Based out of Louisville, Kentucky, singer/songwriter Joan Shelley's warm and mellifluous voice evokes both the deep south and west coast, drawing from both old-time country and '60s folk. Shelley released her solo debut Ginko in 2012, followed by the No Quarter-issued Electric Ursa in 2014 and the new Over and Even this September, a collaboration with guitarist Nathan Salsburg (Paradise of Bachelors, No Quarter). She splits her time between solo outings and as one-third of the old time trio Maiden Radio.
