about

“If there’s any upside to a global pandemic…”, Well Wishers frontman Jeff Shelton explains, “I suppose it’s being locked down and afforded the time to write and record a new album!” Shelf Life, the 11th full-length studio album from the Well Wishers, was written and produced in the short span of just five months, shortly after nationwide lockdowns began in response to the growing Covid crisis. Lyrically, the album explores themes and emotions surfaced from the pandemic – from loneliness, isolation, frustration, but also nods toward resilience, hope, and love. “It’s a truly unusual time…”Shelton continues, “I’m not sure I could have written this particular album in any other time. It’s strange to think what would have surfaced creatively under different circumstances.” Musically, Shelf Life hits on the Well Wishers’ tried and true formula of hook-filled melodies, soaring vocal harmonies, big bold guitars and carefully layered arrangements that highlight a honed and skilled pop songcraft.

Shelton was assisted by a few guests this go-round, including Bay Area cohorts Bradley Skaught (Bye Bye Blackbirds), KC Bowman, and former Headslide bandmate Pete Bohan, who each offered stunning guitar work on three of the album’s tracks.
