So many artists today claim to be progressive, but Shelley Nicoleâ€™s blaKbĂĽshe are the living, breathing embodiment. Shelley Nicole is equal parts vocalist, songwriter and bassist making blaKbĂĽshe itâ€™s own mash-up. Imagine Nona Hendryx meets Black Sabbath or Janis Joplin meets Grace Jones and there you will find the blaKbĂĽshe experience. It is a blend best described by Shelley Nicole as SolaRoc; combining elements of rock, funk, soul and beyond.
Shelley Nicole hails from Newton, MA, but now calls Brooklyn, NY home. Since her arrival on the New York music scene she founded Red Butterfly Music the label through which she released her debut album, she who bleedsâ€¦. Her band, blaKbĂĽshe has performed at hot spots all over New York City, the U.S. and Europe including the Manhattan Center Grand Ballroom, B.B. King Blues Club & Grill, The Blue Note, New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC), The Five Spot (Philadelphia) and Endenu (Atlanta), Genghis Cohen (L.A.) and the Mau Mau Bar (London).
blaKbĂĽshe has been called reminiscent of the Soul/Pop recording group Labelle. Even Labelle member Sarah Dash agrees saying, â€śblaKbĂĽshe is not to be overlooked.â€ť Opening for Erykah Badu at the Tea Party in Brooklyn and recording with KRS-One confirms that she is on her destined path.
Before putting her band together, Shelley Nicole released â€śBeing Meâ€ť (1998) on Imani/King Street Records. The song topped charts in London and received critical acclaim in New York, Europe and Japanâ€™s dance music scene. Club DJs still spin â€śBeing Meâ€ť and â€śDance (Flying Home),â€ť which is on her current album she who bleedsâ€¦. Shelleyâ€™s latest single â€śblaK Girlsâ€ť from her forthcoming album is featured in the documentary film U People as well as on the soundtrack. This song is destined to be an anthem for Black women in particular and all women in general around the world.
Author and Associate Professor of Black Popular Culture at Duke University Mark Anthony Neal says, â€śOn she who bleedsâ€¦ Nicole created a vibrant synthesis of Rock and Jazz, which ultimately aimed to tweak the staid sensibilities of both mainstream America and the gatekeepers of African-American culture and identity.â€ť
Get ready to experience a musical revolution. Get ready for blaKbĂĽshe!
