He started his career with cover bands in New Zealand and was always being asked to sing Elvis songs as people said he sounded like Elvis.

Shelley celebrated the release of her debut album ROCKABILITY with a launch at the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly weekend in Las Vegas and she has followed up with performances at the Gympie Music Muster, Shepparton Shakeout and Cruisin’ Country. Shelley and Lawrie have recently played shows in New Delhi and Mumbai in India and she also recently performed 5 shows at the Gold Coast this June for the Cooly Rocks On festival. Her first single Rockability was a number 2 hit on Tamworth’s 88.9 Chart, took 3rd position on Australian Country Radio and made 4th spot on Australian Country Tracks. ROCKABILITY was produced by Shelley’s multi award winning husband and features the talents of some of the top session musicians in Australia including Scott Hills, James Gillard and Hugh Curtis.
