SHELLY RUDOLPH: La Sirene
“Imagine a smoky, sonic concoction with equal parts sugar and whiskey, and you’ve gotsomething close to Shelly Rudolph’s voice. Whatever the material, Ms Rudolph has enough bluesy grit and diva class to carry the day.” - All About Jazz
“A soulful vocalist that prefers not to be contained” (Midwest Records) Shelly Rudolph has long been a favored voice around her hometown of Portland, Oregon, and musical travels have taken her to New York, Los Angeles, the West Indies, Japan, Korea, Indonesia and beyond. She has been dubbed a “robust and captivating vocalist” by Jazz Times and the LA Weekly praised her ability to use her “honey-glazed throat to send chills up and down your spine.”
Well-established as an organically-gifted and sultry fine purveyor of jazz, soul, pop, blues, Rudolph shines as a writer on her latest album the ambitious, enchanting and atmospheric The Way We Love (Origin, 2020), featuring GRAMMY winning, ECM Records’ “maverick” cellist David Darling.
