October of 2016, her first album «Made Of Gold» was released and landed over 200,00 streams on Spotify's Discover Weekly playlist. SHENNA is apart of The Music Playground, landing major sync licensing placements, including several records from her studio album, Made of Gold that were featured on the 2017 Season of «The Bad Girls Club», Netflix Film «Miss Stevens», Teen Mom OG, and MTV's «Finding Carter Season 2».

Be sure to follow Shenna on all social channels and get ready for more!

Little Strike
Little Strike is the alias of Israeli Yemeni musician Tamar Dart, based in Philadelphia. With roots in folk, electronic, and world music, the project feels like a collage of eclectic beats, playful guitars, and pointed vocals, arriving somewhere between Portishead and Little Joy. The listener is encouraged to go on a nostalgic walkabout around the world with lyrics in English, Hebrew, Spanish, French & Wolof, reflecting Dart’s deep love of languages and her own personal mixed heritage.
Dart’s first known memory involves war: she was 3 and had to relocate because scud missiles were being launched at her home town. Consequently since an early age themes of civil unrest and war fused into her thoughts and art. In her latest release, beyond things, dark societal issues including addiction, the murder of Michael Brown, and drone strikes are contrasted and eased by concepts of rebirth, a universal connection, and a profound love spanning many generations — a love beyond things.
