“The artists we still listen to today, years after their music was first heard, are mostly soul artists.  We still sing along to all of them with our hearts.”  –Jill Scott

We are Shelter, a Santa Barbara soul music group, who covers classic r & b songs that continue to inspire, energize, and unite. We come from a range of backgrounds and musical traditions, but we share a passion for soul music and for transmitting that energy to our audiences.

The group curates and revitalizes music by Sam Cook, Aretha Franklin, The Platters, The Temptations, The Four Tops, Smokey Robinson, and many other greats.  Shelter has played at the Hilton Rooftop Bar and Bistro, Pure Order Brewing Company, La Cumbre Plaza, The Piano Bar, Apace, M Special, The Palms, Apero, and Pascucci’s; the group is also available for private parties and events.
