  • Biography Tai’s clear, Joni Mitchell-like voice has been featured in international film series such as Tales from Patchwork Farms, TV shows like ArtZone, and has performed at regional venues such as the Triple Door, the Moore, Folklife Festival, Benaroya Hall and has toured throughout the US. Seattle City Arts magazine describes Tai Shan’s music is like “hugging a total stranger—kind of awkward and totally wonderful.” Grammy Nominee Jovino Santos-Neto calls her a “Seamstress of Melodies,” and Earshot Jazz winner Randy Halberstat states “She will ambush you with her compositions and unique guitar voicing.” Tai Shan has shared the stage with Washington’s Governor Gregoire when Tai performed her environmental song, “Tiny Planet.” The song was later featured in the HBO documentary The Search for Turtle Island. . Lately she as been working with the National Wildlife Federation to protect migrating wildlife in Yellowstone National Park by donating the proceeds of her next EP 1000 Miles to Yellowstone.
