    Shelley Washington

    With an eclectic palette that draws elements from jazz, rock, American folk and other contemporary musical spaces, Washington (b. 1991) seeks to tell memorable sonic stories that comment on current and past social narratives, both personal and observed. Her music has been described as "slightly wild, slightly mysterious” while having the ability to "powerfully [tell] stories" (Peter Alexander).
