Sharing my love of music, one note at a time!

Who Is Shelley S. Abbott

The younger years....

Embrace Your Passion

I started playing guitar at an early age of 13, teaching myself advanced methods after my Dad taught me three basic chords.  

I was born in Newbern, North Carolina and raised on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.  Shortly after graduation I joined the Armed Forces and spent six years in San Antonio, Texas before returning home to Maryland.  During this time I wrote songs and performed for friends and family.

In 1976 I performed my first solo gig at the Cambridge VFW with Mr. Bud McCollister.  The very next morning  I incorporated other musicians and started my first Band....Crystal Blue.  Our first 45 rpm and full LP of original music soon followed.

Over the next years I sang and played music with several bands earning a reputation as "The Singing Dockmaster" as I worked a full time job as a marina manager for 10 years in St. Michaels, MD.

Live Life in Song

The years that followed I performed as a solo act and as a Patsy Cline impersonator doing benefit shows to raise money for local charities and the needy.   Music is my passion.  My voice has a remarkable range allowing me to sing most any song from Sinatra to Lady Gaga.  I can impersonate vocally Conway Twitty, Elvis, Brenda Lee, Patsy Cline, Roy Orbison, Louis Armstrong and many more.  I love to entertain large crowds of various ages!

I have written numerous songs and recorded more than 15 music compilations to include covers and self written songs on 45 rpm, 33 rpm albums, cassettes, 8-tracks and cd's.

Be Inspired By Everything

I find inspiration for my music in life and all that it has given to me.  God has been good to me and mine.  I write and sing from my heart.  It's not about singing notes, it's telling a story with music.  

I write about the good , the bad , and the love I have known.

 I pray I can leave a legacy for those who knew me and for those who hear my music long after I have left this body.
