Shevyn Roberts Nabs Third Hollywood Music In Media Nom.
Multi-talented performer Shevyn Roberts (www.shevynroberts.net) lands her third Hollywood Music In Media Award(HMMA) nomination for the sugary sweet pop song "Better Than The First Time." She scored her first HMMA nomination in July for her single "Superstitious," then her second in August for "Upside Down"; all in the Pop category.
Shevyn and other nominees will contend for top honors at the ceremony to be held at the renowned Fonda Theater in Hollywood on Thursday, November 21, 2013. The HMMAs honor music from visual mediums, individuals who create and produce it, and both mainstream and independent musicians from around the globe.
Shevyn recently celebrated the nods on Big Blend Radio & Magazine's radioshow Champagne Sundays. Her upbeat dance/pop EP Superstitious is available for download and streaming on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify as well as many other major retailers and music sites.
On the supercharged dance/pop title track, Shevyn sings playfully about astrological signs and the things presumed to bring us good and bad luck. The infectious song was penned by EP's producer Louis Yoelin (Valora / Hollywood Records and Shelby Cobra / Disney Records).
Shevyn capped 2012 by being named one of Music Connection magazine's Hot 100 Unsigned Artists & Bands of the year, although fans in Shevyn's hometown of Houston have been feeling her vibe the past few years. In 2008, her video for the song "Wild Child"-a track from her first EP, produced by Dave Carlock (P!nk, Nine Inch Nails)-aired on the city's Hot TV. Later that year, she was a featured artist at Jingle Jam, a holiday time concert put on by 104.1 KRBE (Houston's #1 Hit Music Station) that included performances by Rihanna, Chris Brown and Gavin DeGraw.
The following March, the singer performed as the only featured artist at the Britney Spears concert pre-party at Houston's House of Blues; she ended 2009 by opening for an about-to-explode Justin Bieber at the Verizon Wireless Theater.
Shevyn, who is a six-time National Solo Dance champion as a teenager with the American Dance/Drill Team School and Showtime International,opened Shevyn's Dance Academy in 2010, a non-profit organization for kids offering ballet, jazz and hip-hop dance classes.
