SHEL - Stronger Than My Fears

Music Television presents SHEL and their song Stronger Than My Fears - Photo by Joetography

Here is a super beautiful sounding band. They write with poetic lyrics, have stunning harmonies and deliver lush organic instrumental arrangements. It's four sisters: Sarah, Hannah, Eva and Liza. They use the acronym SHEL as the groups name. Together they wrote and recorded the song featured below titled Stronger Than My Fears. The song, not the video, is going to be on So You Think You Can Dance this MONDAY night. Episode 1404 (airdate: 7/10/17). (Above Photo by Joetography)

SHEL - Stronger Than My Fears

Each of the sisters brings something different and utterly charming to the table. Their wide range of songwriting/arranging, instrumental/vocal skills and overall artistic repertoire, filmed/photographed art and sketched art, fashion and their great sense of lighting has tons of substance. Their songs have original lyrics that suck you inside like T. S. Eliot poems. Their music videos are often like the world of Charlie Chaplin. All of their past music going back at more than ten years is worth digging through. (see links at the bottom of this post).

The above video was made not by SHEL, but was a promotional trailer from the Women Sports Film Festival. The video features clips from several entries in the film festival. The video features Olympic Boxer T-Rex (Claressa Shields) and many others, listed below.

LYRICS
STRONGER THAN MY FEARS

All my fears are running wild
Dragging me mile after mile
Think it’s time I take the reigns
Play the hero for a change

'Cause I’m stronger, I’m stronger than my fears

Over fields of doubt I march
Fighting hard to free my heart
Still I hear my old fears call
“Who are you to stand so tall?”

Well, I‘m stronger, I’m stronger than my fears

Everyday we have a choice
Fear has nothing but a voice
It may whisper it may scream
Well I’m not longer listening

I’m stronger than my fears, than my fears
I’m stronger, I’m stronger than my fears

Written by Sarah Holbrook, Hannah Holbrook, Eva Holbrook and Liza Holbrook
