Shefali first gained exposure as a professional dancer and model in Cleveland. While keeping her education a priority, she was crowned Miss India North America, became a featured dancer in music videos for artists like Sizzla and Dru Hill, and landed a spot performing along side the world's most prominent djs such as Tiesto and Paul Van Dyk. Her move to New York City and acceptance into NYU's Masters of Music Technology program led to the launch of her career as a singer, songwriter, and producer. She began collaborating with electronic dj/ producers and crossed paths with Chicago's Barrington Lawrence. Their first track "Eclipsing the Sun" caught the attention of the legendary Paul Oakenfold, who released the single EP on his label, Perfecto Records. The "Eclipsing the Sun (Barry Jay Remix)" was selected for Thrive Records' cd release of "Oakenfold: Perfecto Vegas," which topped the itunes Dance and Amazon mp3 Album charts. Following the release, Big Management signed Shefali and put her in front of veteran producer Rod Carrillo. The two completed the rock anthem "Here We Come", and epic house track "Faceless" (Spring 2010). As with her dancing endeavors which span from flamenco to hip hop, Shefali's creativity in music is diverse. Her collaboration with Universal artist the1shanti has led to the formation of Bonita Applebum, who's up-coming album crosses hip-hop and dance, while "maintaining a pop-sensibility."
