SHEL is Sarah, Hannah, Eva and Liza, four classically trained musicians who happen to be sisters ranging in age from 18-23. From the artist colony of Fort Collins, Colorado, SHEL is sophisticated and youthful, emotional and lighthearted, classic and eccentric.
SHEL’s engaging live show is marked with a prodigy’s creativity and a veteran’s instinct for entertaining. Audiences delight with their unique songwriting style and fresh, new sound.
The Holbrook sisters grew up in a musical household and first appeared on the stage backing their singer-songwriter father, Andrew Holbrook. In 2005, the girls collaborated to form SHEL and now play and write all of their own music. Their new EP, “ When the Dragon Came Down,” was co-produced by SHEL and six-time Grammy award-winner, Brent Maher. The band has attracted the attention of such major media outlets as NPR’s “eTown Live,” and ABC.com; toured nationwide playing fairs and festivals including South by Southwest, International Folk Alliance, Lilith Fair, Four Corners Folk Festival and Cornerstone.
Sarah (Violin, Bass) Immensely gifted as a violinist and vocalist, Sarah also shines with her bass chops. She is the primary designer of SHEL’s original graphics and videography. She is also the undisputed ambassador of fun at every show!
Hannah (Piano, Keyboards) An award-winning young composer and pianist, Hannah sings and helps arrange SHEL’s unique vocal harmonies. She studied piano performance and composition at Colorado State University
Eva (Mandolin, Electric Mandolin, Cello) Lead vocalist and one of the primary writers, Eva plays both acoustic and electric mandolin, and is involved in every phase of arranging and production. Eva records much of the band’s tracks in their home studio.
Liza (Drums, Percussion) Equally proficient on the Djembe and Roland HandSonic drum, Liza’s natural polyrhythmic ability was spotted at an early age. Her creative approach to percussion enables her to create the unique rhythmic patterns that help define SHEL’s music.
