Acclaimed Bay Area singer, Shelley MacKay, is known for her smooth, honey-like voice -- described as “liquid gold” and her approach to music that brings vitality and connection.
After several years of performing with her jazz trio, and more recently with The Reflex 80‘s Band and several other local tribute bands, including: Top Secret, Night Train, Barely Manilow, and Critical Bliss, she is now in production on her first original EP.

In addition, Shelley currently writes an article for San Francisco Bay Times in the A&E section, which features local artists. And, in the fall of 2012 she was the featured artist on “Live n Funky’s Podcast”, with a full-length interview.
