“Waffle Cones” from Chicago artist Shana Diggs is an EP with a blend of unique sounds that mix and match a little bit of everything from uptempo rap, R&B and reggae vibes
Shana Diggs was born Croshana Campbell on November 29, 199X, in Chicago, IL. Growing up Shana Diggs was the 2nd oldest of 12 children between her mother and father. During her childhood she always had a strong love for music and while living on the east side of Chicago after making a few neighborhood friends she discovered her love for preforming as well. Shana, her older sister and a group of friends started an all girl group that began as dancers, which progressed into imitating other girl groups such as Destiny’s child and TLC, to becoming their own girl group “Lil Angels”.
After years of writing songs and preforming together anywhere they could, the group split up but Shana’s passion for making music remained. Feeling discouraged about being a solo artist she decided to focus on her education. She went on to graduate from Senn High school, Malcolm X College with an Associates in Science and Resurrection University with a Bachelors in the Science of Nursing and obtained her nursing license. With all the educational success Shana still was unhappy with not pursuing her true passion. While still in school and working full time Shana started making youtube covers which began to yield some success. Her most successful YouTube cover to date was an original verse over the “Or Nah” track by Ty Dolla Sign which generated over 10,000 views.
From there, Shana got involved in two unsuccessful management deals. After finally deciding to take things into her own hands she decided to release her first independent single, “My Name”. The song was recognized by some big names in Chicago such as Twista, Power 92’s DJ Hotrod and WCGI. After being featured in WGCI’s Next to Blow Showcase, things finally seemed to be moving in the right direction but do to some unforeseen family event Shana began suffering from depression and once again put her music on hold. Finally in April of 2018 Shana Diggs is releasing her first completed solo project entitled “Waffle Cones”.
