In a new music scene that’s crowded, genre-twisting and attuned to mastery in live performance, local artist of the week SHEL is a must-know young band for anyone who wants to keep up with tomorrow’s greats. Their 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.
Listen to their song “Stronger Than My Fears” below and all week long on Lightning 100! Don’t miss their free show tis Friday at Soulshine Pizza Factory!
