MusicTelevision.Com presents SHEL

Literally, one of the most dynamic, original and organic groups on the planet is this quartet of ladies known as SHEL.

Down below is their latest music video to their song titled Rooftop which is part of their upcoming 2016 album titled Just Crazy Enough.

Music Television presents SHEL - Just Crazy Enough

For those not yet familiar with SHEL, it's a group a four sisters (Sarah, Hannah, Eva and Liza) who long ago tapped into their individual musical genius and then onto their collective genius' as they began to create a great organic band with real instrumentation and sweet voices and brilliant harmonies (with no auto-tune and very little (if any) production necessary) backed by their impeccable musical poetry and arranging skills. Their studio recordings are in direct alignment as to how they sound when they perform live. And they nail their stuff live, as is evidenced in earlier live and studio recordings which you will find at the links at the bottom of this page. They are truly badass!

I first heard the group by way of Eva who had made a friend request on Ron Paul's official MySpace page during the 2007-2008 presidential election cycle. I personally ran the page on Congressman Paul's behalf and when I noticed Eva's friend request accompanied by a photo of her leaning on a musical instrument case in a Chaplinesque pose, there was something about her... that little thing that made me go "hmmmm?"

I browsed her page and quickly learned that she was a truly inspired artist with this amazing sense of light as if she were the world's greatest photographer with this grand sense of poetry, irony, tragedy mixed into all the mediums she works in.

After doing a little digging, I ended up on the telephone with Eva's mother from their farm in Colorado and before I knew it I was having a conversation with Eva and getting emails from her with mp3's of some amazing music that she personally wrote. Not long after that I learned that she was part of something bigger! And that was and still is SHEL.  At the time (2007-2008), I was the sole overseer of Eric Clapton's official MySpace page, and I had the priviledge of organizing Clapton's Top Friends List. Next to various legends, I would handpick and feature young lesser known acts of substance to try to give them a little exposure. I added SHEL to the list. Fans picked up on it and loved them to the max :)

It is now almost a decade later and the group is still constantly creating and traveling in non-stop work mode. They write, they record, they gig, they tour and they shoot and ultimately tell stories through their always evolving music video repertoire. In their own original way, they seem to be influenced by and often seem to be channeling energy from T.S. Elliot and greats like Charlie Chaplin and groups like Jethro Tull and Led Zeppelin. Their videos which are more like little films put them into a category that transcends music and catapults them into being more like multi-media artists, actors and filmmakers. They are the real deal, the genuine article. Although they had an amazing sound and vision 8 years ago and I still love hearing and seeing their earliest work, where they are now did not happen overnight. These are four ladies who have really been paying their dues for a major portion of their lives and it shows in everything they do. Enjoy! GC
