The European Press glorifies Jean Shy with headlines like “The Queen Of The Night", “Golden Throat", “The Voice Of The Lord", “Dynamite Stick" and many more.

The Catalina Bar & Grill in Hollywood proudly presents an Evening with Singer, Songwriter, Music Producer and Actress Jean Shy celebrating her current US CD release The Other Side Of Blue, on Wed. October 17, 2007.

Jean Shy and the dynamite TB True School All-Stars will perform a melodic cocktail of Jazz and Blues with a touch of Soul. Included in the Repertoire are Songs from her new release. The Other Side Of Blue recorded at the Radio Krakow Studios in Poland, consists of great tunes with very hip lyrics, written and composed by Shy, and some Cover Songs that have been very carefully selected and rarely covered, if at all.

Born in Chicago, Jean's vocal Background had it's beginning in Gospel Music. Her musical influences were very versatile ranging from Mahalia Jackson to Elvis Presley; Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington to Aretha Franklin and Gladys Knight.

After regional successes and a Number 9 Dance Hit in the US Billboard Charts entitled “Night Dancer" (B-Side -That Old Black Magic) Jean Shy branched out and went to Europe, making Germany her second home. Throughout Europe she has performed Rhythm & Blues, Jazz and Gospel as a headline Act at major Festivals, Concert Halls, Luxury Hotels and large Cathedrals & Churches for more than twenty Years.

Musical Director of the TB True School All-Stars is Bassist, Vocalist, Producer, Songwriter Tony Boyd. He recorded and toured with Barry White, Love Unlimited Orchestra, The Jacksons, Sheila E, Eric Benet, Shant Moore, Brian McKnight, Mary J. Blige, Chaka Kahn, Eryka Badu, Mariah Carey, Back Street Boys and Sheryl Crow, just to name a few.
