Dubois

Vancouver Island
,
“It starts with a song. The songs that can take your breath away or leave you with a tear in your eye. Add this to a beautiful, clear, natural voice as strong as anybody coming out of Nashville these days” (Robert McCourty, Artistic Director,Island Folk Festival). Couple this with exceptional stage skills as an entertainer and you have Shelly Dubois.  An independent country music artist – singer/songwriter born and raised in Peace River, Alberta but now makes her home on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Shelly’s music is being played on community/university radio and internet radio stations in Canada, US and Europe. Through web promotion, Shelly has built a strong and growing fan base through Reverbnation, MySpace, and Facebook, and continues to be in the top 5 on the country charts on Reverbnation for Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island, British Columbia as well as being in the Top 20 on the National charts. Shelly has a video for the title track of her CD “I’m Not Lookin’ Back” which can be viewed online on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5mUBdSDIAQ .   Shelly and her band perform at a variety of venues and she even puts on concerts to help raise money for her charity, the "Chantal Dubois Memorial Fund", to help families financially that have a child battling cancer.  She also works with the BC Childhood Cancer Parents Association (BCCCPA) in this regard.  Shelly also donates $3.00 from the sale of each CD to her charity. Shelly continues to write songs and has been honing her writing skills by working with her mentor, Larry Wayne Clark (award-winning songwriter and wrote hits for Lee Greenwood and the Statler Brothers).  She has also been collaborating with other songwriters and feels she has the right material to record on her next CD.  Her plan is to record in Nashville with award-winning Canadian producer Bart McKay (Gord Bamford, Shane Yellowbird, Six West, Hey Romeo) this year. In May, 2008, Shelly self-released her debut CD “I’m Not Lookin’ Back”.  Having written all ten tracks, complimented by her true country voice, Shelly is able to convey personal stories that her fans can relate to. From a true country/classic sound to the country/rock sound heard today, Shelly appeals to listeners of all ages. “It’s all about music and making a connection with my fans. If I accomplish that, I'll have done what I have set out to do as an artist”. Shortly after the release of her CD, Shelly's twenty year old daughter lost her two year battle to brain cancer.  Suffering such a loss, Shelly's grief took her away from everything for a few years.  With the encouragement of family and friends, Shelly returned to the music world and she and her band are now gigging, performing songs from her debut CD, new originals, as well as covers from some of her favorite country artists. Whether it is in an intimate coffee shop setting or a pub, club, festival, open air concert or a dance, Shelly is confident that her show will be sure to impress.
