In 2003, Sheena Metal founded an independent music organization, Music Highway. Boasting over 10,000 members worldwide, Music Highway is one of the biggest and most artist-friendly independent music resources on the web. Promoting more than ten live music shows a month in Los Angeles, Sheena has booked artists in venues such as such as The Key Club, The Troubadour, The Gig (where she promoted their opening night celebration), and Slim Jim Phantom’s Cat Club (where she hosted a night for George Clooney’s HBO series “Unscripted”) Currently, Metal books a variety of clubs from the upscale Knitting Factory (“Songs Rock!: An Industry Showcase”) to neighborhood industry hang-out Universal Bar and Grill (“Sheena and Friends”) in Universal City.
Sheena’s vast experience in many aspects of entertainment has made her a sought-after featured writer for the Los Angeles Times, Music Connection, LA Weekly, Curve, Unsigned, and All Access, as well as a variety of other magazines. She recently began a syndicated column, “Music Highway” as a companion to her weekly radio show, which has attained over 20 literary affiliates in just a few months.
From her eccentric beginnings as a cable access TV cult figure, to LA music industry icon, mainstream talk radio host, indie film character actress, headlining stand-up comic, New York stage actress, and in-demand journalist. Sheena Metal has truly earned the title Queen of the Nighttime World.
