Shueh-li traveled from Australia; her birth country .. sowed musical seeds in Singapore who adopted her and her aspirations, and sojourned several cities before laying her proverbial hat down in Nashville. Charmed by the music city, she began writing 'A Working Title - special edition'.
“Nashville is surrounded by amazing song and lyric writers. They inspired me to make my story-telling more colloquial and less cryptic; to take time to tell a story. To emote as the story-teller.”
In an indie career that has spanned three albums and countless shows, Shueh-li is best known for layering the theremin, tin-whistle, guqin, exotic synth and vocal lines, to create bombastic productions. She has written and produced everything from love songs to fusion-pop, theatrical soundscapes to prog-rock!
“A truly amazing talent; informed, professional, warm, diverse, exciting, inspiring.” Arts Monthly Australia.
