ShaliniShalini is a guitarist and bass player who is crazy about rock/pop music. As a little kid, she was mesmerized by the Supremes, Elvis, and the Beatles. Later, she gravitated toward punk influenced 70s and 80s music: Blondie, Cheap Trick, X, the Undertones, the Clash, the Sex Pistols, the Damned, Kirsty MacColl, the Bangles, the Go-Go's, R.E.M, and the Smiths. 

In recent years, she has been interested in Scandinavian bands like Soundtrack of our Lives, Sigur Ros and the Raveonettes. Favorite North American songwriters include AC Newman, Liz Phair, Nina Gordon of Veruca Salt, and John Paul Keith, formerly of Stateside. 

In 2010, Paisley Pop released Shalini's seventh commercial recording, Magnetic North. The six song EP of original material is available as a traditional CD and as an MP3 download from Paisley Pop and 125 RecordsRead Shalini's blog about the making of the EP.

Shalini formed a new band called Party Battleship in 2014 after relocating from Chicago to Charlotte, NC. It's more of a democratic group with artistic input from the other members. The band released a full-length original recording Cake + Flames in 2017, available on CD Baby and bandcamp. See facebook.com/partybattleship for details, and visit these links for the PB story:
