SHEL is four sisters, raised in an atmosphere of creative freedom and diligent study. They have honed their musical skills surgically sharp and blended their personalities and visions into a unified whole. They are a vocal group with outstanding instrumental capabilities and an instrumental group with a thrilling vocal attack. From their fetching, unpredictable songs to their whimsical, hand-made top hats, SHEL makes a profound impression, something they are doing to growing crowds and critical acclaim.
Nestled within SHEL’s enveloping sound, wisps of folk revival, vaudeville, renaissance fairs and steam-punk esthetic blur around one another. Allusions abound to their core influences—The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Harry Nilsson and acoustic super-group Strength In Numbers—but you’ve never heard this before.
Tim Eriksen (“Cold Mountain”) is acclaimed for transforming American tradition with his startling interpretations of old ballads, love songs, shape-note gospel and dance tunes from New England and the Southern Appalachia. He combines hair-raising vocals with inventive accompaniment on banjo, fiddle, guitar and bajo sexto – a twelve string Mexican acoustic bass – creating a distinctive hardcore Americana sound that ranges from the bare bones of solo unaccompanied singing to the lush, multi-layered arrangements on his latest album “Josh Billings Voyage” (timeriksenmusic 2012).
Zara Sky has a romantic soul and a celebratory spirit for life, beauty, and music that touches those around her and which flows through her voice in sincere and deep insights that reveal a beautiful heart. Her music and lyrics are a reflection of someone who has grown stronger through love and heartbreak which, despite the latter, has not tarnished her willingness to love.
