park. Because of this, her music draws from the vocal stylings of traditional Gambian Griots and early 2000s R&B. With these influences she creates a genre-defying sound that she describes as avante-garde-R&B. Her music fits on playlists with artists like Senabou Sey and Dawn Richard, while her rich alto tone is reminiscent of Anita Baker. In 2022, Eye.Sha was acknowledged by Exclaim Magazine, on its list of eight emerging Canadian artists to watch.
