A vivacious Caymanian performer has left her beloved family and friends in North Side to pursue her music career in the UK.
Precious Shordee is a rapper and songwriter who brings a feel-good moment and light through music. She is a former UK pageant queen and is renowned in the Caribbean for her modelling. Precious’s style is R&B, rap and dancehall which is vibrant, clubby and soulful. Wherever she goes, Precious draws people in with her bubbly personality, unique Cayman accent and natural beauty.
Daughter of Richard and Arena McField, Precious Sheril McField grew up in North Side but attended George Town Primary. Now based in Hertfordshire, about an hour’s drive north of London, she is forging ahead to establish her brand.
Precious has performed live for the biggest festival in the Cayman Islands, the Pirates Week Festival (2019) and on multiple stages throughout the island. She's been invited and interviewed by Hype TV in Kingston, Jamaica at Big Yard Studio in Kingston as well as Suncity 104.9FM Radio by DJ Shotty Shane in Portmore, Jamaica.
Making some noise in London’s UK scene, she was nominated for Best Female Reggae/Dancehall/Soca Act at the RBE Awards. Precious performed her first headline show "The Baddest Female Takeover" at the Ruby Lounge four months ago in London where she performed songs from her EP ‘Breakthrough’ and introduced her new single ‘Spice’ to the public. It was produced by OBE and her sound was engineered by JP Tronik working alongside Frost Level Management and Empress Meisha.
“I relocated to the UK to start my music career. I'm an independent artist and I've set up my team in London and filmed/directed my Spice video in London,” Precious said.
Recently she was interviewed by DJ Khaled, one of the top record producers and recording executives in the world, on a live video call on Instagram. DJ Khaled found her music to be “wicked, super dope” and her performance “incredible”. He added: “What I like about Precious Shordee is that she is ready. That’s the kind of people I like to work with.”
Despite the restrictions imposed by COVID-19, Precious is finding ways to get her music appreciated. “I am promoting myself via social media and other online platforms. The internet is a global platform where artists can promote themselves and grow. During such a fragile time for the world, music is a powerful and passionate way to uplift people’s spirits.”
She added: “I’ve got so much appreciation for DJ Khaled for giving me an opportunity to show my music to him and for the recognition of my song.” She also values support from Lady Leshurr, a top UK artist who was dancing to Precious’s song online. “I thoroughly enjoyed Spice, it’s a win for me,” said Lady Leshurr.
Precious’s new single, ‘Cayman Islands’ produced by AKamoshun, is about enjoying the Cayman Islands, the energy it brings, partying in paradise and her pride in being Caymanian. It features KG Paree, another Caymanian artist. Precious said: “I hope it inspires all my island people, especially my Caymanian women as well. At this time, we are all fragile and the entire country as a whole could use an uplift. I would love for you to celebrate with me moving up musically on the map. We are Cayman strong; God bless our people. My heart, my anthem, let’s celebrate the Cayman Islands. My dream is to put the Cayman Islands on the map musically on the mainstream platform.”
