Sarah Holbrook from SHEL
Dynamic change and self-searching was inevitably going to be a big part of SHEL’s story in these early career years. Sisters Eva, Hannah, Sarah and Liza Holbrook are, after all, twenty-something women, born in a five-year span and raised in a bohemian, art-loving family in Fort Collins, CO. Each found an instrument to master early on, studying classical music while composing and arranging unique works for their anomalous instrumentation, violin, mandolin, piano and drums. They gained performing experience working with their songwriter father, and soon had festival promoters and media figures championing their fresh, intricately drawn sound.
The secret to Shannon LaBrie’s artistry is the seemingly effortless blending of impassioned vocals with honest and insightful lyrics.
“Raining Hallelujah” is a timely song of resilience. Jonathan Frahm with For Folk Sake (UK) calls the song “a reminder that kindness and healing is just around the bend”.
Written alongside Grammy award winning songwriter Tia Sillers (“I Hope You Dance, Blue on Black, There’s Your Trouble), “Raining Hallelujah” offers an optimistic long view while searching for a light at the end of the tunnel. When LaBrie sings, “Above every storm, a cloudless sky is waiting for you and me,” a choir of soulful singers echo her ambitious call.
Growing up on a farm in Nebraska, LaBrie attributes her passion for music to her Dad, who died when she was just thirteen. “He taught me my first guitar chords and when he passed away, songwriting became my way of grieving and dealing with the pain.”
On her latest album, Building, LaBrie’s undeniable voice and musicianship have been described as “nothing short of breathtaking” by American Songwriter and NPR added her heroic anthem “Firewalker” to their Top 20 of 2020.
