Hello! I'm Lisa Sniderman, an ward-winning singer-songwriter, artist, author, filmmaker and playwright aka: Aoede. I create quirky folk pop, and songs about longing, life, love, relationships, as well as full-length fantasy musicals on audiobooks. I've been honored with more than 55 awards for my songwriting, audiobooks and stage plays since 2012! Highlights include: Independent Music Awards Vox Pop Winner 2014; International Songwriting Competition 2013, 2012 Winner, and John Lennon Songwriting Contest 2013, 2012 Finalist. I'm also privileged to have received multiple Indie Music Channel Awards (Winner) 2012, 2013, 2014, 2018.

Living with a chronic illness for more than 10 years, I create, record, and share my original musicals, art and music as a healing path and to give back, and seek to use my gifts and experience to be a light and a muse. Music and art are my lifelines; I just cannot stop creating. I published my memoir: “A Light in the Darkness: Transcending Chronic Illness through the Power of Art and Attitude” (Crimson Cloak Publishing, Sep 2018), chronicling ten years living with rare chronic illness while obsessively creating to heal. I recently collaborated with more than 50 artists around the world also creating to heal and produced an online video showcase featuring conversations with 45 artists and a live/webcast event (Dec 2018), sparking interest in making a feature documentary on the art of healing.

"Keep Shining" Recording
Before the closing of the live/streamed show I produced in December 2018 for "Lights in the Darkness-Creating to Heal" at the Dragon Theatre in Redwood City, CA, our performers came together as a group and sang a new song I wrote for the event called “Keep Shining”, an expressive, empowering anthem intended for those who may want to give up. It was inspired by all of the stories I absorbed during the past months during conversations with 45 artists from around the world who are also creating to heal. While I voiced my inner fears, doubts, questions and insecurities, our live performers kept repeating the chorus to "Keep Shining" as a powerful, uplifting counterpoint. I just collaborated with our ‘lights in the darkness’ community on a new recording of this song where more than 17 artists lent their voices to sing the choruses. This will also be the title track for a documentary I am making under the same name.

I invite you to check out my links below, and please connect and tell me what inspires you!
