Mumbai, 09th October 2023: It’s always exciting when an artist releases new music, especially after several years since their last EP. It’s notable that Shilpa has taken on the roles of both songwriter and composer for all 11 original tracks on the album, which shows her creative talent and dedication to her craft. The involvement of Drew Of the Drew for production and mixing, Jake Sherman for keys and synths, and Beatbox Ray for additional engineering suggests a collaborative effort with some talented individuals in the music industry. Jett Galindo’s mastering work at The Bakery is also a good sign for audio quality. The fact that the title track of the album has an interesting music video which was released on the 7th of October, shot in the southern part of India adds another layer of excitement and cultural richness to the project.

Speaking about the album Shilpa says, “My second album release ‘Reproduction’ is a powerful story about a woman who dares to defy societal and cultural norms, breaking the holds of patriarchal control, and choosing to follow her dreams rather than to do the stereotypical, tried and tested path followed by those before her. Through each song she finds more and more liberation, strength and acceptance within herself”.
