ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Tai Shan has been described as sounding like John Mayer and Jack Johnson with the voice of Joni Mitchell. She has been called one of “Seattle’s finest singer-songwriters and composers.” Her clear soprano voice and complex guitar melodies have been featured on nationally released CD’s, international videos, local TV and radio stations. She has performed throughout the West Coast at venues such as Seattle’s Benaroya Hall and San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral. She has composed for jazz ensembles and string quartets.

Her songs have been featured on several promotional CD's. In 2005 she was chosen to represent Cornish College of the Arts with her song “Love Will Kill You in Time.” It was recorded with internationally known jazz bassist Chuck Deardorf and distributed nationally. Grammy Nominee Jovino Santos-Neto calls her a "Seamstress of Melodies," and Earshot Jazz winner Randy Halberstat states "She will ambush you with her compositions and unique guitar voicing." Tai Shan graduated with honors from Seattle’s
renowned Cornish College of the Arts.

Tai Shan has been featured on San Francisco Bay Area Television and radio shows including a live 1 hour interview on PBS's Our Roots are Showing. In 2008 filmmakers used her environment song "Tiny Planet" for the HBO documentary The Search for Turtle Island. Her music has also been featured on more than 100 Hewlett-Packard and Agilent Technology videos, which have been distributed in Southeast Asia and China.
She has also appeared before numerous audiences at festivals and clubs on the West Coast and has developed a strong following and fan base.
Tai Shan has just released her new CD Tiny Planet. The music is a sensitive, polished, collection of Tai Shan’s original songs woven with lush sounds of her rich soprano voice. Her lyrics combine with acoustic guitar, organ, cello, bass and drums to create her bolero, country, and jazz-infused tunes. The lyrical content of the songs range from evolution to
alcoholism, with wide sweeping melodies.

“Tiny Planet,” the title track of the CD, is a song about the sea and its interconnection with the evolution of mankind. Proceeds from the online sales of this song will be donated to Seattle’s People for Puget Sound, an environmental, non-profit group dedicated to the restoration of the Puget.

Uplifting
Listening to Tai Shan's Tiny Planet is an uplifting experience. Throughout the album, heartfelt melodies flow beautifully over catchy acoustic guitar grooves. The lyrics convey a sense of awe and appreciation for life. Lines such as "I am the daughter of each drop of water" elevate the listener from prosaic thoughts into gratitude and wonder. At climactic moments Tai's voice soars on a sustained high note, bringing an instant high. Though she points out that the earth is but "a spec in the universe", Tai's music seems to entreat us to discard the mundane and embrace the beauty of life on this tiny planet.

Tiny planet - Large world
Tiny Planet renews my love for great song-writing on acoustic guitar. Tai's music beautifully features her angelic and weaving melodies along with her story telling - which I find very rare among many lyricists today. Songs like Tiny Planet and Can't Find The Man I knew burrow deep in my soul and send shivers up my spine, while Looking Down and Crickets In The Dark make me want to get up and dance like a child. The CD feels raw and somewhat exposed at times, but Tai holds her own as a talented singer, writer and musician. Tiny Planet takes the listener from the mountain-top to the warm meadow grass in the valley, from the river to the ocean - Tiny Planet...Large World.
