"Funky Soulfulness"

" In addition to being a fine singer Ms Shaffner is a talented composer. Her compositions exhibit a blend of witty lyrics and funky soulfulness that makes them both entertaining and stimulating to listen to." ~ Darrell Tidaback, Professor of Music, Notre Dame - jazzdakini. com

Bio

Patti is a recent finalist in the "Great American Song Contest" with her tune "I Don't Do Country"

She is also a Vocalist, Vocal Coach, Songwriter, Performer, Theater Director and Improvisational Singer.

She is a ‘natural’ singer with and understanding of our profound need to express ourselves through our voice. Her own journey into Improvisational Singing has developed over a lifetime of creating melodies, invented language and performing, eventually venturing into jazz and ’scat’ singing.


In 2004 she attended a workshop on “Spontaneous Invention” with Bobby McFerrin and the horizon of vocal improv expanded . In 2008 completed ”All The Way In”, a master class with internationally recognized Master of Improvisation, Rhiannon and returned in 2010 to a regathering with other singers from "All The Way In" classes.

Patti leads workshops in Circle Singing, Singing Vigil and Singing The Awakened Heart as well as Circle Sings and coaches individual students.

In addition to performing as a jazz vocalist, Patti is a member of The Songsisters along with Sue Fink, Amy Dixon-Kolar and Claudia Anderson, combining talents and sharing harmonies and ideas on stage.
