No stranger to music, ShOOey spent over 20 combined years studying the cello and piano. ShOOey first discovered her love for house music in the Chicago club scene in 1997 but it wasn’t until she moved to San Francisco in 2003, where she learned the art of DJ’ing and the beauty of moving and shaping a dance floor.
While ShOOey doesn’t like to be pigeonholed into a specific musical style, her high energy shines through her track selection and bass heavy beats, with a sweet spot in electro house and funky breaks. As a prominent member of the Space Cowboys music and art collective, based in San Francisco, she has been a part of more than a decade and a half of rocking dance floors with a massive following on the playa and beyond. With influences span far & wide, ShOOey draws inspiration from the sounds of Santiago & Bushido, John Dahlback, and Layo & Bushwacka, but the breakbeat aficionado in her can’t get enough of artists such as DJ Icey & Wes Smith.
ShOOey has shared the stage alongside the likes of Krafty Kuts, Plump DJ’s, Chris Fortier, Matthew Dekay, Markus Schulz, Luke Fair, JPhlip, and The Scumfrog, to name a few. Whether performing at the annual Burning Man festival or the now infamous Space Cowboy’s Halloween event, Ghostship, ShOOey is known for the infectious energy that she brings to the dance floor. Whether it be through a smile, reaching out to hug someone, or dancing on stage, ShOOey is a big believer in that without the crowd, the DJ would be nothing!
