ACCEPTING DOGECOIN DONATIONS! DHC1Db7HxJrdq6G8md74xZgYkqkKD4bFPm Shelby Callaway began his love for music at a very early age. He got his first battery powered little tyke piano at the age of 9 and became fascinated with the piano. He played it as often as he could. His love for electronic music began quite early as well, listening to anything with a 4 on the floor beat that had an upbeat energetic groove to it. When he was 14 he stumbled across a program called rebirth which emulates the old roland 303 synth, as well as roland 808 and 909 drum machines. He dabbled with rebirth untill he could master all of the different features and came out with his first cd called “Dahundamix”. With great enthusiasm he distributed homemade cd’s amongst his classmates and became an instant hit.

At the same time, Shelby caught wind of another art form that drew his attention almost as equally as making music. Watching his fellow classmates djing at a school dance, he fell in love with the art of turntablism. Over the next few years he acquired a pair of cdj’s and a mixer which he spent hours learning how to mix. In a very short amount of time he had all but mastered the art of mixing at small house parties and school dances. He teamed up with fellow DJ and good friend Chris Jackson, who went on to throw rave parties that were an instant and explosive hit. Shelby and Chris became very well known for their abilities to get crowds to move in the small town of Jackson Hole Wyoming where they grew up. They spun larger and larger parties that became more and more popular.

At the end of high school, Chris and Shelby parted ways due to changing life plans. Shelby continued to stay in the Jackson Hole valley for the next few years playing at parties and bars. At this point Shelby had his second album on the way for release at mp3.com. This album was an even bigger hit than before as his distribution came from the internet and local stores in Jackson. The reputation of Shelby Callaway was growing, and spreading out across the nation. In 2004 he played in multiple cities across the nation. In 2005 he was invited to play at one of the biggest Christian music festivals in America, Cornerstone in Bushnell Illinois. The dance barn exploded with dancing when Shelby played his energetic and emotion driven 1 hour set.
In 2008, Shelby Callaway decided to join the army and put his music career on hold. For 2 years he trained with the army, and was then deployed to Afghanistan for a year. He brought along his 25 key midi controller and laptop in the hopes of doing a little production in his free time when he wasn’t on duty. He produced Kate’s Song and Slipstream while he was over seas. When he got home, he submitted them to Deeplife Records and PWM Records. Deeplife and PWM enthusiastically took on Shelby’s projects, and quickly released them with multiple remixes. They became instant hits all over the world. Shelby Callaway is quickly becoming a household name and you should expect his next releases to be even bigger!
