"EP Review"

Genre: pop
reviewed by Annette Warner, Gogirls Music

Now I know what Norah Jones would sound like if she decided to weave through some funky "street party" style pop. Shanti's tunes are ALL stylishly competent enough to rise to the top of the charts. Strong, precise vocals lead the way through some hip, well arranged music and it's clear that this artist is on her way to a fabulous career. I dig it completely and look forward to the entire CD.

"Taxi Reviews"

"Shanti - You are one talented gal. Your vocals are a knockout. You've got a great look and a unique sound. The blues/gospel/rock/hip-hop blend of "Stone Cold Lovin'" is a real treat."-Taxi

"Great stuff, Shanti! What's undeniable is your powerful, distinctive voice. Additionally, you show experience with how to use it in your performances. As I mentioned, these song have a range of styles incorporating a bit of danchall, rock, blues with R&B and a dash hip hop, but you show that you're able to handle each of them equally well. The songs were really well crafted (melody, lyric, structure, music). All the best and good luck! "- Taxi -

Here's Shanti's Love Story:

We all know that love is one of the best things about being alive. We also know it can be the hardest thing that you do in your life. In my new EP, “Neon Love”, I let you into my personal diary where I tell you my secret struggles and successes with love. Each secret leads you to the truth that ultimately, love for yourself is the most important love of all. And I believe life’s too short to let people stand in the way of your dreams.

In my new EP, "Neon Love", I wanted everything to come from me and not from the Grammy Award winning producers I have worked with in the past. I wanted a direct connection with you, my fans, and not just sing some songs that were written by other people like other artists do.

Of course, the act of self-love comes with it’s pitfalls. We all have that one voice of doubt that comes from people in your life or from inside of us and I am no stranger to that voice. In my song “Get Over Yourself”, I let you in on one of my private moments of self-doubt while at the same time never letting that voice of doubt defeat me.

I want love. And I want it the way I want it. Settling is never an option. In my song “Grind”, I talk about how that self-love has to start with confidence in who we are and knowing what we deserve.

My title song “Neon Love” shows us what can happen when you don’t settle in love. You find a love that is what you have always wanted. Someone that makes you feel alive. Because you should always get what you want out of life and every relationship. And especially love.

In “Neon Love”, I remind you that you don't have to settle for anything less than what you are entitled to. That the most important thing we have is love; love for others, and more importantly, love for ourselves. And no matter what happens to us, we can never forget who we are. My personal philosophy is that I deserve everything. Don't you?
