“The only thing better than singing is more singing!”  – Ella Fitzgerald

Shelley Carlisle has possessed a lifelong passion for singing, composing and performing, relishing the spotlight and grateful for her ability to channel her soul through the gift of song. Her spirit of adventure, versatility, and attention to musical detail enables her to perform a variety of styles, in any venue.

Shelley’s natural talent came to light when she first began charming audiences at the age of 5. It was confirmed when, as an Jr. High school student, she tested off the charts in musical ability and aptitude. Throughout high school and college, Shelley sang with many choral groups, most notably at the University of Miami’s widely recognized School of Music, where she also studied vocals and jazz. From there she came west to California and studied with several well-known vocal producers and coaches:  Lis Lewis of the Singers Workshop in Los Angeles, who’s clients include Rhianna, Britney Spears, Colbie Caillat, Courtney Love; Pilar, a world-renowned inspired singer, songwriter, and coach; and San Francisco Bay Area’s Raz Kennedy, ” the premier vocal coach in the Bay Area.” 

Shelley has performed her favorite styles with seasoned individual musicians, bands, and symphonies – in clubs, private parties and events throughout the Western Untied States.

Although she is on a singing sabbatical, Shelley hopes to get back to her first music love singing Jazz and Standards. She composes original music — meditative, Latin, dance and pop rhythms, in her home studio. 

Shelley is based in Nevada City, California. See Social Media links at bottom of page and you can also listen at
