Shelby Darrall Interview By Amber Otto for Country Music News International Magazine

 

A new face and voice within the country scene that one should surely add to their playlist is California-native Shelby Darrall. Her strong vocals that punch out the lyrical content of her music with conviction, sprinkled with an edgy tone reminiscent to that of Miley Cyrus, is enough to make any listener “melt” once hearing her deliver an unforgettable serenade. Not only was her second EP “Melt” just released on September 22nd 2023, but the Napa Valley singer also got the opportunity to debut her latest music at the Ryman Auditorium the same day when opening for Larry Fleet. Her latest EP consists of six tracks total including “Melt” and another “must listen to,” “Little Man” which according to Darrall is a powerful song she hopes will remind listeners to take charge of your life. “I honestly wrote little man because I wanted my chance to fight back against being treated like I was insignificant. The song, for me, is about a specific man that made me feel two feet tall simply because he had “more” than me, more clout, more money, more status, more support.” Other tracks on the EP include, “Hope He Hears This,” “Three Words,” “Dancer,” and “Three Words (Sunset Demo).”
