Root 66: SHEL’s Roadside Favorites

Jun 15, 2016

Root 66: SHEL's Roadside Favorites

Name: SHEL
Hometown: Fort Collins, CO * Attached photos from farm in Fort Collins
Latest Project: Just Crazy Enough

Driving album: Sting, Fields of Gold — an indisputable band favorite that brings peace and harmony during trying eight-hour drives.

Tacos: Dam Good Tacos in Fort Collins, Colorado. They skirt the tacos with crispy cheese and their horchata is the best we’ve ever had.

Burger: Burger Up in Nashville, Tennessee. Farm to table, healthy, yum yum … and occasional celebrity bartenders.

Health Food: Apple sauce … it's extra healthy if it comes in a pouch!

Truck Stop: LOVE's (located all over the U.S.) cause it seems like they care … or, maybe it's just the name.

Coffeehouse: Ghost Town in Telluride, Colorado.

Record Store: Bizarre Bazaar in Fort Collins, Colorado. A literal treasure trove with used record players and spare parts. Eva scored a sweet pair of Technics there that she brags about too often.

Listening Room: St. Pancras Old Church in London, UK

Airport: Denver International Airport — it's always an adventure!


Tour life.

Highway Stretch: HWY 299 through Shasta Trinity National Park between Redding and Eureka, California. 

Radio Station: All stations playing our songs πŸ˜‰ We especially enjoy interviews with NPR because they have a designated "cough button."

Day Off Activity: 
Sarah: We often take advantage of any day or morning off to film videos. Most recently we shot in Alaska for our “Enter Sandman” video. 
Hannah: Climbing on a rock wall … far away from cell phones and computers.
Eva: Thrift store shopping! Because thriftiness is like a super power, and nothing beats an affordable, unique find in a new city. 
Liza: Hiking whenever possible. Last road adventure was in the Red Wood Forest where Star Wars' Battle of Endor was filmed.
