Shelly Short and Alexis Gideon

Eighth Street Tap Room

For her third album, Portland songwriter Shelley Short (Hush Records) assembled a collection of intimate and evocative folk-pop songs. Prior to making the record, Shelley jettisoned her Chicago existence and took up residence in Los Angeles with her new love and collaborator Alexis Gideon. Short's soft delivery lends her often dark and personal songs depth and caprice, much like that of her early influences like Roger Miller, Bob Dylan, Jimmie Rodgers, or Joni Mitchell.
