Kalamazoo, Michigan

songstress Shai-Li

did it all

on her new

six song EP.

Wrote, arranged,

performed, engineered,

produced, and mixed.

With original art

for each piece

(including work

from familiar names

notalent and Alone Time),

the short and sweet

project is a summertime

hammock swing.

It's slow and encapsulating

pop meshed with R&B

and meditative soul.

From the piano-driven

“Dawn's Arrival”

to the grooving

“Baby Jane”,

the cloudy “Atlantis”

to the aquatic

and acoustic “Forest Fire”.

Front to back,

Coping Mechanisms

is a wondrous

and moving display

of talent

for DIY Shai-Li.
