Shelleyan Orphan

Shelleyan Orphan

Having attracted a notable cult following during the 1980s and 90s for their lush, otherworldly marriage of pop, folk trip-hop and chamber-music, Shelleyan Orphan - aka Caroline Crawley and Jem Tayle - returned in 2008 with their first album for 16 years, We Have Everything We Need.

I love Shelleyan Orphan. Ms. Crawley has the voice of an angel and Mr. Tayle is an exceptionally creative musician.

Justin Seaman
Good Song.....and your sister is very hot .....

I just dug out Helleborine and realize it's now 22 years old!!! Great album, good to see you folk back out there.

Nicky Crawley
That's my sister and I'm so very proud of her! I may be biased but their new album is brilliant!!
