Shelly is a singer, songwriter, vocal coach and more, hailing from the bayous of the Northern Rivers in New South Wales, Australia. She was brought up jamming, fed on it from the womb- singing is her natural state of ease. She loves drinking coffee, then teaching people about singing, about harmony, about the musical release in letting go; fuelled by soul music, jazz improv and a folky calm.
The covid universe has redefined music for our culture, and so, musicians are finding new ways to create and be their prolific selves. Shelly created a songwriting circle, to build community and encourage inspiration; she creates a singing lesson podcast welcoming you to partake in your own personal singing lesson and jamming inspired music theory. Shelly loves to serenade at weddings, teach vocal groups, and was sinking her head and heart into teaching choirs as covid hit.
There are a few more projects in the pipeline; stay tuned for a musical adventure into the lives of outback pilots and light aircraft in Australia and a new Recording Studio adventure in late 2020.
She’s followed Radio Venice for a few years and is delighted to be part of projects produced by strong women. The transgression in local gigs to solo male performers and receding budgets is indeed a massive hit to the international musical community, and to represent as a strong female musician and singer alongside an incredible female producer is a duty and a cause worth raising ones voice for.
Shelly will deliver stories and song, in her heartfelt tone on Radio Venice’s 5th Birthday. Happy Birthday and Congratulations- RV Lady and Gents, have been showing us what we needed all along- worldwide jamboree. New Album – “Focus” by Shelly Brown available on Bandcamp direct to artist or via streaming platforms.

Seymonster is a guitar player, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He has been known to play swampy blues, psychedelic rock & roll, alt country, electro funk, and he loves more styles of music than you could poke a stick at.
Lately he has been making Lo-fi beats and writing lyrics as an ironic and slightly bemused response to the world around us.
He uses an old cassette 4-track to write and record a unique blend of styles, and he has been working on his debut album for about 5 years now. Hopefully one day soon he will finish it so we can have a glimpse inside the mind of this unusual monster from the deep…
