Shanti, a pop singer/songwriter with lungs to die for, is one of those artists that you just can’t get enough of. Fresh off of the Vans Warped Tour 2008, she may be a pint-sized powerhouse, but it’s hardly her first rodeo. Her new self-released album, "Stranger Days," combines her edge with the catchy pop hooks that we love to sing along to. Deeper and more politically charged than her previous release, Stranger Days fires you up and then breaks you down. This child of musicians debuted onstage in utero, kicking to the drumbeat of her parents' band. Since then, she's licensed some of her music for use in commercial television, acted as a roller derby girl on "CSI: NY," and last year she and husband Greg Attonito, singer of the Bouncing Souls, published "I Went for a Walk" -- a children's book they wrote and illustrated together.



Stating as a child that she was the incarnation of Elvis Presley was only the beginning of Shanti’s road to success. Although her musical style isn't that of his, she does think very highly of the King. It's evident in Shanti's music that the sweeter side of rock n roll is a staple of her diet, while her soulful, powerful lyrics and vocals complete what is perfection. Listen once and find yourself driven by the beat and the melody, listen twice and you'll hear her depth, listen more and you'll be hooked!



Driven to make her mark in the music industry, Shanti released her first record "This Moment" on her own label Allone Records. After a number of TV/Film placements and radio play, Shanti was asked to be part of the 2004, 2006, and 2008 Vans Warped Tour, where she continues to build an eager audience. As part of the Warped Tour family, Shanti currently has items on display at the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame's new exhibit, "12 Years of Mayhem: The Warped Tour!"



Although Shanti has presented herself mostly as an artist in the Pop-Rock genre, she started out in coffee shops, traveling the world with her acoustic guitar in hand. Her new album Stranger Days gives us the best of both of her worlds. Collaborating with producers Chris Wardman and Brad Haehnel, Shanti has created an album that will satisfy the fans of both her Rock and Acoustic shows. The album gives you music with a full band and full production and the same 12 songs in a stripped down acoustic setting, scheduled for release in Nov 2008.



In support of the release of Stranger Days Stripped, Shanti will be hitting the road with friends XO, Smile Smile and Paper Mache for an acoustic tour of the US this fall. Keep your eyes peeled for tour updates and help Shanti start a love revolution!
