City Arts magazine raves “ Tai Shan’s music is like hugging a total stranger—kind of awkward and totally wonderful.” She has been described as sounding like John Mayer and Jack Johnson with the voice of Joni Mitchell. Her clear soprano voice and complex guitar melodies have been featured on nationally released CD’s, international videos, local TV and radio stations. She has performed throughout the West Coast at venues such as Seattle’s Benaroya Hall and San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral. This has resulted in her developing a dedicated following and fan base. She has composed for jazz ensembles and string quartets. Her songs have been featured on several promotional albums. 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.”

In 2005, as a student she was chosen to represent Seattle’s renowned Cornish College of the Arts with her song “Love Will Kill You in Time.” The song was recorded with internationally known jazz bassist Chuck Deardorf and was nationally distributed. Later, in 2009, she graduated from Cornish Magna Cum Laude, with honors. 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. She also donated profits from the song to People for Puget Sound, a non-profit organization, dedicated to the restoration of the Puget. In addition her music has been featured on over 100 videos, which have been distributed in Southeast Asia and China.
