Aoede is also WomensRadio.com’s recipient of a “Top Album of the Decade” honor, and “Top Artist of the Year” for 2008, is a driven singer/songwriter who’s one-in-a-million, but it’s not only for the reasons one would expect.
Aoede was the "muse of song" in Greek mythology. And I, Lisa Sniderman, singer-songwriter for Aoede, chose this name both to inspire you and to remember to continually be inspired.
Skeletons of the Muse is Aoede's second full-length album and fourth release, (April 2012). It is comprised of 13 tracks, 6 new and 7 from Affair with the Muse (2011), remixed and mastered with new elements. Aoede has a new enchanting music video for "Fairy Tale Love," Aoede's first single from the new album.
Aoede is co-founder of WomenROCK, a Bay Area-based women-in-music advocacy group, as well as a driven environmentalist with a passion for Blue Gold (water!).
Aoede also suffers from Dermatomyositis-a rare connective-tissue disease... "...my healing process is creating new music. Music is my lifeline. I just cannot stop creating."

What are people saying about Aoede?
"Have not stopped listening to Skeletons of the Muse since the electronic release. The music is GORGEOUS!" (fan)
“Poppy, upbeat, heartfelt, passion-filled, talented – those are just some words one might use to describe Aoede.”
“Aoede (Lisa Sniderman) has a fizzy, fancy-free persona conveyed with a hint of Brit-ness a la Lilly Allen, but is much less edgy." (Music Connection Aug 2011)
"Affair With The Muse’s best moments are when Aoede completely lets her guard down... Full of fun, poppy hooks and gorgeous underscored production that only aids in making these engaging lovelorn themes all the more enticing; Aoede’s easy-to-love pop will forever find a home on your headphones." (Jason Gladu, Stage Door Music Reviews)
