Album Notes

"Sublime, profound and groovy . . ."
-Naomi Graychase, Girlfriends Magazine, July 2003

" . . . a cross between Suzanne Vega and Shawn Colvin."
-Renatt Brodsky for New York Resident, June 2003

". . . lithe and supple . . . Shaw's voice and guitar accompaniment reign supreme."
-Jon Worley, A&A, July 2003

". . . one I'm going to be listening to for a long time. . . . Shaw really is unique."
-Amy, Collected Sounds, July 2003

". . . beautiful and beguiling vocals . . . heartrending."
-Keith "MuzikMan" Hannaleck, at, and, July 2003

". . . an absolutely refreshing second album of intellectual lullabies."
-Megan Donis, Producer, EGG the arts show-Thirteen/WNET, May 2003 (NYC)

". . . few, if any, have the depth, songwriting skill, and mellifluous voice of Jodi Shaw."
-Mark Kirby, Dreamforge Magazine, May 2003

"At this point it's hard to inject any kind of vibrancy in the
shop-worn folk-pop genre, but Jodi Shaw succeeds on The Pie-Love Sky."
-Time Out NY, June 2003

". . . this Newfoundland poetess sounds as much like Suzanne Vega (circa her debut LP) as anybody you've ever heard."
-The Village Voice, June 2003

Born in Newfoundland, Canada, after a brief stint as a graduate student in poetry, Jodi left academia and began transforming her highly coherent, lyrical poetry into songs. Her debut CD, "The Myth of Patience," was selected by Boston's Metronome Magazine as one of its Top Five Album Picks for July, 2001.

On her second album, "The Pie-Love Sky," produced by Steve Addabbo (Suzanne Vega, Shawn Colvin, Dar Williams), she continues to develop the distinctive sound that puts her in a class with few peers. While her songs often recall the quiet beauty and subtle-yet-visceral impact of Chan Marshall's Cat Power, Jodi's uncommonly pretty voice and straightforward delivery is comparable to vocalists like Edie Brickel, Suzanne Vega, Natalie Merchant and Heather Nova. The Pie-Love Sky delivers a strong acoustic blend of indie and folk with Jodi's melodically intuitive style of guitar playing recalling that of the great Joni Mitchell.

Her third record, "Snow on Saturn" also produced by Steve Addabbo, is forthcoming Sept. 2005.

Love Jodi Shaw!! I'm spreading the news about her and getting more people addicted. Fab lyrics, Fab music. Great listening highly recommend Favorite song Cabrini Green.


Insanely catchy
"The President Knows" is the best pop song of the year.

Mary Maxwell

love it!
fabulous is my favorite word sadly, however, I can use it rarely. I only use it if necessary and at certain times. When I listen to Jodie Shaw's music is one of those few times(In Cabrini-Green is my fav song!)


I had heard "Cabrini Green" as a demo song and fell in love with it. This is one of my favorite cds...


Best local NY artist
An intelligent and sophisticated songwriter allergic to cliches... I'm hooked!


Great album, both lyrically and musically.
This woman can write a song. I bought the album on a whim, and have since fallen in love with it. The music is catchy, yet complex enough to be contintually interesting, and the lyrics are extremely poetic and well crafted, full of imagery. This album's low end is still fairly high, and even the two songs I don't particularly care for are decent. On the album's high end, it is amazing. The song "Out of Love" is like Kerouac's "The Subterraneans" compressed into three minutes, and one hell of a listen. I would highly recommend this album to anyone, regardless of genre preferences, as simply an example of fine singing, playing, and songwriting.


Wow. Really, it is the kind of music that sort of speaks to your heart & stays
I know nothing about music or genres or folk stuff, but I heard this voice and the way the melodies go and, well, it seems just really awesome to me. I can't say what it might mean to others, but to me it like the sound track to some of my days or some of my moods. Really, go to and listen to a few to see what I mean. I think it's going to be the next "big" thing....

"Absolutely amazing."
I have to say that there aren’t many -- if any --female singer/songwriters “on the scene” today whose voices I like as much as I love Jodi Shaw’s voice. Shaw is a local NYC folk-pop artist who -- based on talent alone --should be huge. Her songs are exceptional and her lyrics are tightly woven word puzzles conjuring razor sharp mental images. “The President Knows” is a story-song of cryptic political intrigue with an almost whimsical feel to it, thanks to Jodi’s clever phrasing and high-spirited backing vocals. It’s really a great song. While Jodi’s songs often recall the quiet beauty and subtle-yet-visceral impact of Chan Marshall’s Cat Power, her uncommonly pretty voice and straightforward delivery is comparable to vocalists like Edie Brickell, Suzanne Vega, Natalie Merchant and Heather Nova. Her music is a strong acoustic blend of indie and folk with Jodi’s melodically intuitive style of guitar playing recalling that of Joni Mitchell. Absolutely amazing. -Gail Worley, StarPolish, July 2003
