From 2014:

Shana Falana Sings Herself to Sleep… (available as a digital download and limited edition red cassette) is a living document of the mid-1990’s San Francisco music scene that I grew up in. Since last spring, Mike (my drummer/partner) and I have been painstakingly digitizing and compilng dozens of my old tapes into a 60-minute suite that partakes in the lo-fi crunch of it's era (think Daniel Johnston, early Beck). The collage of demos, field recordings, and early studio cuts are tied together by my ‘audio diaries,’ which I recorded on my handheld tape recorder while...taking a bath...listening to Native American music...things like that. ALL of my different bands are represented here; 90s grunge with Thundersuite (my two piece band with Jen Shagawat of Shellshag), there are two tracks produced by Kelley Stoltz (Sub Pop, Third Man Records) who I also used to drum for, my self-help singalong group The Wonder Sisters, and the Bulgarian women’s choir I helped organize, known as Handmaiden America.

In 2003 I relocated to New York City “to be closer to Europe.” I've included a few tracks from that time as well, including "Gone" by Skirt (a two-piece dream-pop project that I instantly fell into) because it is such a clear link from my San Francisco days to what I am currently recording. As I explain in the campaign video, the necessary promotional pieces (press, radio, booking agent) have been put into place for us to make the trip overseas. Now all we need is the funding. That’s where the tape comes in!
