Shejay was born in 2001, out of the notion that female artists in electronic music were overlooked and underexposed. The founders were not pioneers in starting an all-female community, but began with specific mission, and a network of 40 members and a small specialized readership. Today, Shejay.net plays hostess to over 1100 female artists and continues to grow.
Shejay�s mission is to promote, feature and discuss female DJs, vocalists, VJs and producers via our webzine and through events and tours. On our website, readers are able to seek out event and music reviews, articles and listen to online mixes. Extensive interviews are only clicks away, and each issue�s cover features the best of the best female talent. Our popular club nights and bi-annual tours give our artists a live platform for performance and international exposure.
Kelly Sylvia and Mona Holmes are the co-founders of the magazine. Kelly - a London-based DJ, and LA-vocalist/writer Mona spearheaded the entire development of Shejay in 2001. A powerful partnership was formed, and the official launch of the site came in December, 2002. Available for print, radio and television interviews, both Kelly and Mona are lively, articulate, witty women, who are well-versed in the music industry and pop culture.
