Shellhouse  became official in 2003, taking the name of a mountain in Ferrisburg, Vermont.

The band was started by Bob Teer and Jim Fox, veteran musicians and long time friends, who  had been getting together to jam for many years.

In 2001 their sessions turned more serious and more regular and they began working on arrangements for some of Bob's original songs. 

The vibe was good and the music even better - and the pair fast began realizing they were creating a special and unique sound.


   About Shellhouse ...
Soon after they began recording  Bobís tunes  - and as one was completed, Bob had another one ready to go.
At first they played all the instrument themselves - using their mutli talents on electric and acoustic guitar, mandolin, and bass to create their original sound.

Within time they added the background vocals of Andrea Teer,  who, along with Bob, performed for many years as a folk duo.  Before long the trio had enough songs for an album - and even before the band had officially formed, the  first CD titled Boomerang - was released to wide local and national critical acclaim.

With the success of Boomerang , and the demand for their
sound to jump from the CD to the stage,  the trio decided
to expand their reach by adding both a bass player and a
drummer - and in 2003, Shellhouse was officially created.

While the first configuration of the band was enough to
put Shellhouse on the map,  sadly, it was not to last.  Before
long Bob and Jim were auditioning a host of drummers -
some quite good. But it was drummer Bob DeFeo, with his
winning personality and professional drumming chops, 
who ultimately fit the Shellhouse profile - and
in 2004  he officially
joined the band. 

Finding the right bassist proved to be an odyssey. They tried out a good many
played with a few and ultimately lucked out when bassist Mashall Breakstone
answered their ad.

A bassist for a number of popular Burlington bands ., they knew instantly that
Marshall was a kindred spirit with the experience thechops and right style both
vocally and on bass,to complete the Shellhouse sound.

Shellhouse gigs throughout the greater Vermont area playing
original songs and cover tunes by Van Morrison,  Tom Petty,  John Hiatt, 
Bob Dylan,  The Band,  Eagle Eye Cherry,  Warren Zevon & more.

In January of 2012, Shellhouse  released their second CD of original music
titled Indian Summer..

Shellhouse can be heard locally on Vermont  radio stations like
WZXP 97.9 FM and The Poine at 104.7 and at clubs and venues
around the greater Burlington area.
