Tai Shan is a pop-folk singer, composer and songwriter known for her collection of over 50 songs inspired by works of literary. Her second album, Living Fiction, featured the catchy ode to individuality, “Cool to Be Weird,” which was chosen as the anthem for the Girl Scouts of America’s Power Up Program. In 2016, Tai was awarded a Jack Straw Culture Culture artist recording grant to complete her second album, focusing on female narratives. A Cornish College of the Arts- trained classical and jazz composer, Tai draws from a treasure chest of musical know-how. Her catchy, layered melodies echo John Mayer and Jack Johnson while her soprano soars somewhere between Joni Mitchell, Alanis Morrisette, and Adele. Tai has played live on NPR and at nearly every major venue in Seattle including Benaroya Hall, the Moore Theater, the Tractor, festivals across the West coast and the famous Bluebird Cafe in Nashville.
