For eleven years Shirley Novak was a professional singer/songwriter touring nationally and throughout Europe, and writing/recording four CD's of original material. With her own unique brand of acoustic music, she played to audiences all over Europe numbering anything from 20 in an intimate setting, through to audiences of up to 13,000 at various festivals and on TV.
Her style is acoustic based and playing with a band made up of brush drums, double bass and keyboards, had a distinct sound that to this day she still enjoys.
For the last six years, Shirley has concentrated on producing and arranging not only for her own material, but for a number of other artists often being presented with 'just an idea' (often voice and guitar) and taking it back to her studio to develop ideas and elaborate using modern technology, consulting with the artist every step of the way. This has included pieces for film, Jingles and background..
Her style is centred around her philosophy that 'music is what feelings sound like' she won't produce for production sake, her creativity evolves and develops around what she is hearing and feels from the orginal idea.
