SORT BY Relevancy
“At 14 I booked myself into a studio and recorded a demo and it was sent to a producer in Nashville. He liked it and I flew back and forth to Nashville a few times. So Nashville was the very first place I ever made music in a studio,” Toronto's Meredith Shaw explains. “And I know I have come back to this place very naturally. Every moment of putting these new songs together has felt right. I just feel very at ease and at home.”
Her passion for country music was rekindled over the past few years through writing trips back down to Nashville, working with The Stellas and Carolyn Dawn Johnson - among others. Meredith's debut country single is called Better Than This - a song she co-wrote.
“For much of the past couple of years most of the people I was writing with, talking with, and dealing with on a regular basis were in country music. I know I am in the right place,” she said adding that she has always been drawn to female singers who not only had powerful voices but powerful personalities, regardless of their genre citing the likes of Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Stevie Nicks, Trisha Yearwood, Martina McBride and fellow Canadians Shania Twain and CDJ as key role models.
Songwriter/producer Jeff Johnson has been brought in to produce the music that will eventually become Meredith’s debut country music album. His track record with breakthrough acts like Wes Mack, and his writing credits with Dallas Smith, Madeline Merlo and Small Town Pistols impressed her.
Meredith is the host of the top-rated weekend radio show in Toronto on boom 97.3, a model with a number of successful national campaigns to her name, a business owner of a gift and custom greeting card company, and a philanthropist who started the Girls Who Believe Festival to help girls and young women reach their fullest potential through affirmation and mentorship.

In the ten years that yours truly has been in Baltimore (this time around!), there are some significant talents that stand out. And always will. Some of the musicianship has been more than stellar. Let's call it haunting. And that is the case with the voice of Kristin Callahan.
Singing since she could speak, the vocal ability that Kristin has is worn like a second skin. She's comfortable singing - and it doesn't matter what genre. Though her golden throat lends itself naturally to Jazz and the Great American Songbook. And one wonders what's in Kristin's future - because if this is the beginning of her career and she's so good NOW - have mercy - what the heck else should we expect?!
Encouraged by both church and school early on, our Maryland Girl found herself in Washington, D.C. Under the tutelage of respected pianist and educator, Vince Evans. Vince was able to steer Kristin in a direction that felt both comfortable and challenging. And that challenge is something that she relishes. Her first project dropped in 2009, "A New Love." Last year, we heard the evolving bliss of Kristin with "One Magic Day." Some of the best in Baltimore and D.C. joined her on these 14 songs. Including Warren Wolf on vibraphone - and Vince Evans (of course!) on piano :)
Kristin's got an amazing opportunity to shine on 12/21/14. She's at the Chesapeake Arts Center - the same place where we last saw Jeffrey Osborne. She'll dip into both of her albums, some holiday tunes (no doubt!), and possibly give us a sneak preview of her forthcoming CD - which takes her into a new direction. 2015 should be QUITE interesting for our guest!
What a pleasure to share Kristin with you again - we had a lot of fun the first time that she visited! 12/16 at 3 p.m. Eastern - join us :)
