No Grown Boys Allowed (Official Music Video)
The modern era of music has given way to enigmas and artists of all shapes and forms who break the norm of what we have come to expect as far as what an artist truly is. LaShonda Schofield is one such artist that epitomizes the essence of the R&B (nostalgia 80s /90s) sound.
LaShonda is making music that is thoughtful, conscious and driven by a desire to contribute to breaking unhealthy patterns in love and relationships, while celebrating the great aspects of how we show up in relationships. She always wants to give the listener a world to escape to, with lots of ear candy to consume. A woman inspired by the 80s and 90s grooves of R&B, Pop, Rock, as she would say “My Mom was MTV, my Dad was BET and my Cousins were Video Soul, Vh1 and Midnight Love”. Lashonda is a hybrid with diverse styles and genres that are a part of her musical DNA. She can go from Wham’s “Everything She Wants” to Atlantic Starr back to Duran Duran to Anita Baker.
As an indie artist and a successful label owner (3 OH! 9 Music Group), LaShonda’s overarching ambition is to be a positive influential leader for the next generation of girls who grow up to be musicians or executives in the music Industry, letting them know they have a chance even if they make mistakes. This period of evolution has led to the growth of LaShonda’s creativity and undeniable talent.
LaShonda is ultimately in the groove with her heated singles Wash That Man, My Rhythm, My Blues, Calamity and Free to Love featuring MIG, and No Grown Boys Allowed. She has developed a style of songwriting that is transparent, daring and full of hope and reflective of her will to teach Man how to treat Women, turning her ambitions into purpose and lessons into studio sessions.
She has had a vast array of musical influences however she accredits the pivotal influences in her music to Sharon Bryant and Barbara Weathers of Atlantic Starr, Anita Baker, Klymaxx, Earth, Wind, and Fire, Chaka Khan, George Michael, Teena Marie, Melba Moore, and 80s Pop/Rock. This all culminates in LaShonda producing a musical experience that is enjoyable, easy going and fun but still seeks to provoke thought.
To date, “Wash That Man” is featured in an indie film “Shattered Love”. She has had the pleasure of co-writing with Deep Soul House artist Tasha LaRae on her debut album, Light up the World, Uncomfortable and #Fridayfeeling. LaShonda and Tasha LaRae co-wrote “Clarity” which was released on an album “POJI on 25”. LaShonda Schofield is the host of Power Music Radio relationship show Love, Life, and Homework. This is the music that will push the boundaries of our perception as well as inspire and drive us to introspective conversations. It’s the music that may not change the world, but can change the people in the world.
