Shelby Lynne Acoustic Tour
Tears, Lies, And Alibis, due out April 20th, marks the first release on Lynne's own newly founded label, EVERSO RECORDS, which will be distributed through Fontana, the award-winning independent distribution division of Universal Music Group.
She'll be performing at the Fontana party at SXSW on March 18th. Coming on the heels of Just a Little Lovin', Lynne's critically acclaimed 2008 tribute to Dusty Springfield, Tears, Lies, And Alibis affirms her position as a visionary, iconoclastic artist who deftly weaves country, soul, rock, blues, pop and folk influences to forge her own unique style. Like Identity Crisis (2003) and Suit Yourself (2005), this sparse, unguarded collection was produced by Lynne, who evokes a live-in-the-studio vibe from a stellar group of musicians.
Drawing inspiration from the everyday, Lynne uses the familiar to render a complex internal landscape. From the exuberant "Rains Came" and dreamy "Something To Be Said," her ode to the iconic Airstream trailer, to the restless, bluesy "Old Dog" and poignant "Alibi," her evocative imagery brings to life the scarred yet determined group of survivors whose stories are told in Tears, Lies, And Alibis.
