Shelley Doty
Shelley Doty
"...the complete performer in her use of cranked up emotions in her singing, edgy rock energy and swinging jazz guitar rhythms."

Labeled "a future legend" by one reviewer and a "guitar goddess" by another, Shelley Doty is considered one the best independent performers in the business. Watching her perform is awe-inspiring due to her masterful guitar licks, soulful voice and charismatic stage presence. As a songwriter, she creates articulate songs for today by sprinkling them with respect for the music of her youth (rock, R&B, jazz, funk). Shelley sings with passion and plays with an authentic raw energy that cuts through the air with jubilant imagination and freshness. Her brand new CD "Over The Line" is now out and available via CD Baby.

In addition to fronting her band, the Shelley Doty X-tet, Shelley also often performs solo acoustic. When Shelley plays electric guitar she rips into it like no other woman ever has - she has a swagger and confidence to play lead guitar that is as rare as it is electrifying. But she also has the subtly and tenderness to cause an audience to shiver at the elegance of her voice and insightful lyrics. Don't be fooled though - she can bring the same intensity she's known for when playing electric to an acoustic setting. Shelley was featured in the March 2008 issue of the renowned Guitar Player Magazine.
Jennah Bell
Hailing from the Bay Area in Northern California, Jennah Bell's style incorporates her unique and diverse upbringing. Music became a very serious career choice when she was blessed with the opportunity to attend a wonderful summer program affiliated with the Grammy Foundation.

A competitive audition process placed her as one of 11 singer/songwriters from around the U.S. Her peers, elders, and music business professionals (Paul Williams, Jimmy Jam, INXS, David Foster) embraced her unorthodox writing style, alternative/folk/soul song melodies, and endearing honest vocals. This gave her the courage and motivation she needed to apply to the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. She has had the privilege and honor to sit down with Paul Simon and work on some of her original tunes this past year and became part of a very special music project called Making Music Herstory (http://makingmusicherstory.com/mmh/).

Now at 21, nearing the end of her Berklee experience, she has committed to spreading love through her music one planet at a time.
