Album Notes
Sometime in early 2013 I woke up one morning with a very clear premonition that I should write and record a short Well Wishers EP called "Dunwoody". I've since discovered the name refers to a bucolic suburban enclave northwest of Atlanta, Georgia. While I've never been there, nor do I know anyone who lives in Dunwoody, it did not quell my motivation to craft five songs that chronicle the imaginary lives of those trapped in Southeastern suburban bliss...or misery, depending on how bad the heat and humidity might be.
- Jeff Shelton, Fall 2013

Acoustic power pop isn't bad
Dunwoody – The Well-Wishers
This five-song EP is a slice-of-life look at the possible lives – and loves -- of the
residents of an area in Georgia. The largely-acoustic-driven pop features the clear voice
and the effective melodies of Californian musician Jeff Shelton. He is essentially the
Well-Wishers power-pop band that he’s fronted for a decade with a half-dozen
recordings over the years.
The best tune on “Dunwoody” is the rocking promise of “Open Up Your Eyes” that

“Peel Away” and “Real Today” are more layered pop tunes that amp up the EP sonically
while lyrically examining the nature of romance.
Shelton also headed the popular California regional power-pop band the
Spinning Jennies for a decade after its inception in 1993. “Dunwoody” continues
Shelton’s experimentation with pop sounds as he enters his third decade of making
