Shanta Paloma's EPk
“Paloma is certainly not an ordinary local singer-songwriter. She plays some of the best guitar around and she puts together songs with an interesting variety of instruments and influences. Incorporating gypsy jazz and also 1920s swing into her rock album are fantastic touches, ideas that don’t spring out of an ordinary mind. Paloma has a talent, ideas, and a look that could take her far!”
