Familiar, yet far-out, Indie folk music
Sisters Eva, Hannah, Sarah and Liza Holbrook were born in a five-year span and raised in a bohemian, art-loving family in Fort Collins, Colo. Each found an instrument to master early on, studying classical music while composing and arranging unique instrumentations for violin, mandolin, piano and drums. They gained performing experience working with their songwriter father and soon had festival promoters and media figures championing their fresh, intricately drawn sound. Shel’s music is many things, but its coherence and distinctiveness comes from the sisters’ commitment to making every song an honest four-way collaboration. Their most recent recording, Just Crazy Enough, features classically inspired mandolin, violin and piano along with the quartet’s glowing vocal harmonies. In a new music scene that’s crowded, genre-twisting and attuned to mastery in live performance, Shel is a must-know young band for anyone who wants to keep up with tomorrow’s greats. Their spellbinding live performances tap deep skills as instrumentalists and total trust to generate improbable power on stage. They share contemporary musical DNA with Americana bands, Punch Brothers and Crooked Still, but just as surely with adventuresome artists, such as tUnE-yArDs, St. Vincent and Alt-J.
