Shelley Short
Shelley Short
"Shelley Short achieves the neat trick of employing sparse instrumentation and often glacially paced tempos to create a vibe that's positively radiant. . ." -- No Depression .. "Her soft voice flutters effortlessly over quick flights of melody and slides langourously into sustained notes, not a hint of artifice glinting through" --BLURT .. "Drowsy, intimate, beautiful alt-country from the Portland, Oregon singer-songwriter extraordinaire. Mazzy Star meets Emmylou Harris." -- GIANT.. A Cave, A Canoo will mark Short's third release on Hush Records. Captain Wild Horse (rides the heart of tomorrow) was released in Chicago in 2006, Water For The Day in 2008. A Cave, A Canoo was produced by Short and Alexis Gideon and was recorded at Liophant Studios by Alexis Gideon; some finishing work was done by Adam Selzer at Type Foundry Studios. The album was written and recorded over the period of a year, and its depth of sound reflects the wealth of time spent in its making. There was little to no pressure -- be it financial or emotional -- in its composition, allowing Short to focus her attention on the detail and nuance in each song. As a whole, the record is crafted with an interwoven, almost circular, approach, allowing the songs to slowly stretch out and find their home. Some songs took weeks to mull over and define while others represent first takes, captured at two in the morning. US Booking: Mary Jones Management: mary@maryjonesmanagement.com ..
