Sharayah Daves

Sharayah Daves is a singer-songwriter from Chattanooga, TN, named after Amy Grant’s 1985 single, “Sharayah.” Her journey to Music City began at the age of five when she was cast in Alan Jackson’s “I Still Like Bologna” music video. At seven, she discovered the power of music to translate emotions into melodies, as she wrote her first song during the summer of her younger brother’s life-saving kidney transplant at Vanderbilt. In high school, she started mentoring under Doug Sisemore, Reba McEntire’s Musical Director, and writing with Mitch Rossell, writer of Garth Brooks’ #1 single “Ask Me How I Know.” As a sophomore at Belmont University, she has deeply immersed herself in the Nashville music scene by serving as Vice President of Belmont Christian Musicians (BCM), working events (such as Country Radio Seminar, the Dove Awards, & Tin Pan South), and building strong relationships with industry professionals. A recent highlight of hers was being chosen as the February 2023 winner of the Bluebird Golden Pick Contest and getting to perform at the iconic Bluebird Cafe. She is constantly seeking opportunities to bring joy to the world through music and is passionate about using her talents to inspire and relate to others.
