A sweet, refreshing talent. Musically, vocally, eclectically, Shelly is in the middle of where Sarah McLachlan meets Natalie Maines. Piano driven hooks, auto-biographical lyrics and a blend of wilfully honest and strikingly powerful vocals that surround you; this music wears its heart on its sleeve. With an EP in the press has been described as "sensual…..with moments of heart-stopping magic" and live permormances "She was an instant hit with the as they instantly warmed to her powerful country-tinged vocals and keyboard playing as she belted out five emotionally-charged songs" and of the vocals "her voice soars over simple, engaging and effective piano led country-pop". Shelly’s songs captivate; a blend of country, pop and rock inspired by great songwriters such as Jimmy Webb, Randy Newman, Carole King and Beth-Nielsen-Chapman. Comparative to female singer-songwriters like Paula Cole, Chantal Kreviazuk, Jewel, Vonda Shepard and Sarah McLachlan her songs are powerful and emotive, they will leave you wanting more.
