Aoede (AED)

About: Aoede

Lauded and award-winning singer/songwriter, Lisa Sniderman, aka: Aoede (pronounced A-E-D), released her third full-length album and overall fifth release,
Is Love A Fairy Tale?
, on September 18, 2012.

Is Love A Fairy Tale?, comes just a few short months after the release of her acclaimed Skeletons of the Muse (April 2012), which shot her to #2 on Reverbnation's San Francisco pop chart and #39 on the national chart.

Fans of Ingrid Michaelson, Regina Spektor, Feist, Lily Allen and A Fine Frenzy resonate with Aoede's prodigal and passionate songwriting skills that synergistically blend melody and lyric into compellingly captivating musical vignettes conveyed in her imitable breathy, bouncy, and enchantingly quirky soprano.

Aoede has garnered numerous accolades for her music, developed a popular blog, engaged fans through social media, participated in national motivational speaking engagements where she offers support, advice, and encouragement, and won multiple songwriting awards, including the 2012 Artists in Music Awards Album of the Year for Affair with the Muse, and Best Folk/Acoustic Artist.

In April 2012, Indie Music Channel awarded Aoede Best Female Folk Artist and Best Folk Producer; the 2012 LA Music Awards nominated Aoede for Hot AC Artist of the Year, Record of the Year, and Female Singer-Songwriter, and Aoede has been nominated in the 2013 Artists in Music Awards.

Is Love A Fairy Tale? already received three prestigious Children’s Awards: Creative Child Magazine’s “Preferred Choice Award”; “Sterling Fun” from Tillywig Toy Awards, and Family Review Center’s “Gold Award.” Is Love A Fairy Tale? is being considered for Best Children’s Album in the 55th Annual Grammy Awards.

“I found this collection quite interesting. It was almost like listening to a musical. Each track had some narration and some music but the Is Love A Fairy Tale? CD makes one continuous story. I would say that the story itself is good for pre-teens and would be especially appealing to girls. It talks about a young woman in search of love. She’s not sure what it is or how to find it. She looks lots of places and meets lots of interesting creatures in the mystical land where she lives. In the end we learn that ‘love is whatever you want it to be’ and is ‘the greatest thing of all’.”

"How fun! I really enjoyed this "audio book". It flows warmly, intertwining music, narration and leading questions, which take you in to the story line with a pre-set stage for what you are about to embark on. Between the sound effects and excellent narration, you can visualize the story well, as you walk along with the characters you will meet on the way. I love to put these on in the car when going for a drive ... everyone can relax and enjoy the story together. Then, when we stop for a bite to eat, we have something to talk about - the story! This is a well produced audio CD and I know you will enjoy it. Reading is awesome - I love to read! However, sometimes reading is not practical or inviting, which are the times you want something such as this to kick back and enjoy. Great for children ages 9-14 but I think all ages will enjoy the fun tale."
Family Review Center (GOLD AWARD)

“Aoede (Lisa Sniderman) has a fizzy, fancy-free persona conveyed with a hint of Brit-ness a la Lilly Allen... charming ukulele fueled Love Proof whose quaint simplicity and deft vocal harmonies recall the Ditty Bops. This artist has a unique spirit.”
Music Connection Magazine

“Aoede's refreshing vocals that float effortlessly over her uplifting productions bring a smile to every face… Skeletons of the Muse features some undeniably stand out tracks including 'Love Proof' and 'Fairytale Love' and contribute to an outstanding production of Music that showcases how different and unique this artist is, a rare talent that has shown consistency and versatility throughout her output paving the way for a bright and expanding future.”
The BizzNiz

“Easily relatable to anyone with that care-free easygoing love of music…The music of Aoede is purely meant to uplift the soul and put a smile in your heart. It is no wonder that Aoede has been receiving acclaim across the board within the music industry already, because no one should be without a smile in their heart.”
L. White R.S.M Promotions; Skope Magazine

"Aoede spreads the inspiration she carries within her to whatever she does… Her radiant soprano voice mingles with her own quirky brand of DIY pop and heartfelt, powerful lyrics."
Trina Carré, Fourculture: issue two

“For AOEDE, you cannot tag her as a single genre artist, in fact, it is much harder to pin her down in one category, because her music is outside any realm of typical categories. Instead, put her in your "Popular" playlist and hit repeat often, because if you enjoy music by Regina Spektor, and Feist, Ingrid Michaelson then you will definitely enjoy AOEDE.”
Mikey Jay, The Great Unknowns Presents

“Poppy, upbeat, heartfelt, passion-filled, talented – those are just some words one might use to describe Aoede.”
MarsBands Reviews

“Once every blue moon, the universe is blessed with the laughter of an angel. There may be a blue moon for awhile because the musical vibe of Aoede encompasses that angelic sound. Beyond the voice, there is inspirational songwriting and a metaphysical presence within every note… Her story is as compelling as her willingness to share it with the world.”
Independent Music and Media

“One of the fun things about diving into a sea of mostly DIY music is “discovering” an unsigned artist who could be the next big thing. At the very least, it’s easy to find more than a few folks who are going to have exciting careers which I will enjoy following. One is San Francisco area singer/songwriter Aoede (Lisa Sniderman, who also has a bitchin’ blog). With a vocal style similar to Feist or Fiona Apple, her songs are more lush and ornate than either.”
Walking on a Wire-Artist of the Week

“Bringing pop worthy hooks together with alt rock instrumentation and smoky production...”
Massive Music

“It is a story-telling, magic-making kind of music… her vocals add a lightness, a radiance that dances on the edges of the music itself. It’s like the halo on an angel, the shimmering light on a firefly’s back.”
