Shell Marie Music, Zachary, LA
Shell Marie - Nashville recording artist and up and coming Contemporary Christian singer/songwriter, has just released her debut EP – “New Creation”.
Growing up in Louisiana, Shell Marie is no stranger to the music scene. Beginning at the age of three, you could find her singing at church, festivals, and in music theater. At age 12, she began pursuing a music career in the pop genre, releasing her first album in 2015 and her second album in 2017. Shell received recognition from Music Industry Magazines; was nominated as Female Artist of the Year and Music Video of the Year by Nashville Universe; nominated as Teen Artist of the Year and Music Video of the Year by Music Road Radio; received Pop Artist of the year by LOZ Radio; and received the Accolade Global Film Award of Merit for her song “Broken Sky”.
But, in 2017, she was faced with a crossroad of conflicting values, and after much prayer and discernment, she made the decision to integrate her faith and her music, transitioning from being a Pop artist to a Contemporary Christian artist. For the first time, she felt a peace and certainty that she was doing what she was meant to do.
“This EP is the story of me coming into myself, as a person, an artist, and as a Christian,” Shell says. “It represents my journey, but it's a journey that others can see themselves in too.”
Produced by Grammy® and Dove award-winning Capitol CMG producer and songwriter, Jordan Sapp; award-winning producer, engineer, guitarist, and owner of Yackland Studio, Steven Leiweke; and producer, songwriter, lead singer for Wavorly, and former member of Audio Adrenaline, Dave Stovall.
“I had so much fun working with Shell Marie! She puts everything she has into her music, and it shows. I can't wait for people to hear what we've been working on!” - Jordan Sapp,
“When I first met Shell there was immediate songwriting chemistry. Some artists are difficult to figure out what they want, but she knew exactly what she was going for and felt confident in her opinions. So I would say I was initially impressed. But then I turned the mic on... I was completely blown away. She is a vocal MACHINE! The music we created was genuine and felt very moving. I can't wait for the world to hear Shell Marie and to get to know her heart.” - Dave Stovall.
“Shell Marie is the real deal! She's very concerned about sharing the truth and loving everyone she encounters.” - Stephen Leiweke
Shell Marie's goal is to help the people of her generation to hear about the love of God from someone they can relate to and to introduce people to a true hope that goes above and beyond anything they're facing. And for her, that hope is Jesus.
