FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AWARD WINNING SINGER/SONGWRITER WITH A CRIPPLING DISEASE
USES HER GIFT OF MUSIC TO HELP HEAL HERSELF AND OTHERS

METRO MEDIA GROUP – LOS ANGELES, CA   (August 15, 2013)  –  Award winning singer/songwriter Aoede (pronounced: a-e-dee) is no stranger to overcoming obstacles and realizing her dreams. In April, Aoede won “Best Folk Recording” and “Best Folk Music Video” at the 2013 Indie Music Channel Awards held at the House of Blues in Hollywood, was a winner in International Songwriting Competition for Children’s Music and she recently earned award nominations for the 2013 Hollywood in Music Awards as well as the 2013 Indie Fest USA and The Indie Gathering Independent Film Festivals for her outstanding music, videos and her song, “Fairy Tale Love”.

But Aoede’s life is more than creating award-winning music because just walking the red carpet at Hollywood events can often be a struggle.  Aoede, whose real name is Lisa Sniderman, suffers from Dermatomyositis, a debilitating disease that attacks the immune system, muscles and skin, for which there is no known cure.  Yet, while Aoede’s body may be under attack, she never lets the disease affect her mind and spirit and uses that strength to encourage others.

“Since the beginning of time, music has always been used as a way to heal”, Aoede says.  “It can be used as a way to heal oneself emotionally, mentally, as well as physically, and I’m so proud of how my music has been received by others.  It has given me the opportunity to reach out to others and share with them the gift of hope through the gift of music.”

And Aoede is using her gift of music to help others, especially kids, through the release of her new CD, “Is Love a Fairy Tale”, which takes listeners on a musical adventure of enchantment and wonder.  Aoede is donating a portion of the proceeds from “Is Love a Fairy Tale” to benefit Cure JM Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to finding a cure for Juvenile Myositis.

Aoede just kicked off a music tour promoting her “Is Love a Fairy Tale” CD.  For more info, go to www.AoedeMuse.com and www.IsLoveAFairytale.com.
