ABOUT ME

Frances Shelley -  a piano player / improviser using electronic soundscapes and minimalist piano in the contemporary classical genre.   Inspired mostly by nature (living in deep countryside in Suffolk) and especially interested in improvisation and responding to situation.

An accomplished recording artist, what she does that's a bit different  in concert: is to start with nothing and create music live in 'free improv' style.  In nature, on the shoreline, amongst trees with her custom-made, solar-powered, baby grand piano  (that fits in her car!) 

"I believe that in the act of spontaneous creation there is a different magic - and the audience responds accordingly." 

She makes exquisite films, spell-binding and deeply influenced by the environment


"... beguiling, bewitching music, transporting you to another time and place "   Thomas Dolby

" entrancing, her most authentic album to date " Jools Holland, on Wilderness Rhapsodies
