ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I was born in Newfoundland, Canada, the oldest of three children. My mom was a nurse and my dad a food service manager. We moved around a lot, finally settling in New England, where I attended high school and swam on the swim team.

My childhood was not particularly musical aside from the fact that my father had a real passion for country music. I took piano lessons for a short while, but hated it and quit.

I went to college in New England and studied anthropology. After I graduated I moved to the Pacific Northwest, worked a variety of low paying jobs, and had a lot of interesting experiences.

It was around this time that I started writing little rhyming poems. They were short little sing-song things that also happened to be intense and sometimes even violent, like nursery rhymes for twisted adults. These poems were small and radiant bursts of light, like peepholes into an alternate universe. I kept at it and eventually made the "crossing" into music. I did this by teaching myself how to play guitar and using any words that came up to drive the rhythm, pitch, and tone of the song. It wasn't until this happened that I truly understood the power of music, and just how closely related words, speech, and music are.

I now live and work in Brooklyn. I used to live in a very "artistic" neighborhood but alas, all things come to an end. I now live in the "family-friendly" section. There is a beautiful old piano here in my new home, big and grand and full of personality. I also have my own little work room. It has a big window overlooking an interesting street, and a closet to keep all my things in. It is in this room that I write songs.

Thanks for supporting my art.

A great recording artist; but don’t miss her live!
Jodi Shaw, Jodi Shaw, Jodi Shaw. I’ll be the first to admit that it was going to take a lot for me to listen to anything new and folky. I’ve got my Joni Mitchell, I’ve got my Simon & Garfunkel, I grew up on Suzanne Vega. Isn’t there enough great music out there to fill a lifetime of listening? Two? More?

But I happened by Artland Bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn one night and was lucky enough to hear Jodi Shaw. I was a convert. Immediately. It’s not just the rich, beautiful voice, the exceptionally touching and clever lyrics, the effortlessness of her musicality. These are all there in her recordings, but I don’t think the recordings alone could have hooked me: It is her presence. She has one of those souls that shines while she performs. There’s nothing you can put your finger on; she has an easy, witty manner on stage; sways with her music; is not rapt in some sort of dramatic ecstasy as she plays. She is just there. But very, very there; so present she fills the stage, the room, your skin. It is the audience that is rapt; she is smiley, chatty, relaxed; as if she doesn’t know what she is doing to us. Maybe she doesn’t know. Maybe she can’t know.

I’ve seen Jodi perform a lot now, in several different venues. She is always consummate, always natural, always a joy to watch and hear. But if you want the peak of the Jodi Shaw experience, hear her at little Artland, where the feeling of immediate warmth and camaraderie that the place exudes at all times is reflected and amplified through Jodi’s effortless magic into something really, really special. Don’t miss it.

Soothing, Elating And Edifying !
Jodi Shaw's vocals and music are soothing, sublime, hyptonic and at once profound and pleasant. She merits stardom and hopefully the entire Country will be exposed to her three stellar CD's (The Pie-Love Sky,The Myth Of Patience and Snow On Saturn). She is consistently a marvel and listening to her songs is invariably an edifying musical experience. Music for the soul.
