Born into a family of musicians from Arkansas, Shaffer C. Smith a.k.a. Ne-Yo was raised in a single parent home by his mother. In hopes of a better opportunity, Ne-Yo's mother relocated the family to Las Vegas Nevada, where Ne-Yo
would discover his passion.
A master in the art of storytelling, Ne-Yo began writing at an early age. A vivid imagination and creative energy has allowed Ne-Yo to write songs for multi-platinum artists such as
Mary J. Blige, B2K,
Faith Evans, and
Musiq. When asked about writing number one hits for other artists, simply put, Ne-Yo said, "I feel there is always room for good music. I want to reach people's soul with my lyrics through whatever vessel God chooses."
Ne-Yo found his first taste of real success in 2004 after "Let Me Love You," a song he wrote for R&B singer
Mario, became an instant smash. Shortly thereafter, Ne-Yo was asked to prepare an album consisting entirely of his own material. "In My Own Words" debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200, and went on to spawn three hit singles: "Stay," "So Sick," and "When You’re Mad."
Infusing pop melodies to rich, soulful production Ne-Yo creates both a unique sound and sentiment for his records.
He confesses, "I've always been the writer, the guy in the background, but being the actual artist is a whole new experience for me."
Citing Prince, Marvin Gaye, The Rat Pack, and
in his list of favorite entertainers, Ne-Yo invokes a nostalgic feeling, a renaissance if you will. Whether it's the bedroom or the dance floor, Ne-Yo's songs are filled with passion and intense energy that pulls (you into the music)
and puts you into a zone.
He graces and challenges popular music with his writing and vocal talents.
Ne-Yo is a rare artist - expressing creativity through drawings, paintings, martial arts and song. He is distinguished by youthful energy with in-depth lyrics that touch the soul.

"Miss Independent", "Sexy Love", "So Sick",
