Shelby, Texas is a country/southern rock band based out of the San Francisco bay area. The duo was started by singer/songwriters Shelby Lanterman and MichaelRyan “Texas” McCauley after the two met at a songwriters competition and immediately hit it off. Being impressed by his songwriting and guitar skill, Shelby invited Tex to join her on tour as her guitarist. Audiences were so enthralled by their chemistry on stage, they decided to come together and join forces. Often compared to Johnny Cash & June Carter, they are striving to put the country back in country music. He’s a little bit country, she’s a little bit rock n’ roll. Together, they’ve created something truly awesome.
Price Range: $100-$5,000
Gig Length: 40 - 180 minutes
What to Expect
Singer/songwriter that plays both original and cover music in the style of classic rock, 90's rock and country.
Reliability, clear communication, consistency and a fun, high energy performance are just a few ways to describe the experience of hiring Shelby for your event.
Shelby Lanterman is a singer-songwriter from Napa, CA. Practically from the day she was born, her father exposed her to all forms of rock & roll and other types of popular music, and she was quickly inspired to sing and play music herself.
At the age of 12 she picked up the guitar and signed up for the Garage Band 101 program at Napa School of Music, which helped her segue into playing her own shows.
After honing her skills throughout her youth, then 16 year old Shelby began to write and perform her own music. Her performance credits include Hollywood’s Roxy Theater, the Bottle Rock Festival, Sweetwater Music Hall, the Uptown Theater, Silo’s and many more. Most recently, she gained notoriety for her acclaimed Emerging Artist Series of shows hosted at City Winery, featuring several up and coming Bay Area musicians she personally selected. In addition, Shelby has had the opportunity to open for Bob Mould, Lisa Loeb, among many others.
In the fall of 2014, Shelby attended Dark Horse Institute in the Nashville area. Shelby earned a degree in audio engineering, while also immersing herself in the music first atmosphere that is unique to Nashville. Here she was able to work with musicians from all over the country and develop her repertoire as a producer. This experience shaped her unique sound that encompasses the classic rock she grew up loving, and the "Nashville Sound" she was exposed to during her time studying at Dark Horse.
Inspired by artists ranging from Johnny Cash to Nirvana, Shelby’s songwriting style blends the angst and energy of 90’s alt-rock/grunge with the sensibility of Americana and roots rock.
With a wealth of her own material and a group of carefully selected covers, Shelby’s high energy performances will remind you why you fell in love with rock & roll in the first place.
