She is also a featured guest composer and conductor for the Metropolitan State College Jazz Festival where top composers such as Maria Schneider, Marshall Allen, and Don Byron have been past featured guest artists.

Since moving to New Jersey, she has been a steady member of the Tia Fuller Quartet, and has played with many other great artists such as Christian McBride, Lonnie Plaxico, Ralph Peterson, John Pattuci, Terri Lyne Carrington, Sean Jones, Toshi Reagan and many others.. She has toured Europe and the United States with her fiery, yet soulful piano playing and has played at many of the top jazz venues and festivals in the world.


Shamie’s debut CD entitled “Portraits” was just recently released, where her compositions and performance are to the highest degree. New York Times states “Shamie Royston’s ‘Portraits’ is a first album of elegant piano-trio music.” She continues to be a leading force and a new voice in the jazz world.
