WHO IS JAY SHALÉ
DJ. Recording Artist. Actress. Model. The list goes on.
Besides being pretty dope on the basketball court, receiving a college scholarship for bowling (whaaaa?), having played the cello since the 5th grade, participating in band and orchestra throughout middle and high school, working at NASA and leaving her corporate job at Eli Lilly & Co. in Indianapolis, Indiana to pursue music full-time (where was I going with this again?) oh yeah! Jay Shalé is a pretty talented and versatile entertainer! And I guess she’s pretty cool too.
Born in Regensburg, Germany, Jay has moved around a bit, letting each experience add to her personal development. Taking her vocal abilities a bit more serious, she actively started pursuing singing and rapping in the spring of 2014, letting her life experiences influence her work. Jay produces as well, having reproduced some of the covers she's posted online! Vocally, while attending Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, Jay has performed in Houston, Dallas, and Austin.
Initially, Jay moved to Indianapolis after landing a pretty awesome corporate job in HR with pharma giant Eli Lilly & Co. post graduation. After having left the company in the Spring of 2016, Jay has since performed around the city and posts covers on her YouTube channel. She's been working on new original music that will also be available on all digital streaming services in addition to her YouTube Channel and Soundcloud.
Since February 2017, Jay Shalé, better yet DJ Shalé, has been taking several states by storm. Self-taught, she has been a resident DJ at three of the hottest Indianapolis clubs in the city and has spun for celebrities such as rapper Trina, Black Ink Crew: Chicago tattoo artist Ryan Henry, and the reggae band Common Kings, just to name a few. In July 2017, she spun at the "400 Fest at the Brickyard" that featured DJs such as Major Lazor and the Chainsmokers. She has had popular Nashville clubs jumping with guest hosts like Jilly Anais and Nikki Mudarris, with Atlanta, GA, Huntsville, AL, Detroit, MI, Chicago, IL, Montgomery AL, Brooklyn, NY, and Los Angeles, CA being just a few other cities she's brought the vibes to. In addition to that, she's been on the big stage, having spun during the Colts vs. Titans game over the 2017 Thanksgiving weekend and in Wild ‘N Out’s Season 12 and 13 Green Room. She recently moved to Atlanta, GA where she's been expanding her entertainment influence DJing at several Atlanta clubs including being a resident DJ at Empire ATL Lounge, owned by QC (Quality Control). She had the opportunity to DJ for the LARGEST Falcons game against Saints, performing in front of a packed Mercedez-Benz Stadium of 72,000+ fans! DJ Shalé has gone viral on Facebook and Twitter for her spunky and fun “less than 3 minute” DJ throwback mixes, landing millions of hits across the social platforms.
In mid-2017, Jay Shalé decided to show more of her personality online by shooting and posting comedy sketches as well as providing encouraging messages, amassing almost a million combined views!
