I’ve been following Shelby on Twitter for some time now simply off the strength of her tweets, but recently I realized she’s quite the singer/songwriter as well.
“I wrote this song 2 yrs ago during one of the hardest times in my life, when I legit thought anxiety was going to swallow me whole,” Shelby wrote on Twitter. ” I had to remind myself of how far God had already brought me though & that the past is just that & to breathe.”
Exhale caught my attention with simple but effective production, heartfelt lyrics and a hypnotizing hook. The perfect background music for lounging on a Sunday afternoon, the song has a relaxing mid-nineties feel that I really dig. But really listen to the lyrics; the West Seattle native drops gems on this one.
