It was so lovely to welcome AOEDE aka Lisa Sniderman back for the second time on this week’s Twitter Tuesday Live. When you are in the presence of Lisa, she puts a smile upon your face, and has this way of making you feel so good! Our live audience thought so too! Lisa is one of those people that is not only beautiful on the outside but on the inside too!
A multi-talented singer/songwriter whose hard work in this independent industry is paying off she is finally getting the recognitions she justly deserves!
AOEDE’S most recent achievement was being nominated in 8 categories at the 2014 Indie Music Channel Awards and winning two awards – Best Folk Artist for her song “Perfect Day” and Best Alternative Song for “Gravity” During the show we talked about and played these two songs. The other song that we presented on this week’s show was IS LOVE A FAIRY TALE and this song has been nominated in the 13th Annual, here is the link to vote for AOEDE http://www.independentmusicawards.com/imanominee/13th/Song/Childrens-Music
Last time AOEDE was on our show, we talked about her album “Is Love a Fairy Tale” in which we were introduced to Aoede the muse of music and her wonderful adventure in Wonder Haven on her quest to find out what love really is! This week, we found out more about the second album “What are Dreams Made of?” in which Aoede has a bad dream, children go missing, and Aoede has to explore both overland and underworld where she meets magical characters including fairies, goblins and dream gods, to get to the heart of her dream…
This is a wonderful audio CD, made for children of all ages, including those who still believe in fantasy and magic, and never want to grow up!…that would be me! lol There are such wonderful characters featured throughout the story, and it is best listened to!
The most amazing news of all, and I for one am so excited about this, is that on 24th May at the Carlos Children’s Theater in San Francisco, there is going to be a reading from start to finish of this whole CD, for more information please click this link: http://www.scctkids.com/auditions/what-are-dreams-made-of-auditions/
I am hoping that one day it goes to a full stage production! I can just see it now, with all the wonderful characters like, Luk, Aislin, Morpheus and Phantasos coming to life before our eyes!!!!! Rest assured I will keep you posted on any developments!!!!!
Its becoming the norm now for all our guests to send me a selfie of themselves during the show! Lisa was more than willing, and here she is with her Ukulele and the most adorable hat I have seen in a long time, btw its made out of neckties…..how cool is that!
Anyway, you can find out more about the Lisa, the hat and of course her music by listening to the hour-long show. Please check out this link : http://www.wwirradio.com/home/2014/05/06/episode-146-with-aoede/

What we do matters, even if its only to one person at a time…
“Last night I attended a show of one of my all time favorite bands, Spaceship Days. I departed with my ears ringing , a smile on my face, and my head full of music…and decidedly a much happier person. And possibly even slightly younger then when I arrived.”
This is a snippet of a letter received from a fan who attended a recent SPACESHIP DAYS concert in Raleigh North Carolina…. a reflection of how this fan felt after hearing the band play! http://www.spaceshipdaysmusic.com/cpt_news/hourglass/
