An accomplished Americana instrumentalist with foundations in jazz and swing music, Phoebe makes animpressive creative leap with this record. Its the culmination of a five year journey that has taken herfrom her Austin roots through Music Row, Brooklyn, and even to India to study withseventh-generation master violinist Kala Ramnath. Along the way, Phoebe found her voice anddelivered her most inspired set of songs to date -- the soundtrack to her self-discovery.
Shantis Shadowmarks an arrival for Phoebe Hunt, whose artistic and personal journey has deep storylines.These masterfully crafted songs are brought to life by the musicians Phoebe has gathered each a virtuoso in their own right. Phoebe is skilled at 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 Phoebes soulful, plaintive voice. Sounds of Americana and Texas Tinged Swing are woven with exotic rhythmic concepts culled from Phoebes time in India.
Shantis Shadowis always surprising yet comfortingly familiar. Prior to recording this album, the entire band traveled to India to study at an ashram outside of Pune with master violinist Kala Ramnath. In India, they practiced music, meditation and philosophy sometimes spending as many as 10 hours a day working and re-working Tats and Ragas. This intense, experiential study is apparent in the seamless musical play and improvisation ofShanti's Shadow.
