25 Jul Shelley Rae
Shelley Rae Korntved sang as she learned to speak, stomped her foot at five and delcared, she was going to play guitar. Four years later she got her wish in the form of a used Stella Harmony. Her Dad told her “Singers are a dime a dozen, you need to write your own, kid”. So, at ten years old, she did. Her wide range of influences and muses included, Bob Marley, Heart, Simon & Garfunkel, Stevie Nicks and Ani DiFranco to name a few. Shelley’s songs map out the journey of her life. Family, the environment, anti-love songs, true love songs and her deep discontent with the state of affairs in our world. She is fearless performer and will belt out tunes accompanied by percussive rhythm guitar. At 51 she still dreams of saving the planet “one song at a time”. Realistically, Shel hopes her words will inspire conversation to bring people together.
