the band Walenia / Press

“The Lebanon-based country band Walenia has only been in business for about a year, but it’s already tearing up the local music scene and is looking to move up to the next level. Walenia took its first step toward inception a few years ago when Shelley Moses was dating Corey Moses, who is now her husband, and the two of them began performing together as a duo. Shelley Moses explained, “He played guitar, and one day he played guitar and I sang, and he thought it would be a good idea if maybe we did it for fun and maybe at shows and venues, and we kind of started out as a duet.” Outside of singing in church as she was growing up, Shelley Moses said, she had no singing experience. The next addition to the ensemble was steel guitarist Terry Wood. Wood was a teacher in Marshfield but had worked with Corey Moses’ father on a country music show years before.”
