Shell Marie is an up and coming Contemporary Christian singer-songwriter from Zachary, Louisiana. She is no stranger to the music scene. Beginning at the age of three, you could find her singing at church, festivals, and in music theater. At age 12, she began pursuing a music career in the pop genre, recording and performing in Nashville; releasing her first album in 2015 and her second album in 2017.
But, in 2017, she was faced with a crossroad of conflicting values, and after much prayer and discernment, she made the decision to integrate her faith and her music, transitioning from being a Pop artist to a Contemporary Christian artist. For the first time, she felt a peace and certainty that she was doing what she was meant to do. Music and faith have always been strongholds for her throughout everything she’s faced in her life, and so it only felt right to bring the two together.
From a young age, God has been at work in her life in many ways. She dealt with being bullied for several years. She has faced many adversities during her career; wrestled with self-doubt; and even doubt in her faith. But, her faith in God enabled her to work through each of her experiences and use them for good. She found her faith in Jesus during her hardships and that has given her a passion for encouraging others and being a voice for those who are going through hard times. Her music has given her the platform to be that voice.
Her goal is to help the people of her generation to hear about the love of God from someone they can relate to. Being a teen, she knows the issues that teens are going through, such as fear, anxiety, self-doubt, and depression. Shell Marie hopes to use her music to introduce people to a true hope that goes above and beyond anything they’re facing. And for her, that hope is Jesus.
Shell Marie’s debut Contemporary Christian album "New Creation" is now available on all platforms and she is available for concerts and events by contacting her through her website.
