“Where The Owl Was”
Album Available from Vitamin Records
Subtle, but powerful like the tides. Shelly Brown is a force of nature.
Be sure to experience her overwhelm, at least once in your life.
Shelly Brown is a Singer, Songwriter, Vocal Coach and much, much more.
Born in the bayou of Ballina in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, she was brought up singing music around the dinner table with her family. Music was about participation, passion and personal expression. Immersed in a family business of manufacturing Light Sport Aircraft, in which her job profile extended from weighing every single piece of the light aircraft to making the websites, to hanging out of helicopters to create the promo material to inserting her arms into wings to fix push rods, she gained a diverse range of skills to assess, create, get involved and be interested in entire processes in things.
Thusly, she headed off to university to study music. Created some fearful albums, some fearless albums, learnt a little, taught a lot, travelled, toured and wrote. For now, the To Do list is long and diverse, so be sure to stay tuned for the next album popping out in 2017. Writing and recording project with Producer Dirk Terrill will be taking shape to perform in 2017/2018; and whilst Mrs Miyagi is about to have a baby, music will also erupt from her like pancakes on a Sunday morning… slowly, and filled with sunshine and honey.
Shelly has one of those incredibly rare voices that reaches deep into your soul and controls you at will. Utterly captivating, dangerously powerful and honest as it comes. The best I’ve ever known.

Shelly is the queen, no, the empress of R&B. What a voice to die for! What a groove! What a kick!
