Daize Shayne, Living Her Dream



Not surprisingly, Daize grew up in Hawaii where, as a kid, she taught herself to surf. Although it took time to be taken seriously in a male dominated sport, Daize opened eyes with each competition she entered.
 
Daize has also been working hard on her music and acting. She will play the lead role in a feature film titled
"This Side Of Heaven" due out late fall '06 as well as another supporting role in a feature film called "Dark Journey."

Daize's page continued

Although Shayne has been singing and playing guitar as long as she has been surfing, it is only after reaching the pinnacle of success as a surfer, that she began to focus on her burgeoning music career. She’s already headlined a 9-city Hard Rock Cafe tour, during which her special limited Edition CD, Live Your Dreams, was made available.

She’s also landed several coveted equipment endorsements with companies such as Peavey and DiMarzio PickUps, Audix Mics, and Harman Music. But these aren’t any old endorsements. At DiMarzio, Daize is the only female guitarist ever to be offered a deal, joining the company’s impressive roster of guitar virtuosos including Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Al Dimeola and Steve Vai. Peavey, on the other hand, has created the Daize Shayne "Live Your Dreams" guitar starter kit for tweens and teens which includes a guitar, amp, tuner, strap and an instructional video by Daize, due out in the Spring of 2006. Robert Kinsler, music critic for the Orange County Register, sums up Daize’s sound this way. “Like the potent Pacific waves she rides, Shayne's music is rooted in forces that recall a time when rock was defined by the music.”
