It’s amazing how far Daytrotter has come in the last year, in terms of readership. This is now the fifth HUSH artist to be showcased on the breath-of-fresh-air rival to the Pitchfork-Stereogum industrial complex. Head on over, read a spell, and take it all in.

Shelley Short is on deck for a quick national tour (dates in sidebar on right.). As a preview we have these nicely recorded performances from an appearance at Chicago’s Hideout just a couple months ago. Make sure to catch when she’s in your neck of the woods.

Yes it is the day after Earth Day, but I suppose we’re being fashionably late with a few announcements regarding the lovely Shelley Short.

  • Water For The Day is out now. Available at finer retailers and via iTunes and others.
  • We just posted the FREE enhanced HUSHcast of Shelley Short's Water For The Day available also via iTunes.
  • Water For The Day is the first of several releases to sport our new HUSH 100% recycled content packaging. It's an eco, handsome and nice-to-touch packaging alternative. Consider a purchase at the HUSHshop.
  • Shelley shared a few words about her latest album with The indefatigable Large Hearted Boy blog for their Note Books series.
  • Lastly, here's what the locals have to say about it:
  • "Shelley Short The sweet-voiced Short knows how to bring power to her vocals, with a broad emotional range that makes her folk songs sometimes fierce, sometimes gentle, sometimes both. " - The Oregonian

    "Sounding like the gorgeous-voiced kid sister of Neko Case, Shelley Short treats folk music with a mere fleeting interest, liberally picking and choosing from the storied genre with great care on her third full-length, Water for the Day." - Portland Mercury

    "She’s able to come across cute and wise all at once, which is no easy feat. On “How Grand,” she employs coos that might seem campy or twee in another songwriter’s hands, but Short comes across more like a gentle owl offering tidbits of worldly insight from high atop a gnarled, windswept tree." - Willamette Week

    We’re pleased to announce that Shelley’s third album Water For The Day is now available for early order in the HUSHshop. Shelley will be playing a not-to-miss CD Release show at The Someday Lounge in Portland this Sunday April 13th before a short west coast tour to begin later in the month.

    Thanks to Laurent Orseau, who since 2001 have fostered creativity with rare kindness and warmth with their nonprofit association Hinah, a true gift to humanity from which songs, images, and writings spring eternal. Shelley Short recently stopped in and annointed their new flat with a few songs:

    We are overjoyed to officially announce Shelley Short’s third proper album, Water For The Day, to be released on April 22nd. Shelley will be touring with the inimitable Tom Brosseau beginning April 13. (Scroll down on the sidebar for dates.) We will be making the CD available for order at the end of March. In case you missed it, we quietly added the track “Swimming” on our media page as a scintillating preview. Those familiar with the lauded Captain Wildhorse will likely find this a bit more intimate affair. Compellingly so. Despite the absence of a pervasive backing band, there are more moments of ear-perking surprises. The bookmark-worthy Songs Illinois put it this way:

    “She has a wonderful voice and very good ear for creating both the lyrics and the music to compliment it. But she’s not content to create something that is easily digestible. On the surface her music is very listenable but just under the surface there are subversions and distractions that lend it an air of mystery or an ethereal quality.”

    Meanwhile Shelley is spending her Spring in Paris. She’ll be stopping in on Hinah world headquarters, I’m told, to play an intimate session to be shared with the world as part of the free Hinah Gift Series which Norfolk & Western and Laura Gibson lended highly recommended performances to over the past few years.
