Bio

An artist, an activist and an explicit story-teller, Shelley uses her music not only to express the way she sees the world, but to create the world that she wants to see.

Desirous of all expressions, Shelleys Folk Pop songs flirt with elements of Rock and Electronica, imparting a pure joy about music and it’s power.

“Truly an artist with international flair” (AU review) her powerful voice has taken her around Australia, Hong Kong, China, England and nine tours of the United States. She has performed to festival crowds of over 30,000 people.

Lyrically, this tune is powerful and I love the charming way in which Shelley delivers it.
