A gal who knows what she wants :D

I just shared a never before released version of my song 'What I Want' from 'An Easy Escape' (2014) to my Patreons.

https://www.patreon.com/posts/unreleased-of-i-6187021

I recorded the song with some close friends a few years ago and it is a softer, sweeter version of the tune, with beautiful acoustic guitars.

For a minimum $1 per month on my Patreon subscription service you can receive this never before heard track as well as my full solo back catalogue, new releases, live concerts, home recordings and videos!!!!

Your support will help me to keep making music and touring.

Performing for the Camp Quest North West Talent Show with Dan Lombardo. We are sharing a song from our upcoming project about the Puget Sound. Tonight we shared this song in front of an audience for the first time and it was so special.

This camp has been incredible thanks to the counselors and the kids. We are all lucky to be here together.

Thanks to Ben Frey for the pic

Last month I had the pleasure of performing at the 'Bring Back Our Motto' Rally in Olympia at the Washington State Capitol.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_k-74x4lS04

The event was a counter rally to Franklin Graham's thousands-strong rally at the capital where he encouraged the crowd to get into politics and school boards.
To bring jesus into the government and the schools.

I was proud to be part of the counter rally and grateful to Robert Ray and his family for their hard work and activism.

We are wanting a secular country where one religion does not control everybody. Instead of 'One nation under god' let's go back to the original motto: 'Out Of Many, One'

Check out the other fantastic speakers at the event:
Travis Simmons
Jennifer Goulet
Damien Marie Athope
Sam Mulvey
Rebecca Friedman
Bob Seidensticker
Kerri Ray
Scott Bastian
Tarkus Claypool and the Satanic Temple
Robert Ray

Story
Introduction

"For an atheist, she's got a hell of a lot of soul"


Segal's latest release, 'An Atheist Album,' embodies her thoughts on religion and has quickly made her "a new pin-up girl for the international atheist movement." (Barny Zwartz -The Age)


The Melbourne based singer-songwriter became involved in secular activism over two years ago, despite her father being the president of a local synagogue. Her songs are a passionate response to dogmatic belief, inequality, religious oppression and the idea that only the devout can be grateful and good. She enjoys bringing this usually controversial topic to the public discourse and finds music to be a effective medium for expression and raising awareness. "I can say what I think for three minutes without anybody interrupting me." (Melbourne Times City Weekly)


'An Atheist Album' gives a voice to the often underrepresented views of non-religious people, the fastest growing minority in many countries. As one youtube fan wrote, "I can always come home and listen to Shelley remind us all that we have a voice and a movement of our own, and that there is hope for the future." After performing this year at the 'Reason Rally' to a crowd of 25,000 in Washington DC, Segal's music video for her single 'Saved' has gone global. 


Segal grew up in a musical household. She began singing at the age of three, then writing and performing at eleven. Joining her father's Jewish wedding band early on provided her with an ease and enjoyment performing and writing across a broad range of styles including pop, folk, jazz, blues, rock and reggae. 'Saved' has been described as "jazz singing with a Caribbean-rock melody." Intimate, story-telling and biographical lyrics are what unifies Shelley's song-writing across genres. 


Shelley accompanies herself on guitar and has been performing her original music around Melbourne and internationally for the last ten years. She has been teaching vocals, music theory and song-writing for seven years. In 2009 she recorded her first EP, a collection of songs written between 2002 and 2008 with acclaimed producer Josh Abrahams at Fishtank Studios. 


In 2010, Shelley completed a Bachelor of Applied Music from the Box Hill Institute of Tafe. The same year she also wrote and recorded a song with world-renowned DJ Carl Cox. The track, 'Chemistry' was a drum and bass single from his latest album 'All Roads Lead To The Dance Floor.' Segal has performed to crowds with Cox at Stereosonic festival and at the iconic Billboard. In November 2011 a remix of 'Chemistry' spent two weeks at number one on the techno charts.


This year Shelley launched 'An Atheist Album' which has had sales on every continent but Antarctica (though it's never too late). She also featured on the album 'Infidelity' by London socialite Tara Palmer Tomkinson. Shelley has many other musical ventures underway. Upcoming projects include a jazz and folk covers album with her father on the violin, a folk-pop album of love songs titled, 'My Whinging Vagina' and an upbeat indie-folk EP with her partner called 'Snow Pear.'

Therapist Project offers hope for religious abuse victims

There is an epidemic in America that almost no one has heard of.  It is the epidemic of religious abuse.  Religious abuse takes many forms,

The first time that I spoke to Melissa Vincenty I knew that she was the lawyer for me. She was generous with her time and went above and beyond what I ever could have ever expected. I felt prepared, safe and secure in my immigration journey. She is professional, deeply knowledgeable, supportive and a fantastic communicator. She made the process comprehendible and much less intimidating. She worked patiently with me through the details of my case until we found the right steps forward. I am recommending her services to everyone I know and I look forward to working with her for the rest of my career. I am grateful to have found Melissa because now I not only have the best migration lawyer but I also have a great friend.
