Shelley Minson May 2018
Tamworth based singer Shelley Minson sings her own style of Rockabilly and together with her guitar playing husband Lawrie they’ve made quite an impact in Australia and internationally. Shelley celebrated the release of her debut album ROCKABILITY with a launch at the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly weekend in Las Vegas and she has followed up with performances at the Gympie Music Muster, Shepparton Shakeout and Cruisin’ Country. Shelley and Lawrie have recently played shows in New Delhi and Mumbai in India. Shelley is also excited to be returning to the Gold Coast this June for the Cooly Rocks On festival.
Her first single ROCKABILITY was a number 2 hit on Tamworth’s 88.9 Chart, took 3rd position on Australian Country Radio and made 4th spot on Australian Country Tracks.
ROCKABILITY was produced by Shelley’s multi award winning husband and features the talents of some of the top session musicians in Australia including Scott Hills, James Gillard and Hugh Curtis. Australian Music legend Ross Wilson has been a big supporter and lent his songwriting talents to the song Rockabilly Man.
Her music and look is inspired by the great Rockabilly artists from the fifties and her shows are upbeat with songs made for dancing.
