Joan Shelley’s Electric Ursa - Subtle, Indirect and Captivating


Most descriptions of our guest today Joan Shelley say to give her time to work her magic. We featured her as a World Cafe: Next artist last year and are happy to welcome her to the show today. Her new album Electric Ursa is a subtle beauty that Pitchfork recently gave a 7.9 rating. Joan is from Louisville and has performed and recorded there often with fellow singer-songwriter Daniel Martin Moore.
