When the gatekeepers of the music world tried to contain the superpowers of four creative sisters – walls fell. Tossing away the assembly-line process and embracing the freedom of the unknown, SHEL is slated to release a brand new EP in early 2020, Wild Child, produced with Joey Verskotzi and Tim Myers (previously of OneRepublic). Songs about liberation from fear, embracing uniqueness and celebrating it, about the inner wild that calls us to climb trees and touch stars, to unite in love amidst the storm, to follow the unknown road, and finally, to come home to the warm embrace of family.
SHEL has an extensive tour history across the U.S. and Europe, playing everything from small club shows, to major festivals, and even sharing the stage with world-renowned orchestras. SHEL’s songs can also be heard in numerous films, TV shows, and commercials including The Best of Me, Queen America (Facebook Watch), The Fourth Phase, Charged, the trailer for Women In Sports, Shameless (Showtime), The Fosters (Freeform), Riverdale (Netflix), Search Party (TBS), and many more.
In a new music scene that’s crowded, genre-twisting and attuned to mastery in live performance, SHEL’s spellbinding live performances tap deep skills as instrumentalists and total trust to generate improbable power on stage. They share some contemporary musical DNA with Americana bands, Punch Brothers and Crooked Still, but just as surely with adventuresome artists such as tUnE-yArDs, St. Vincent and Alt-J. The future belongs to artists who go beyond mere genre blending by focusing on their inner music and the four powerful personalities of SHEL do just that.
