Biography

** Shanti is quickly establishing herself as the next next big Dance/Pop act to come out of Los Angeles.  She has produced records with Grammy Award Wining producers. She has won several songwriting competitions, including awards with ISC and Billboard, and has been selling out shows at venues such as CBGB, Cutting Room, Viper Room, Key Club's Plush Lounge, The Mint, The Joint, Aura Nightclub, and The Gig in LA. Her shows are full of high energy, eccentric, visual entertainment. Her fans are diverse, loyal and have great taste.

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?

Get Over Yourself

Written By: Shanti

Intro
Oh

Verse 1
You say "it'll never happen"
I intend to prove your wrong
You say "just give it up hun
Cuz your dreams just can't be won"
You say I'm "not good enough" to get what i want
"just stop believing"
You say I'm "just lost in a dream
Admit defeat"
Never

Hook
I'm so sick to death
So sick to death of you
And your little bitty life
So just shut your mouth
Just shut your mouth and go
Cuz it's my time
No you can't stop
Can't stop me now
Before you disappear
Just take a good look in the mirror babe
And get over yourself

Oh

Verse 2
You say
"I've seen it happen"
Girls like me "just can't be trained"
You say
"I'll never amount to anything"
Now that's just lame
You say I'm "not smart enough
Or cute enough to get attention"
You say why don't I "just give up"
Just give up?
Hey whatever

Hook
I'm so sick to death
So sick to death of you
And your little bitty life
So just shut your mouth
Just shut your mouth and go
Cuz it's my time
No you can't stop
Can't stop me now
Before you disappear
Just take a good look in the mirror babe
And get over yourself

Bridge
You can say what you want
But I know who I am
I know I deserve
I deserve everything
You can't stand in my way
No you can't break me down
Or push me around
Now get
O o over yourself
get over yourself
get over yourself
oh o over yourself
get over yourself
get over yourself

Hook
I'm so sick to death
So sick to death of you
And your little bitty life
So just shut your mouth
Just shut your mouth and go
Cuz it's my time
No you can't stop
Can't stop me now
Before you disappear
Just take a good look in the mirror babe
And get over yourself

Save Me

Written By: Shanti

Save me

Verse 1
I lie alone
With no one but myself to blame
alone
My promises don't mean anything at all
And the closer I get
Can anybody hear me?
Can anybody see me?
Cuz I don't recognize myself anymore
Can't control myself

Hook
I'm in danger
Can't satisfy my needs
Beautiful strangler
You left me here to bleed
Won't you save me
Save me from myself
Will somebody please
I'm down on my knees
Save me from you

Verse 2
In spite of everything
I will forget myself
And never forgive
Oh have I lost my mind
Thinking you were the one
I was blind

Hook
I'm in danger
Can't satisfy my needs
Beautiful strangler
You left me here to bleed
Won't you save me
Save me from myself
Will somebody please
I'm down on my knees
Save me from you

Bridge
Because the love I gave you
No one else will ever know
So I'll be left alone
To swallow what you gave me whole
Oh I, I decided long ago
That no, I, I can never let it go
Once I, try to step away I can't let go of all the pain inside
It grows in me after all this time
Oh I, I decided long ago
That no, I, I can never let it go
Once I, try to step away I can't let go of all the pain inside
It grows in me after all this time

Hook
I'm in danger
Can't satisfy my needs
Beautiful strangler
You left me here to bleed
Won't you save me
Save me from myself
Will somebody please
I'm down on my knees
Save me from you

Oh Save me

Last One Standing

Written By: Shanti

I've learned a lot of things in my life
met my share of losers
but you,
you're the biggest one of all
you're the king baby
the king of losers
and i'm here to take you out
i'm here to take you down

With my heart
And a loaded gun
Meet you where the sun comes
Meet you where the sun comes down
If you're smart
Boy you better run
Cuz when the two of us become one
It's going to be me
It's going to be me
(I'll be the last one standing)

You're a liar
of pathological nature
your diabolical features
give you away
give you away
and your blood
moves like a weapon
dibilitating pain
negotiating shame
i'm tagging you for ransom

With my heart
And a loaded gun
Meet you where the sun comes
Meet you where the sun comes down
If you're smart
Boy you better run
Cuz when the two of us become one
It's going to be me
It's going to be me
(I'll be the last one standing)

You really got my attention boy
It's time to meet your maker
Your days are numbered you lucky boy
Cuz you'd already be dead now
You cut me up tore me inside out
Ripped me open and tore me apart
Now it's time to retaliate
Do unto others and they do unto you, right babe?

With my heart
And a loaded gun
Meet you where the sun comes
Meet you where the sun comes down
If you're smart
Boy you better run
Cuz when the two of us become one
It's going to be me
It's going to be me
(I'll be the last one standing)

Grind

Written By: Shanti

Hit it hit ya that's the way we do it do it
Primp it primp it ya that's the way we like it like it

Touching my body my body imagine you and me
I know you want it you want it cuz I'm the bitch supreme
Superstar nirvana so you think you can impress me
Before you can get it get it first let me do my thing

Hit it hit it ya that's the way we do it do it
Primp it Primp it ya that's the way we like it like it
Feel the beat hit the ground
Throw my hair spin it round now
Shake it shake it shake it
I'll let you push up on it

I'll be your fantasy baby
I'll make you wanna go crazy
Maybe you can undress me
Don't take your time boy
You better work

I know you wanna dance I know you wanna
I know you wanna dance I know you wanna
I know you wanna dance I know you wanna
I know you wanna dance with me

Shanti sublime, I'm super fresh I'm super fly
All you mother f**ers you haters, please
Don't waste my time
I just can't shake this feeling from my hips
Let me unwind them
Look at me dream of me
Have to be the sh## to f#$ with me

I'll be your fantasy baby
I'll make you wanna go crazy
Maybe you can undress me
Don't take your time boy
You better work

Hit it hit it ya that's the way we do it do it
Primp it Primp it ya that's the way we like it like it
Feel the beat hit the ground
Throw my hair spin it round now
Shake it shake it shake it
I'll let you push up on it

I know you wanna dance I know you wanna
I know you wanna dance I know you wanna
I know you wanna dance I know you wanna
I know you wanna dance with me
