My story is my own and I have written songs for me and for the ones I love who have made me me. My music is the form I have found best suited to expressing all that I know and all that I am - no biggie - just the only way I know how to truly share my heart and soul.

Biography

Shamiren Carroll was born in Sydney Australia on January 20, 1977 into a creative team with a lot of soul. Her passion for music and creative writing lead her to songwriting, as did the purchase of her first guitar in 1995.

After two years of travelling, writing and learning to love & play music in Canada and the UK, Sham returned to Australia with a repetoire of songs revealing a maturity gained from her experiences overseas.

In 2000 the 23 year old became a professional singer songwriter and began playing live shows in Sydney, Sham also appeared on Channel 31 community television and recorded her first demo during this time.

Since living on the South and North Coast of NSW, Sham has developed a backlog of new material and reworked some old gems to form an inspirational first album, which will be recorded later this year.

“Shamiren is meant to be here. She can teach us, entertain us and show us what it is like to be free and think differently.She has an informal way of living, she cherishes personal liberty, sexual freedom, unconventional dress and ideas. She challenges conformity in the nicest possible way, simply by showing how she does it differently. Shamiren writes poetry, music, stories and plays. She sings and talks and plays guitar. She draws and paints and takes wonderful photographs. She loves to learn and likes to teach. People like to be around her, enjoy her company and love her soul.Shamiren is my Daughter, I am blessed and I am biased.” Carolyne McCallum (Mother)

Lyrics

Shamrocks

Written By: Shamiren Carroll

I've seen you watching me, I feel its haunting me, you're everything I need. You see who's taunting me, you feel what I could be, you're everything to me.
Will you stay with me, when I'm sailing? If I'm failing? Will you wait to see, the real me, oh just feel me, love is all I need.
I see what you can be. I love you endlessly. You're everything, I need. You've seen the worst in me, its all my hurt set free, you're everything to me.
So will you stay with me, when I'm sailing? If I'm failing? Will you wait to see, the real me, oh just feel me, love is all we need.
I've seen you watching me, I feel its haunting me, you're everything I need. You've seen the worst in me, its all my hurt set free, you're everything to me.
So will you stay with me, when I'm sailing? If I'm failing? And will you wait to see, the real me, oh feel me, all I need, all we need.
