Lauded and award-winning singer/songwriter, Lisa Sniderman, aka: Aoede (pronounced A-E-D), released her third full-length album and overall fifth release, Is Love A Fairy Tale?, on September 18, 2012.  Is Love A Fairy Tale?, comes just a few short months after the release of her acclaimed Skeletons of the Muse (April 2012), which shot her to #1 on Reverbnation's San Francisco pop chart and #8 on the national chart. “The idea was to create a compelling fairy tale story for tweens, and I wrote the entire script and created a whole world for Aoede. I’ve come to believe that everything I do is art, whether I am making a music video or writing a script for a children’s album. It isn’t so much the medium but the expression and desire to connect with new audiences that drives me.” Fans of artists like Ingrid Michaelson, Regina Spektor, Feist, Lily Allen and A Fine Frenzy have long resonated with Aoede’s passionate songwriting and inimitable, breathy and enchantingly quirky soprano. Capping a career full of songwriting and recording awards and accolades for Aoede, Is Love A Fairy Tale? was chosen Children’s Album of the Year by LA Music Awards, which also nominated the singer/composer for Hot AC Artist, Record of the Year and Female Singer/Songwriter. It has also received three prestigious Children’s Awards, including Creative Child Magazine’s “Preferred Choice Award”; Tillywig Toy “Sterling Fun” Award and Family Review Center’s “Gold Award.” It was also considered for Best Children’s Album at the 55th Grammy Awards. Aoede’s other recent designations include: Finalist in the 2012 John Lennon Songwriting Contest for “Little Things,” featured on the album; International Songwriting Competition (ISC) 2012 Finalist for “Fairy Tale Love”; Akademia Music Awards 2013-Best Children’s Album and Best Music Video for “Fairy Tale Love”; 2012 Artists in Music Awards (AIMA) Album of the Year for Affair with the Muse and Best Folk/Acoustic Artist; 2012 Indie Music Channel’s Best Female Folk Artist and Best Folk Producer and five nominations for 2013. More recent accolades include being a winner in the Children’s Music Category for Fairy Tale Love in the International Songwriting Competition and Best Folk Recording (“Bittersweet”) and Best Folk Music Video (“Fairy Tale Love”) at the IMC (Indie Music Channel) Awards.
