Shelly Dubois

Bio


Shelly Dubois is an independent country recording artist, singer/songwriter based out of Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta but her roots are in her home town of Peace River.    

 Dubois delivers a powerful and ‘bigger than life’ performance with her strong, clear country voice and authentic style. The music of today’s country talents such as Martina McBride, Terri Clark, Dixie Chicks, Miranda Lambert and many others along with yesterday’s legends such as Patsy Cline, Connie Smith, Dolly Parton, Patty Loveless, Trisha Yearwood, and Highway 101 is recreated through the gifted vocal talents of this female country vocalist.

 In May 2008, Shelly Dubois released her debut CD ‘I’m Not Looking Back’. All ten songs are penned by Dubois - ‘About Men’, ‘I’m Not Lookin’ Back’ and ‘Time for Leavin’ all  receive internet radio in Canada, the United States, Austria, France and the Netherlands.  Shelly also released the single “This Town” written by notable Nashville songwriter Gretchen Peters in 2012.  Shelly will be releasing new singles in 2014 working towards the release of an EP in early 2015.

 Having experienced the loss of her daughter to brain cancer shortly after the release of her  debut CD, Shelly set all business aside and focused her attention to her family.  In memory of her daughter Chantal, and wanting to ‘give back,’ the Dubois family established “The Chantal Dubois Memorial Fund”, a resource available for families that find themselves in need of financial assistance during their child’s battle with cancer. Three dollars of each CD sale is donated to this fund, as well as other monies raised through fundraising performances.  While living in British Columbia, Shelly worked with the BC Childhood Cancer Association and helped raise over $10,000 that was donated to various families going through this crisis.  Now a resident back in Alberta, Shelly is currently touring the province performing shows in support of Helping Families Handle Cancer – a non-profit organization based in Calgary that provides financial support to families that have a child battling cancer. 

 In 2011, Shelly was nominated in three categories with the BC Country Music Association for Female Vocalist, Horizon Award, and Traditional Country Award and she also performed in the New Artist Showcase.  Shelly moved back to her native Alberta in 2012 and after one year,  Shelly was very pleased to be nominated by the Alberta Country Music Association in two categories: 2012 Female Artist and Fan’s Choice and once again for 2013 Female Artist.

 Empowered by the connection between music and her audiences, Dubois is a performer who truly values her audience and appreciates each opportunity to perform, whether it’s a small intimate venue or large festival stages. She embraces each opportunity whether she is performing solo, as a duo, a trio, or with a band and she has been fortunate to share the stage for well-known artists such as Duane Steele, Chad Brownlee, Hey Romeo, Jason Blaine, Dean Brody, Jetty Road, Sawyer Brown and Lonestar.  She has performed at some of Canada’s biggest country music festivals such as Merritt Mountain Music Festival, Calgary Stampede and Sunfest Country Music Festival.
