Description

"It’s all rock & roll—no golf!" is how acclaimed singer/songwriter/violinist Amanda Shires describes her electrifying fifth album, To The Sunset. She’s borrowed a lyric from the effervescent track “Break Out the Champagne,” one of ten deftly crafted songs that comprise her powerful new recording. The Texas-born road warrior, new mom, and recently minted MFA in creative writing has mined a range of musical influences to reveal an Amanda Shires many didn’t know existed. “Isn’t it refreshing?” Amanda asks. Indeed. Distorted electric guitars, effects pedals, swirling keys and synths, and rockin’ rhythms certainly suit Shires’ visceral songcraft and lilting soprano. Amanda is renowned for her carefully crafted, evocative songs. Her influences include Leonard Cohen and John Prine, the latter a mentor. Amanda says she also uses songwriting as a way to "get through my own emotional stuff, which is cheaper than a therapist." Kentucky-born songwriter Leah Blevins is special guest.
