Format: Audio CD
This is the first full length album by the Colorado born band Shel. The band comprises four sisters; Sarah, Hannah, Eva and Liza, whose first name initials make up the band's name. Shel play with four main instruments; violin, piano, mandolin and drums and together they create unique, beautiful melodies mixed with wonderful lyrics.

This self-titled album contains 13 tracks and they get better and better. I first heard Paint My Life (Track 1) before buying the album or even knowing who the band were, and I had the track on repeat for quite a while. Internet searches brought me to live versions of 'When the Dragon Came Down' (Track 12) and 'The Battle of Evermore' (Track 8) which is a superb cover of the song by Led Zeppelin.

The album incorporates instrumental tracks like 'Tuscany' which is a very powerful and strong piece, which shows that Shel are a serious and promising band. Other tracks like 'Freckles' are more relaxed yet jolly and upbeat and it's easy to hit repeat and spend plenty of time immersed in that one song.

Their instrument choice is what makes them so interesting; the violin adds a Celtic feel to tracks like 'Lost at Sea'. You can't fault any of the band members, they play so well and it's easy to simply get taken away with the music and at times forget about the lyrics.

It's difficult to pick one song to call a 'favourite' or 'the one that sums the album up' because all the tracks are brilliant. It's those that I have mentioned in this review that really stand out.

I was trying to think of someone to compare them to, but their uniqueness makes that difficult. They do remind me somewhat of Katzenjammer who are an all girl band from Oslo. Their music is faster and with a somewhat more aggressive approach at times.

Really glad I bought this. You can listen to all the tracks on YouTube, but I like having the CD.

After coming across their videos, I browsed their twitter posts, and one of Sarah (violin player) blogs reminded me that CD sales are an important revenue stream to professional musicians. Not all musicians are millionaire libertines. :-)

original, talented, intelligent 7 Aug. 2012
By Keith L. Jenkins - Published on Amazon.com
It is hard to put a label on their music but it is immensely listenable without being overly familiar or simple. I grew up on the late 60's music and somehow they sound familiar. I have heard it said they have "old souls" and it almost seems so. At the same time they will be familiar to those who like Adele, Corrine Baily or Sara Bareilles. The difference is the breadth of their material. Equally impressive is that these girls also play their own instruments and write their songs. I hope they are able to cross over because they deserve to be heard by large audience. They do a great concert if you ever get the chance don't miss them.
update alert!
I have just finished listening to this CD for the 3rd time and feel compelled to issue a warning; addictive! plus enticing, groundbreaking, stunning, I have not even listened to the lyrics I am too busy being carried away by the melody and music. Some albums you buy and listen a few times but are not compelled to listen again and again. I will be listening their music for a long time.

Shel rocks 24 Dec. 2012
By Kidgloves2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
These girls are so talented. The songwriting is great. The vocal harmonies are lush. They play their instruments like seasoned pros, especially the mandolin player. I look foward to a long career from the young ladies.

Give them your support if you believe in home grown music.

Excellent new young group! 4 Sept. 2012
By Mr. Audio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have also seen these "sisters" several times live. First was at Lilith Fair in Denver and I had, at that time, never heard of them. Well that sure changed. They stole the show and were amazing. I've seen them a few times since and they contiue to grow as songwriters and musicians, although they are already very talented in the musician sense.

I thought to myself, after the first time I heard them, if they're not the next big thing, (or at least make it big), there has to be a problem.

My highest recommendation!!!
