Sheena Dham (she/her) is a musician and composer with ten years of public school teaching experience. Born and raised in metro-Detroit, Michigan, Dham gained an interest in all things bass, and found herself learning bassoon, tuba, bass clarinet, and bass guitar in her childhood. Earning a tuition scholarship at Michigan State University, she studied classical music as a bassoonist and traveled west to Wyoming upon graduation to pursue a decade-long teaching career. As a performing artist, she has worked in multiple genres as a vocalist and  multi-instrumentalist, and has performed in venues across the country. A decorated educator and performer, Dham is the recipient of a Teacher of the Year award and is a two-time Best of Jackson Hole musician.

Compositionally, Dham has worked with film, podcast, and dance/art spaces to create authentic scores and soundscapes that help to carry the aesthetic message. Her most recent compositional work, for docu-series Hard To Swallow, was screened at the 2024 Cannes International Series Festival, and she has performed and composed for brands including Arc'Teryx, Skullcandy, Quicksilver, and The North Face, and was selected for a 2023 Women's Audio Mission recording residency in San Francisco, CA. Her newest EP will be released on Psychic Eye Records in June 2024.
