Shelly Rudolph is a maker of soul music in the broadest, genre-inclusive definition, a fine and sultry singer and songwriter with a sense of adventure and a desire for discovering and conveying emotional truth. As a “robust and captivating vocalist” (Jazz Times), she has dazzled audience around the globe, including New York, Los Angeles, Japan, Korea, the West Indies and Portland, which she now calls home. Shelly’s most recent album, Water in My Hand, has garnered praise from regional and national publications: “Water in My Hands is a stunning album, intoxicating and stimulating, a mature work from an old soul artist”(Montecito Journal).
Guitarist, composer, arranger and producer Chance Hayden has maintained an active presence as a stalwart player throughout Portland, Oregon’s diverse musical communities since 2005. His talent has extended from local luminaries including Darrell Grant, Devin Phillips and Farnell Newton to national artists such as Lindsey Webster, Maimouna Youssef, Matt Brown and Mycle Wastman. Hayden garnered international exposure touring alongside Jarrod Lawson with highlights including Holland’s North Sea Jazz Festival, Japan’s Billboard Live and the incredibly unique opportunity of a birthday celebration for Stevie Wonder. To be released in May 2018 is Hayden’s sophomore album, Get Somethin’, showcasing his guitar work and arranging chops in the jazz-funk idiom.
