Sharayah Daves

Sharayah Daves is a singer-songwriter from Chattanooga, TN, named after Amy Grant’s 1985 single, “Sharayah.” She is passionate about writing authentic songs that connect with souls and pull on the heartstrings, primarily in the genres of country and pop. 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 wrote her first song the summer of her younger brother’s life-saving kidney transplant at Vanderbilt. Throughout high school, she began mentoring under Doug Sisemore, Reba’s Musical Director, and writing with Mitch Rossell, who penned Garth Brooks’ #1 single “Ask Me How I Know.” She currently serves as Vice President of Belmont Christian Musicians (BCM) and is a proud member of Belmont Service Corps, along with Bear House Writers Management. In 2023, she won the Bluebird Golden Pick Contest along with three Songwriting Pro contests, received an honorable mention in American Songwriter Magazine, and was a finalist in the Belmont Writers Showcase. Most recently, she was one of six Belmont students selected to receive a guitar from the Gibson Gives Foundation in honor of the six Belmont alumni nominated for a Grammy in 2024.
