Declaring Steve McQueen as their hero, Shelby derive their name from Carroll Shelby, the great racecar builder of the 1960’s. Drawing on influences as varied as The Who, My Bloody Valentine and the Psychedelic Furs, the band’s luscious sound is timeless. Aesthetically, the band is heavily influenced by contemporary art and photography, including album covers inspired by and reproduced from works by Matt Mullican and William Christenberry.

Blonde Hair Blue Eyes
Hailing from Baltimore, Blonde Hair Blue Eyes infuses their gritty song-writing and whip-smart lyrics with an unflinching “fuck you” edge. A versatile blend of rock influences and perfect pop undertones, the band masterfully combines murky narratives and echoed guitar textures with melodies that will haunt you into your dreams. As lead singer Val Bernsten’s unique voice transitions from assertive growl to breathy chanteuse in a single line, lead guitarist Ed Harris (of Lake Trout) provides perfect counterpoint with his balls-to-the wall power chord slashes and dry, harmonically-tense lines. Add to the mix the muscular and inventive rhythm section of Michael Kuhl and Randall Miller, their fate is sealed as the saviors of rock.
