Raised in Central California, Shelli started belting out songs from the backyard cherry tree at age 3. She has since developed an incredible vocal range and sings in a dizzying array of styles and genres, from sultry jazz, to powerhouse vocals for rock, pop, country and dance music. Classically trained as a teen, Shelli has performed extensively over the years both onstage and in the recording studio. She has appeared with various bands for casinos, corporate shows, private parties, and nightclubs. As a well seasoned and versatile performer, she also has her own locally-based contemporary & classic rock band called Firefly (check out www.Fireflytheband.com)
Shelli recorded a 6-song demo produced by Max T. Barnes at Curb Studio in Nashville several years back. More recently, she has been working on formulating a ground-breaking independent recording project that reflects her passion for the healing power of music, and supports her deep desire to make a positive difference in the world through her music and charitable interests.
"Shelli Frances' vocals explode with power and remarkable versatility. She's an extraordinary talent and one of the finest I've had the pleasure of working with."
~ Alicia Champion / Executive Producer, San Diego IndieFest
It is always something special when you find a fantastic musician who is a master of their craft. However, it is something extraordinary to find one who is also gracious, beautiful, radiant and humble, all the while exuding the brilliance of a constellation on stage. Shelli Frances is all of this and more. She is, simply put, remarkable.
