Shelbie Neal is an American singer-songwriter from the Pacific Northwest. When asked at a young age, Shelbie knew she wanted to make her name in music. Growing up in Seattle surrounded by musicians with their own style, Shelbie understood the art of self expression through meaningful songs, showcasing confidence yet vulnerability. Her raw voice and honest lyrics invoke names such as Regina Spektor, Amiee Mann, and Ingrid Michaelson. The cathartic nature of Shelbie's music paints an authentic picture of an internal struggle, one sometimes all too relatable. Shelbie Neal has written over sixty songs, grounded on the idea of relationships, friendships, and how we are all intertwined with one another. In 2016 she released her first acoustic album titled "Molecular", and in 2017 released two singles titled "Songs That Got Me Through" produced by Canadian singer songwriter Mike Edel. In October of 2017 Shelbie released a new single featuring violinist Andrew Joslyn.
Sandi Fernandez is a singer songwriter currently based in Seattle, WA. Her powerful raw voice and catchy melodies deliver toe tapping grooves to her audiences. Influenced by folk music of the 60s, 90s alternative music, and modern indie music; her style is reminiscent of artists such as The Decemberists, The Lumineers, and Neutral Milk Hotel.
She draws upon the deep connection with her family to write music that reflects the love and challenges that come from these formative relationships. Her music explores the pain of loss, the beauty of love, and the importance of home. She wraps it all up into a melody driven belting style of Americana music.
