Most recently she has been studying for a degree in Montreal; a multicultural city also known for being a prolific music scene. Whilst wandering around town during her first year, Shay connected with hotly-tipped producers from the HW&W crew. She was eventually invited to collaborate on writing tracks some of them thought would be a great fit for her alongside showcasing her vocal talent.
