SHEL Welcomed to the Madison House Family

The internationally acclaimed sisters of SHEL have been heralded “A must-know young band for anyone wanting to keep up with tomorrow’s greats…”

(No Depression) Their spellbinding live performances tap deep skills as instrumentalists and total trust to generate impressive power on stage.  Together, SHEL creates a completely unique sound highlighting the diverse talents of all four sisters.  Most recently on tour with Amos Lee, SHEL captivates audiences with their infectious rhythms and hypnotic vocals.  SHEL has recently been added to the Madison House booking roster. Look for them on tour!

SHEL is an acronym for their names with Sarah on violin and guitar, Hannah on keys, accordion and synth bass, Eva on mandolin and lead vocals, and Liza on drums, djembe, and beatboxing.  

Raised in Colorado, the band had an unconventional upbringing on an abandoned trailer park that the family cleared and turned into a farm. This unique background encouraged a broad range of creative ventures that allowed the four sisters to make an independent living on the road starting in their early teens.  While touring across the US & Europe, the band directs, films and edits their own music videos, which have received rave reviews and premiered in USA Today, Huffington Post, Nerdist and more.  

SHEL’s songs can be heard in numerous films, TV shows and commercials, including The Best Of Me, The Fosters, Search Party, The Fourth Phase, Toys ‘R Us and the inspiring trailer for Women In Sports.
