Professional songwriter and recording artist. I've worked with world renowned artists DJ Carl Cox, Vanessa Amorosi, Josh Abrahams. I cowrote & featured on an International Dance Music Award winning song. My work has been released by international artists & used in films/shows.
I am available to:
Record vocals for your project
Create a top-line for your track
Write lyrics for your song
Create a melody out of your lyrics
Write a song for your project
Finish a song you have started
I've had extensive experience in world class studios recording my own material as well as singing and writing tunes for others. I love collaborating on songs (collaborating with others comes naturally to me) and I can write lyrics and music in lots of different styles. I love creating unique and interesting top lines. My favourite styles are pop, EDM and folk, but I sing blues, jazz, rock or almost anything. I've been classically trained and have a good knowledge of music theory.
So whether you need me to write a song from scratch, help you finish your song, or write a hook for your track, I'm here and happy to help!
I prefer to do my work in my home studio and have a variety of equipment to cater to different styles and sounds. If you have a specific request I can work in a rented studio for an additional fee.

Super cute & unique voice. Very professional, quick response & comfortable to work with.
Shelley does great work! She is easy going, knowledgeable and has a fantastic voice.
Shelly Segal..... A very Rare Talent!! One of the most talented songwriters in the industry. She has a super unique and heartfelt approach to her writing. On top of that her voice is incredible. 5 Stars easy.
Shelley has been my most significant influence, guiding force and helping hand in writing and developing my own songs. Years ago it was with her encouragement and teaching that I first began to write and in recents times Shelley has helped review rework and improve so many aspects of my writing. Amazing ability and talent for engaging and empathising with others’ material, and the passion and fun she brings to the colloboration and writing process make her an absolute joy to work with.
I absolutely love working with Shelley.
What an amazing talent, has all the skills. Truly a great song writer. Always a delight, a very special individual. Shelley’s lyrics and melody always magical
As producer of 6 Youtube programs, I’ve turned to Shelley for intro and transition music for our headliners. She has provided the creative and diverse power anthems deserving of our programing. Shelley is a pro, timely, adaptive, and fun to work with.
Working/writing with Shelley was a great experience. The whole process was fun, friendly, creative, professional & meaningful. Shelley has the great ability to connect, empathise & get along with anyone in what can sometimes be a vulnerable process.
Shelley is one of the most talented singer/songwriters around! Her ear is very tasteful whether it's her guitar playing, beautiful folk vocals or her songwriting. Definitely will be working with Shelley again! Also, she is incredibly talented at getting a authentic 80's vocal sound or even more special, her 1920's vibes! WOW! A gem. 10 stars!
Shelley turns everyday words and ideas into beautiful magical music. She took some ideas I had and turned it into a beautiful song.
Like a highly skilled chef that takes basic ingredients and turns them into a delicious dish, she is blessed by that fine sensitivity that allows her to make any idea, or sentence, or feeling, reach anyone. She has a beautiful soul and she can touch anyone with art
Shelly's talent is phenomenal, her voice is transcendent, and she is one of the most beautiful people inside and out - a real delight to work with. I was so honored recently when she took lyrics I wrote one morning and turned them into a full blown song - and then performed it at an event that very same evening! A wonderful person and a truly amazing musician.
recently used shelley to record a lead vocal melody on a project, ross union. easy to work with, takes direction well, collaborative, strong delivery, solid pitch, emotive. will be using her again.
I am am actor/writer/producer and recently had my directorial debut on a film called Hannah Rosenthal. As I was writing my film Hannah , I already knew I wanted to use Shelly's song Saved as the sound track.The song is such a large part of the film and it brings in a whole new dimension. I look forward to working with Shelley on many more projects, she is truly a unique shinning star.
