SHEL performs at the University Center for the Arts

January 24, 2013

SHEL's vocals, along with their mastery of the violin, bass, piano, mandolin, cello, drums, and percussion, have been called sophisticated and lighthearted.

In 2005, Sarah, Hannah, Eva, and Liza collaborated to form SHEL and now play and write all of their own music.Thursday, February 7
8-9 p.m.

University Center for the Arts

In collaboration with the Bohemian Foundation, Colorado State University will present a series of concerts by contemporary musical artists at the University Center for the Arts. The series will feature local bands. 

The artists and groups in this inaugural season of the new series share the common thread of local flair, featuring CSU alumni in each concert.

The February 7 concert performers are SHEL, Sarah, Hannah, Eva and Liza Holbrook, four classically trained musicians who happen to be sisters.

Colorado State alumna

Hannah (Piano, Keyboards) is an award-winning young composer and pianist. She sings and helps arrange SHEL’s unique vocal harmonies. She studied piano performance and composition at Colorado State University.


The Fort Collins [SHEL] sisters create truly spellbinding music. With influences from Imogen heap to Led Zeppelin, “SHEL…glides effortlessly atop the lilting, sublime voices of…Sarah, Hannah (CSU alumna), Eva and Liza.

These gals are exceptional musicians as well, with each member playing an array of instruments including violin, electric bass, piano, mandolin to drums…their EP, Try To Scream, [has been listed] as ‘one of the most impressive debuts of the year.’ Couldn’t agree more.”

Four sisters who make up the folk-pop group SHEL are breaking the “girl band” mold. They look different. They sound different. And they’re seen in a different light…
