"The Cultural Part of the Evening"

When she first started coming to Open Mic nites, we weren't quite sure what to think. Gee, her music sounds different? And, my gosh, she finger picks... does anyone really do that anymore?

After a while, though, we found ourselves having to listen... her softness of style, lyrical messages, and melodic music just forced us to. And, well, you had to pay attention 'cause every now and then she'd throw in a funny song that was hysterical.

And that's how she came to be introduced as "Our very own Folk Goddess" for "the cultural part of the evening". - Open Mic Host

"Too Good to be True?!?!?"

This is not an official press review, per se... but I'm not sure it could get much better than this - short of a record label!

I have a profile on at Look at my "friends" section and you'll see Bob Dylan and Simon and Garfunkel. Click on Simon and Garfunkel's picture... it'll take you to their profile. Or you could just go to their profile... and see it there.

Their "Influences" section says...

"Influences: Our main influence is those of you who keep the good ball rolling. Folk Goddess: Folk/Acoustic/Ambient "

That's ME!!! Does it GET any better than that?!?!?! - Simon & Garfunkel

"From a Fellow Artist"

I had asked folks to "lend an ear" and give a listen to my music for the purpose of receiving constructive input. This is what rhunter of The Vibe had to say...

"Nice minor chord progressions. The arpeggios are both hypnotic and haunting. The vocals are reminiscent of a storyteller, the emphasis is not on vocal range or flexibility. Keep developing lyrics and interesting chord progressions -- that is what makes your sound unique."

Hi Shari,

Just a quick message to let you know that I was absolutely, completely blown away by your CD. I've played it four times today. The songs were just beautiful (got a little misty-eyed on a couple of them as they hit kinda close to home...), your delivery was great and the production was way beyond what I expected. Kudos, kudos, kudos.

Being a guy, I'm usually not a lyrics person by nature, but your lyrics are something really special. What a lovely combination of heartfelt pathos and whimsy. It is such a shame that mainstream radio rarely plays actual "music" anymore. Your songs hit the heart like an arrow, and given proper exposure, there is no doubt in my feeble little mind that your songs would be quite marketable well beyond the local level.

I'm so glad I happened upon your site. Thank you for doing what you do.

Your new biggest fan,
Jack - Jack Booth

"Dear Folk Goddess"

thank you for writing "How Do I Know" the atmosphere of the song is so "exact" when an ex girlfriend finished with me in Feb it nearly finished me and i wanted to end everything... how does a person just decide not to love a person anymore..? as i say you caught the atmosphere exactly..thanx your song helped to "release" something from me...gary lammin

P.S just noticed that you say on your profile that because a lot of people keep telling you to change your style it makes you want to hold on to the style that you have..Good For You ! You got a great sound.. maybe its not trendy ( at the moment ) and maybe its not in vogue ( at the moment ) but your sound has a spiritual honesty that could only come from a person who through experiance of life has found something out worth keep to that sound ok.. and tell the people who tell you to change your sound that perhaps they could change their perspective instead.... all the best gary - Gary Lammin

Flower Power Boomer Bloomer Presents Metaphysical Folk Music

Being an internal long-haired hippie chick - externally "boho" - inspired and taught by 1960s upstate New York sleep-away camp counselors, my innate finger-picking talents had no choice but to shine through, mesmerize, and transform the heartstrings of all who listen.

Songwriting started when I called Eddie's Attic to sign up for Open Mic Nite. "Sure you can sign up. Ya just need two original songs...." and the rest sounded like Charlie Brown's teacher Miss Othmar... LOL! "Two WHAT?!?!?", I asked? "Two original songs with a third in your back pocket in case you make it to the finals", he said matter-of-factly. "Alrighty then...I'll get back to ya", was all I could say.

What a long strange trip it's been since then… over 30 originals, a professionally released CD, Open Mic performances, and enhancing my finger-picking style with equally as unique strumming styles… the rest is history… a history yearning and deserving of repeating itself.

Who knew I would, one day, actually realize my dreams as a flower power boomer bloomer… to go on to Produce & Direct my own FolkGoddess Flower Power Hour Television Show.

My biggest influences have been the Greenwich Village players of days long ago. Arlo Guthrie, Judy Collins, Joni Mitchell...those types. Of course, James Taylor, Simon & Garfunkel, Gordon Lightfoot, Dan Fogleberg, Nanci Griffith, and those folks have certainly contributed to the formation of my lyrical and musical style as well. My biggest influence of late has been those folks who have been persistent in telling me I need to change my style...they have convinced me to actually maintain my style so as not to have a "canned or cloned" sound. It is because of them, though, that I've mixed it up a little bit and enhanced my style with depth and musical variation.

My biggest influence of late has been those folks who have been persistent in telling me I need to change my style...they have convinced me to actually maintain my style... to mix it up a bit… what else could I do but enhanc my style with depth and musical variation.

I knew I "had 'em" when I began being introduced, at Open Mic Nite, as "The Cultural Part of the Evening...Folk Goddess Shari Moss". Do the compliments GET any better than that?

Oh yeah, have been a finalist in several songwriting contests including Emergenza's Acoustic Hero Contest and Atlanta's MusicFest
