to write a review

Lisa Loeb

great new album in a barren time for music
These great songs are little stories, Tina's voice is beautiful and true. This record is a welcome piece of work in such barren musical times.

Jay Larsen

Great stories, Great songs, a Tapestry for the Ears
Brings me back to the days when the lyrics of a song could not be predicted, and the story they told engaged the listener until the end. Tina Shafer's songs are crafted like tapestries for the ears. With depth, life, and feeling, these songs will draw you in and engage you, and reveal the whole picture in the end, like a fine tapestry.

Eric Janson

Poetry from the heart expressed through great melodies.
Tina's tunes are not just great on the ears, they feed the brain and the heart as well. Her vivid imagery will connect your emotions with old memories -- the words will connect with the threads of your own life, because the themes are universal. If you listen, you will be touched.

I wish I was your brother. Where's the Grammy nominations???
Ran into this pretty much by accident. One of the best CD's I heard in a long long time. Celine & others have had their day in the sun. Now, thankfully it's time for TINA to shine and from what I've been listening to, no one can make these beautiful [Music & lyrics.] songs shine brighter then TINA. Thanks for the magic, pretty lady, & all the best in the future.


brings me back to a time when songs were pure and deep
I have been in a weel known band my whole life and this artists is just blowing my mind. where did she come from
why isnt she known world over like we were?

Peter Zizzo

Moving, personal work; a folk tinged deeply felt tapestry
Tina Shafer's "Backyard Sky" is a postcard from the heart. It is a record of beautiful fok-tinged songs drawn from lessons, in both fulfillment and loss, learned from that bravest of acts: loving. Shafer is an intelligent, gifted, and sensitive artist. She is also an evolved spirit.

I still love this record
I have been listening to this cd now for over 2 years and still love it! Tina is one of the most gifted singer/songwriters out there. She writes from a place of great emotional depth and truth. Her voice soothes and pulls at my heart. I am so happy that Tina made this record and am anxiously awaiting more!!! : )
