Music Video for Mirror by Shelley Thomas Now Available!

Vocalist, oud player, and composer, Shelley Thomas, blends Balkan, Arabic, Hindustani, Classical, Pop-Soul and African music styles in her compositions, creating the emergence of a new genre: World Chamber Pop. With cinematic arrangements and inspired emotive power, she interlaces diverse threads of culture through a rhythmic, poignant examination into the human condition.

“Mirror explores duality and shadow psychology in the quest for integration of the true self, interlacing diverse threads of culture through sounds of oud, qanun, piano, drums, bass, and a string quartet from a ten-piece chamber ensemble. It is my hope that this music may help us discover how to love ourselves, and one another, more deeply.” – Shelley Thomas

Recognized for her attention to vocal detail, ornamentation, expressivity, and pitch precision, her depth of study and sensitivity have allowed her a rare breadth of styles including folk, classical, traditional and improvisational world vocal arts. Her work pushes the boundaries of musical archetypes in a reverent, poetic, and progressive aesthetic.

“I had the pleasure of meeting Shelley at The New Colossus Music Festival and Industry Conference 2020 in New York City. I enjoyed speaking with her so much that I booked her for Balanced Breakfast’s first online music festival last April.” – Stefan Aronsen
