Honest, soulful, empowering, beautiful…all words to describe singer/songwriter Shelly Bhushan. Whether she’s singing about a growing house plant, a dying computer, or the City of NY, she expresses herself so honestly, so completely, that it often moves people to tears.
Gifted with an incredibly powerful voice, Shelly draws on a depth of emotion that ranges from desire to defiance, longing to exhilaration. It’s as if her soul reaches out to yours when you hear her sing–real, without a trace of pretentiousness.
Shelly’s latest album “Something Out of Nothing” is roller coaster ride of emotions thoughtfully woven together like a tapestry. It’s a bittersweet story of living and striving in the most marvelous city in the world: NYC.
Fans have likened Shelly and her band to Donny Hathaway, Bonnie Raitt, Alicia Keys, Hall and Oats, Aretha, Adele, a soulful White Stripes.
It’s hard to pin down, but the inability to classify her is the very thing that makes Shelly’s music so interesting.
