“The Shindellas are on a mission to move people and change the world with their art, and we have no doubt they are going to do that” states Chuck Harmony and Claude Kelly. “We have worked hard to create a big sound for them that stands apart from anything else happening in music right now. We are calling it ‘New American Soul.’ Their first single ‘Money,’ is the powerful start of their new movement.”
