Shanti's Shadow Press Kit



Shanti’s Shadow marks an arrival for Phoebe Hunt, whose artistic and personal journey has deep storylines. An accomplished Americana instrumentalist with foundations in jazz and swing music, Phoebe makes an impressive creative leap with this album. It’s the culmination of a five year journey that has taken her from her Austin roots through Music Row, Brooklyn, and even to India to study with seventh-generation master violinist Kala Ramnath. Along the way, Phoebe found her voice and delivered her most inspired set of songs to date -- the soundtrack to her self-discovery.  


These masterfully crafted songs are brought to life by the musicians Phoebe has gathered – each a virtuoso in their own right. Hunt has a skill for taking seemingly disparate elements and pulling them together into a dazzling kaleidoscope of lush, coherent sound and rhythm patterns. The result is music that swells, crashes and breathes organically under her soulful, plaintive voice. The music seemingly transcends traditional genre, by weaving exotic rhythmic concepts within her roots of Americana, Country and Texas Tinged Swing.
