We love music. We love artists. We love songwriters. We love Texans. Shellee Coley has, and is… all that. Just imagine a soulful, thoughtful, and slightly southern perspective on a singer-songwriting style. Reminiscent of Alison Krauss but more playful, with the ability to gracefully pull from the souls of early Jewel and Lisa Loeb, Shellee is heartwarming to say the least.
So, not only are we going to stock her vinyl for the rest of the year, she is going to come into the shop and play a few songs for us! Shellee will be signing vinyl, and possibly taking a request or two for her die-hard fans… (link to event below).
This is just the first of many of these “pop-up” acoustic sets here at Vino & Vinyl as we explore different ways to share the arts with our community. Here’s an excerpt from her bio:
“Shellee has been pursuing music most of her life in one way or another. She attended college at Belmont University in Nashville and got her start as a writer there, but it wasn’t until after having two children, that she really began to pursuing her career as an artist. Since 2009, she’s put out 3 studio projects with Jeffery Armstreet of Magnolia Red/ Red Tree Studios. She’s opened for such prominent artists as James McCartney, Teri Hendrix, Susan Gibson, Gretchen Peters, Greg Laswell and Karla Bonoff. Shellee was a top 12 finalist at the 2012 Songwriter’s Serenade and a finalist in The Bugle Boy’s Showcase for Aspiring Artists. Since 2012 she’s been working with young songwriters, doing camps and private classes with Real Life Real Music, as well as her own company called Circle Sessions. In the past two years she has spent most of her time playing regionally, but also toured through Tennessee, North Carolina and up the East Coast, having the wonderful privilege of opening for Mark Germino at The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, as well as being one of the featured supporting songwriters at the 2014 Dripping Springs Songwriter’s Festival. She is currently working at Red Tree Recording Studio as the Creative Director as well as recording a new EP, slated for late 2015.”
