Meet Shi la Rosa | VoyageChicago

Interview

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shi la Rosa.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Ever since I was little, I was telling people I wanted to be a singer. Most kids grow out of that phase, and I just didn’t.

Single Premiere: Shi la Rosa “Space Queen”

We are proud to be able to premiere the new single, “Space Queen” from local Indie Pop musician Shi La Rosa. This is the alter ego of Rachel Colonna who release her debut EP, “Sometimes I Think Of You”, in collaboration with producer and multi-instrumentalist Sink Slow back in 2017.

“Space Queen” blend elements of disco, jazz, and radio-ready pop to create a track that is both sultry and danceable. This is a perfect end of summer backyard banger.

Listen List

I covered this on my recent episode of Neon Broadcast, but it's worth mentioning again. The track came out at the end of last year with singer Shi La Rosa singing smoothly over Sink Slow production. Both represent Chicago properly. This one is perfect for rainfall.
