Shelly Wade

Shelly WadeShelly Wade originally hails from Big Stone Gap, Virginia. Though she studied opera music professionally in New York City, she ultimately decided to pursue a country/pop music aesthetic. Her influences range from Patsy Cline to Bonnie Raitt to Fiona Apple. She plays guitar and piano as well as performing as a vocalist with the Dime Store Romeos, a country/rock band also based in New York City.  Take a listen to her because how often do you come across an artist talented enough to sing both opera and country?! Now that is truly country meets city.

You can hear her country songs and even a few opera tracks at Here. Or keep up with Shelly on facebook at and her website
