Ben Gibbard called hers “the most heartbreakingly beautiful voice in Seattle” and NPR critic Ann Powers proclaimed her “my new favorite songwriter.” Shelby Earl makes music that is gritty and soulful, raucous and beautiful — not to mention stellar enough to draw praise from such discerning sources (as well as Rolling Stone, Paste, KEXP, and American Songwriter). Powers notes that Earl “writes for those of us who’ve been through a few things,” catching the full weight and awareness lurking just behind her clear and lovely voice.
