Bio

Born and bred in Sarawak, Malaysia, Shal Sagan is of mix parentage whose maternal roots go as far as Scotland. Shal’s interest in music goes way back when she was just a child singing and performing in front of friends and relations at gatherings. By age five, she attended piano lessons, but her interest in piano switched to guitar and since then this young lady has more than eight guitars in her collection and has sung and performed at many functions and parties both in Sarawak and in other parts of Malaysia.

Shal’s first song was written at the age of 12 after she started ‘jamming’ with some of the local neighbourhood kids. She formed her first all-girl band named “Miz D’meaner” when she was 16. During this time, she wrote several songs like “When Everything Seems like Nothing”, "If you wait" and with her back-up vocalist Sarah (also ex-band member of Miz D’meaner), wrote “Petrified”. Later, when some of the band members left Kuching to further their studies, Shal met Karen in school and together they created "Leesa Muse". "Leesa Muse" produced a demo in K.L. which consisted of both Shal & Karen's songs. As a band, they worked hand in hand on producing Shal's songs, "Message in a bottle", "Death's Fatal Kiss" & "Foolish Frailty". These songs can be found on Shal’s debut album entitled “A Special Note” which was released on November 20th, 2004 in Kuching, Sarawak by Shzogawa Records, a record label conceptualized by Shal which helps in the production/recording/distributing & promotion of her products.

“Shal’s ability to play the guitar and at the same time sing in her unique style portrays flair and gifts. Her creativity and ability as a budding and promising artiste should be an inspiration to all young people who aspires to excel in the world of music. Shal has created an icon for Sarawak, an icon for her family and an icon for herself. I believe Shal can one day reach her dream and go International”, said Hanifah Taib-Alsree, Executive Director of Kristal Harta Sdn Bhd - Cats Radio during the launching of “A Special Note”.

Besides being a songwriter-singer, Shal is also a talented poet. She was named as one of the world’s best poets for the y ear 2003/2004 by the International Society of Poets. Her poetry has been published in several journals/books including, “The Eternal Portaits” and “The Best Poems and Poets of 2004”.

An avid traveler, Shal has traveled far and wide to countries like the United States of America, Europe, the United Kingdom, Australia, Thailand, Singapore etc.

In 2006/2007, Shal started working on her second album with Multi-Australian Recording Industry Awards engineer Greg Henderson. This album was completed in 2008 and is due to be released soon.

Her song entitled "Listening" is a new start to her journey towards music.

Much as she would not like to admit it, Shal is a very gifted and talented songwriter and singer. However, Shal is very humble about her albums and feels that “the best is yet to come”.
