Shanika Maria is a different breed of songwriter. In this interview, she describes composing by feel and writing on instinct, sometimes only figuring out what her songs are about after they are finished. Her 2019 album, Subtle Uncertainties, is a powerful collection of songs as well as a textural evolution from the sparse arrangements of her debut EP, Childish Games.
This episode ends with 3 original songs. We were short on time near the end and I clearly missed something in the sound-check as the electric guitar turned out irreparably crunchy, but Shanika's voice and performance shine through.
