Tapestry of Life
After four years of planning and working on her second album, Shal Sagan has finally released 'Tapestry of Life'. Born and bred in Sarawak, Malaysia, Shal Sagan is of mix parentage whose maternal roots go as far as Scotland. Shal's interest in music was formed when she was at a very young age. Her parents loved music and would have music by The Beatles, Elvis, etc, playing during car rides or just on the stereo at home. By age five, she attended piano lessons, but her interest in piano switched to guitar a few years later. In November 2004, Shal launched her album entitled "A Special Note" in Kuching, Sarawak by Shzogawa Records, a record label conceptualized by Shal which helps in the production/recording/distributing & promotion of her products. The album was produced & recorded by Kiya of Zanzibar Studios and was mixed & mastered by Don Bartley of Studios 301 in Sydney, Australia. "Shal's ability to play the guitar and at the same time sing in her unique style portrays flair and gifts. Her creativity and ability as a budding and promising artiste should be an inspiration to all young people who aspires to excel in the world of music. Shal has created an icon for Sarawak, an icon for her family and an icon for herself. I believe Shal can one day reach her dream and go International", said Hanifah Taib-Alsree, Executive Director of Kristal Harta Sdn Bhd - Cats Radio during the launching of "A Special Note". In 2006, Shal started working on her second album with Multi-Australian Recording Industry Awards engineer Greg Henderson. "Listening" is the first song to be recorded for this album. Throughout 2006 to 2008, Shal has been recording new material for the album. The album will consist of ten songs written, composed & sung by Shal. 'Tapestry of Life' hits the stores in November 2008.
