SHY is a Ukrainian singer-songwriter defining her genre as indie-pop/acoustic-pop. A former
X-factor participant, she released her debut EP “Loading” back in 2018 which launched her
career as an independent artist.
Now SHY is based in Dublin and is re-establishing her music project going international with
the new English language LP “Awkward Tunes” which came out in April 2023 and landed a
number of Spotify editorial playlists like Indie (Ukraine), NMF (Hungary), Primavera Chill
(Italy), Wiosenny Chill (Poland) and others. The lead single You Don’t Think of Me got radio
plays in UK and Ireland, as well as in Eastern Europe and North America (Amazing Pop

Seizing all and any opportunities afforded to her, SHY’s multiple direct observations of war
