Shelton is a 4-piece rock and roll ensemble hailing from Birmingham, Alabama; an unlikely city for pop-smart songwriters. Musically and lyrically, Shelton draws influences from several different eras of rock music. Without following modern trends and searching for ways to subgenre their style, they've established themselves as a rock and roll outfit inspired by the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and a variety of modern acts including Creeper Lagoon, Pete Yorn, and the Pernice Brothers. "The main problem we have with the majority of the modern music scene is that it is plagued with trendy, fickle artists who only care about dollar signs," stated lead guitarist Shane Jewell. If you are a fan of passionately driven rock and roll music you should definitely consider picking a copy of their debut EP Whatever Gets You Down, which was released February 27, 2004.
