“Shelby Rae Moore is a phenomenon! At barely twenty years of age, she has been wowing audiences for years with her voice, style, poise, stage presence and repertoire. Having grown up in a musical family, she began singing at a very early age and has evolved into a seasoned professional. She has the uncommon ability to move effortlessly between genres including blues, rock, country, bluegrass and pop. Her influences range from Jerry Reed to Bonnie Raitt to Etta James to Adele. As a testament to her versatility, Shelby plays with two different backing bands – as a three-piece acoustic unit accompanied by her two uncles, Chet & Brent Palmer and as a full electric band that includes Tyler Haas on bass and Kurt Stracener on drums. When Shelby begins to sing, there is an undeniable connection between her and the song and with every performance, she brings the listeners along for the journey.” ~Shelley Malin
