Shelly 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.
Take a look at Shelly’s recent shoot, with clothing provided and styled by Buffalo Exchange Chelsea.
