We are excited to welcome Shelley King, Official Texas State Musician, back to Arhaven House Concerts.  She has built a solid national career as a singer and songwriter who is both a successful solo artist and leader of a formidable band of Austin’s finest musicians.  Her soul-filled, earthy Americana sound is rooted in southern gospel and blues, dampened by the Gulf-borne humidity of Louisiana, nourished by the river loam of Muscle Shoals, then cleansed by the hot springs of her native Arkansas, with a little Texas country bubbling underneath. Shelley performs over 180 dates a year at venues from coffee shops and house concerts to big theaters and major festivals across the world. She has won Austin Music Awards for Song of the Year and Best Roots Rock Band and released seven albums of original music to rave reviews and radio chart success.  Her songs have appeared in feature films and have been recorded by numerous artists, including Karen Mal, Toni Price, and  Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra.
