Shelly Rollison & Pamela Machala – http://www.shellyrollison.com/ & http://www.pamelamachala.com/ – Shelly Rollison is a Denver singer-songwriter who recently released Cardiac Flashback. Pamela Machala is a Boulder singer-songwriter who is working on a new album and has the single “Barista.” They will be having separate sets at UMS. We pair them because they have a show together in August for the release of the “Barista” video. We think it’s a duo we want to see more of.
