At last! A site for Shelktone Music, Shelkey friends, and more!


Nate Shelkey - AKA: Shelktone

Small surprise that a man originally from "Swingfield" Virginia should come to write and perform some of the most happening music today. 
-Jerzy Mandello (Washington Post) 

Nate Shelkey is a voice for the overlooked and under-appreciated temporary worker. This is sparkling 
correspondence indeed!

I'm about to go home for Thanksgiving. Pretty exciting. Maybe I'll post my grandma's secret receipe for stuffing. This is the highlight of the holiday for me, making this stuffing. What are some other highlights of my life? The song a week project where I write a new song every week, and then I debut it at Variety Underground at Parkside continues. You can read about it here. I think I'm up to ten songs now. The new album is being recorded at Studio Apartment and released by Robin Hood Records. Huckleberry Slim is looking for a drummer. So if you know one, or are one, please inquire within. There's more improv shows, always for gigawatt. We'll be up every Tuesday in November. And I'm sure you were wondering when that dvd of that Vermont PBS thing was coming out, right? Where I play the sleazy banker? Well, it's out. Order it! And I'll have a dvd shortly of the short I did for Sam Sklaver and Wendi Butterworth called, "Meditations On Mini-Golf" starring Will Hines. Ridiculously, you also might see me on a Citibank commercial driving a golfcart. Glamorous, I know. And then finally, I think I am set to play an old dancer in January in a musical. Look forward with glee!

Need something to listen to? How about a theme song written by Porter Mason. It's rough, but fun. It's called "These Are Our Days". Also, just look at the main site at for his new cartoon strip with a sometime recurring little songbird named Shelktone.
