Shellee Coley: Where it Began
No secret I’m a huge music fan, nor that I’m rabid fan of anything that makes Houston great. So could I be a bigger fan of promoting local Houston musicians? Prob not.
It’s been my privilege over the last 2 years to get to know the local record label Magnolia Red. Based in Magnolia, TX, this crew has produced some of the best Houston has to offer through the likes of Mason Lankford and the Folk Family Revival to Caste Lights.
They now are preparing to launch the surely soon to be steller career of Pop-Folk songwriter Shellee Coley.
Over the last 2 weeks they have been featuring exclusive tracks from Shellee’s upcoming album, Where it Began.
The title track, “Where it Began” is a haunting account of Shellee’s resolution of a broken family, and how she came to terms with understanding that instead of 2 broken pieces, the experience made her realize she could be 2 whole pieces with 2 names; something experienced by so many these days.
Shellee has the unique ability to deliver deep, personal lyrics, without alienating the listener. Her calming voice and reassuring tone, guides listeners along her path of discovery and healing.
To hear an audio clip of Shellee’s story behind the song and to stream it, visit her website by clicking here.
Where it Began is available February 28th, and if you’re local to the Houston area, check out Shellee’s two release parties this weekend. More deets here.
Hope you enjoy this songbird as much as I do. See you at the saturday show!
As a bonus, here is a favorite live Shellee performance of mine. Shellee and Mason performing Hallelujah. Enjoy.
