Highway South Records artist and Detroit native David Shelby visited the MusicRow offices on Wednesday (June 26).
Shelby picked up trumpet and accordion playing at a young age and eventually studied Jazz and Contemporary Media in college. After college, he played lead trumpet in various groups, including performances with Phil Collins and Stevie Wonder. He was first exposed to country music through a Garth Brooks concert. “You could tell Garth really cared about the crowd and entertaining,” says Shelby.
Shelby performed songs from his EP, including “Kick A Little Dirt Around” and “Moonshine.” On Aug. 8, Shelby will perform a showcase at Nashville’s 12th & Porter.
