Stunning songwriting that recalls the Appalachian greats – Shelley’s incredible voice and songwriting are front and center here for an album that’s both wider reaching yet more intimate than ever before.

Recorded with modern folk greats Nathan Salsburg & James Elkington in Iceland, ‘Like The River Loves The Sea’ is an honest and open album that’ll have fans of all from Vashti Bunyan to Karen Dalton to Julie Byrne hooked from the first swelling strings. “exquisite… shelley’s luminously inviting voice is framed by sensitive arrangements…as she excamines the necessity of finding something of beauty in the most testing circumstances” 9/10 - uncut
