In Their Words: “For me, Shanti’s Shadow feels like my coming of age story. I’ve had to face every one of my fears throughout the process of creating this album. From being intensely vulnerable and honest with myself in the songs, to stretching beyond what feels comfortable financially to bring the album to life, I have had to break through many barriers in my mind to come to a place where I truly believe it is possible to create art that doesn’t compromise artistic integrity.
Honestly, it was when I found this group of guys to play music with, who feel like my brothers, that I knew the music would be so deeply honored. I feel like they are wizards who could elevate any artist they support. When I am making music with this crew, I feel that we can do no wrong. Around our house, whenever we are in a music setting, we always joke around, pumping one another up, saying, ‘You can’t sink this ship.’ Once I felt that feeling, I knew I was willing to do whatever it would take to nurture it and bring it to the world.” — Phoebe Hunt
