December 2016 - Shelby Martin releases The Self-Proclaimed Law

Shelby Martin has release his latest single on Empeda Records.

The Self-Proclaimed Law is adapted from a poem written by Martin Probert Davies, 'Another War, Another Line' (2015), after the UK Parliament voted to start airstrikes in Syria. In his own words, 'it just goes on and on'.

The track is available from iTunes, Amazon and CDBaby, as well as Spotify, YouTube and all other major online stores from the 19th December 2016.




September 2016 - Shelby's Elbows at Jurassic Fields 2016

November 2015 - Shelby's Elbows release Let It Be for Christmas 2015

The Shelby's Elbows Christmas offering is to be released on the 23rd November. It is a cover of the famous Beatles song 'Let It Be', accompanied by a moving and nostalgic video starring none other than Shelby's Elbows - the next generation!

Lead vocalist Martin Davies explains 'we wanted to do something a little different this year after releasing a couple of versions of our own Christmas song. Let It Be is a song we play periodically at live shows, and is a cover I think we do quite well. With everything that's going on in the world at the moment the song, with its timeless message, is also quite apt too. Plus, it's cheesy enough for Christmas!'.

The track is available from iTunes, Amazon and CDBaby, as well as Spotify, YouTube and all other major online stores from the 23rd November 2015.

Phil Jeffs, one half of Shelby's Elbows told the local Bridport News 'From our point of view it was the best gig of the year, and the production team JSW Productions were incredibly professional. We'd like to thank everyone for such a good event. My best memory was seeing the crowd stream around the corner as we started to play; it was magical'.

The news added that Shelby's Elbows 'drew great applause for their performance', with others highlighting them, along with The Leggomen, Mr. B. the Gentleman Rhymer and 90s Brit Pop legends Dodgy as the stand out acts of the day.
