With her “Mercurial voice and eclectic sound” (The Brag) spirited singer-songwriter Shelley Segal creates a space for her listeners. A space for people to engage with ideas, to question and to reflect on the everyday – to see its layers, its depth, its meaning.
Desirous of all expressions, Shelley flirts with elements of jazz, folk, pop, blues, reggae and electronica, imparting a pure joy about music and its power. The spirited singer has been “creating a ripple effect with her melodic vocals, heartfelt passion, thought-provoking lyrics” (Leona Devaz, Weekend Notes)
Shelley’s first single, folk protest song ‘Saved’ has become an anthem for grass-roots secular activists and is the opening music for Austin TV show The Atheist Experience
Collaborating with Adam Levy – guitarist for Norah Jones & Tracy Chapman – Shelley co-wrote and recorded ‘Little March’.
Shelley co-wrote and featured on ‘Chemistry’ – an award winning Drum & Bass track with Carl Cox.
2014’s single, the reggae-inspired ‘Morocco’ from ‘An Easy Escape’ made a splash with coverage in the Australian National Press and the Moroccan World News and is played often on Moroccan television
“Truly an artist with international flair” (AU review) her powerful voice has taken her around Australia, Hong Kong, China, England and eight tours of the United States. She has performed to festival crowds of over 30,000 people.
An artist, an activist and an explicit storyteller, Shelley uses her music not only to express the way she sees the world, but to create the world that she wants to see.
