The five multidimensional tracks, feature contributions from Thievery Corporation’s Rob Garza and UK producer Alex Cowan (better known as TM Juke). Writing and directing the songs herself, she says, “resulted in the music being very playful and sexy. But, it also has depth, soul and heavy beats. It’s very much me.” Find out more about Shana Hallagan at: http://www.shanahalligan.comListen to the Paper Butterfly EP:http://soundcloud.com/unknownbreakthrough/sets/shana-halligan-paper-butterfly/s-fQGbpWatch the video for Thievery Corporation’s “Is it Over” featuring Shana Halligan:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WbxYzAG2I4&noredirect=1
