Tei Shi was afraid of the dark as a child, and the title of her ‘Crawl Space’ album harks to the safe haven she’d retreat to for comfort. Dreamy, soulful, and inviting, her music kind of feels like a place that provides a bit of refuge, too. In her extended ‘New Shapes’ interview with Vevo’s Lizzy Plapinger, the Bueno Aries native and Berklee-educated musician recounts singing into a boombox as a child, using those tapes on ‘Crawl Space,’ and having that become a self-affirming moment for her artistry – even though she has hard time coming to grips with the term “artist.” See what she says about living in Manhattan’s Chinatown and trouncing daily phobias in our candid chat.
