Updates: Shelley Short, Laura Gibson

2011 11 21 13:49

Shelley Short has just released a new album, Then Came The After,  and it’s a stunner.

For now, get it exclusively from Flippin Yeah Industries.  Shelley is on tour in Australia NOW!  Tour dates below.

Meanwhile Laura Gibson is ramping up to release her third studio recording La Grande on Barsuk Records January 24th.

HUSH is so proud to see these women grow onward and outward with their music!

Here is a note from Laura:

I have been gearing up to present the new record in January. I’ve been waiting so long to share these songs and it’s finally feeling like a reality. Now, as most people are drawing indoors and into themselves, I have been looking outwards, and dreaming up the first run of shows for the new record (including an extra special record release party in Portland on February 3). I’ve included tour dates below (more to come). I am thrilled to be sharing many of these shows with one of my favorite bands, Breathe Owl Breathe. If you don’t already know BOB’s music, you’re going to fall in love.

I will be playing these shows as a 4-5 piece band (including percussion, flute clarinet, bass, piano, lap-steel, and 3-part harmonies).

The first song, and title track from the new record, is up at Paste!

“A Cave, A Canoo” Top 10 of ’09, PDX show

2009 12 11 08:45


Shelley Shorts’ “A Cave, A Canoo” was recently selected by Popmatters as one of the top 10 releases of 2009:

As with labelmates Laura Gibson and Peter Broderick, to relegate Shelley Short to the category of folk music or singer-songwriter would be to ignore the imagination in her music. She approaches quiet music with the vocal style of a pop crooner and the perspective of a daydreaming child, seeing the world around as a place of mystery. A Cave, a Canoo beautifully captures that point of view, in moody songs riddled with strange angles and tones. Aglow with campfire and fireflies, lost in thoughts of death and birth, the album has a timeless quality that’s breathtaking, sounding new and old at once. The sound of the human voice, alone, is on display, within a fanciful but visceral setting that straddles lines between the adult and child worlds, animal and human worlds, the physical and the metaphysical. – Dave Heaton

Catch Shelley Friday, December 18th, at The Woods (6637 Milwaukie Avenue)

with Brittian Ashford ( NY, NY) and Kaylee Cole (Spokane).

Shelley will be joined by Julianna Bright on Drums and Alexis Gideon on guitar.

Shelley Short, Paste’s Artist Of The Day

“We grew up in an old Victorian house with wood heat,” she recounts in her feather-light voice. “It got really cold in certain rooms. So I had a wood stove in my room, and there was a fireplace in the living room and another wood stove in the dining room.” Short’s family chopped their own wood and grew their own food, and the influence of these earthy, provincial early years is tangible in her music, songs that sound not unlike those a quiet, contemplative child might sing while splitting tender for the family.

Short revisited the bleak Portland winter to record her new album, A Cave, A Canoo.
