Hailing from Akron, Ohio, Shelby's sound has made waves in the world of indie pop.
Influenced by the sounds of Julia Michaels, Sara Bareilles, and Lauv, Shelby has combined her love of storytelling with catchy earworm melodies. With songs about jealousy, inadequacy, and the ups and downs of love-- her music reflects her personality in an honest and open way. After damage to her vocal cords in early 2015 that would later require surgery and three months of complete silence, she relied heavily on songwriting to get her through it all.
Shelby holds a BA degree from Kent State University in Music Education. She currently teaches K-5 general music in Cuyahoga Falls, OH. Olive was a singer in the Nova Jazz Singers, the top vocal jazz ensemble at Kent State University, from 2013-2017. She was the vocalist of the Kent State University Jazz Orchestra from 2015-2017.
