STAEHELY BROTHERS WITH SHEILA MARSHALL

TICKETS $20 @ THE DOOR

AL

Al Staehely’s roots in the Austin music scene combined with his experience writing and collaborating with artists in Los Angeles (most notably as front man in the psychedelic rock band Spirit) have allowed him to create a sound all his own. Seamlessly blending classic rock, soulful blues with a commanding stage presence, Al is just at home playing intimate solo shows with an acoustic guitar on his knee as he is taking center stage at a rock show. Al’s engaging lyrics and creative melodies have peaked the interest of other artists who have recorded his songs- Keith Moon (The Who), Marty Balin (Jefferson Airplane), Peter Cox (Go West), The Nick Gravenites/John Cipollina Band, as well as performers from his own back yard, most recently Houston R&B vocalist Annika Chambers.

JOHN STAEHELY
John Staehely is Al’s brother and has played in Spirit, Jo Jo Gunne, & with Bob Dylan.

 

SHEILA MARSHALL

When Sheila Marshall decided to pursue a music career, it didn’t take long for the alluring, bluesy-voiced Texan to gallop from Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo performer to top 10 finalist on TV’s “Nashville Star” talent show, singing with Willie Nelson and Rodney Crowell. Her rootsy, Texas-tinged country rock has since won over Lone Star radio listeners — she’s had three singles rank on the Texas Music Chart — and live audiences from Alaska to Kuwait. With
the Feb. 5, 2013, release of her EP, SHEILA MARSHALL, and its first single, “Can’t Let Go,” she’s ready to reach even more fans.

SHEILA MARSHALL, her follow-up to 2009’s WHAT IF I WAS, further showcases this Houstonite’s passionate vocals and accomplished songcraft. Produced by Ken Tondre (Kevin Fowler Band) at the Compound Recording Studio in Austin, it features renowned guitarist David Grissom on “Can’t Let Go,” a sexy, slide-filled rendition of the Randy Weeks song made famous by Lucinda Williams, though Marshall’s groove-filled country-funk version is more likely to conjure visions of Bonnie Bramlett.
“I never even thought about recording the song, though I’ve been playing it forever,” Marshall says. But when Tondre heard her perform it, she recalls, he told her she needed to put it on the sc. “He talked me into it.”
