Haunting vocals suspended in sparse, acoustic arrangements.
"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."
"Love this CD! What a pure, beautiful voice, and the harmonies are wonderful. My favs are Starling and An Irish Airman Forsees His Death - heartbreakingly beautiful!"
"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."
