Actor, Singer, Designer, Producer, & Mother
Shana Farr had a song in her heart when she moved to New York over 20 years ago, and she fell in love at Harry Winston. While building her performance career, Shana climbed the ranks at the luxury jeweler learning the importance of design, detail, and craftsmanship, to ultimately become the Global Director of Merchandise. It was common for Shana to leave her Manhattan office after a day of design development, to then head to rehearsal for one of the many productions and concerts she appeared in.
Never choosing one career over the other, Shana's commitment to both has also led her to put on the "Producer" hat in both fields - producing her own line of jewelry as well as producing her own award-winning shows.
As a designer and merchandiser, her pieces have appeared not only at Harry Winston, but also in Macy's, Kohl's, JCPenny, HSN and QVC, Zales, Ross Simons, and more. Once her own brand launched in 2012, her product was featured in Bridal Guide Magazine and has been written up in the Huffington Post, JQ International, and more. She is also a consultant for mass manufacturers and has developed lines of jewelry that are now seen in major department stores across the U.S.
As a performer, Shana has now played to the great supper club rooms of New York and London and across the U.S., her voice has soared in historical concert halls with symphony orchestras, and she has collected rave reviews for leading roles she portrayed in some of the country's the great theaters. For the past seven year, she has performed at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City, and has received two prestigious awards celebrating her as an outstanding performer and interpreter of songs from the great American Songbook. Her debut CD Out Of The Shadows was released in 2012, and just recently she received a New York City Bistro Award for her solo show "In The Still Of The Night".
As a Mom, she is learning every day and looks to many women for inspiration as she walks (and sometimes runs!) along the road of motherhood.
