Such confidence exudes itself on her sophomore effort 'My Guilty Pleasure,' a quality that she too has seen emerge this time around. Whereas before, she admits to having to essentially be bribed to get into the studio, any sort of trickery has fallen by the wayside. "I've been more secure and I don't have to practice on the songs so much before I record them," she says. "I feel more stable now; I think it's my voice also, that it's more stable, too. "
But all of this new-found confidence still won't bring her to the stage anytime soon, as she admits that recreating her music wouldn't exactly be easy or, perhaps, even pleasurable. "It's not the most suitable music for live sessions, since its electronic music," she says. "So I don't think you miss it so much. If we were a rock band, then it would become something extra when you play live. But for this kind of music, I don't really think it works."
Even if you can't hear her live, you can check out Shapiro's 'My Guilty Pleasure' in its entirety this week on Spinner.
