Amanda Shires Brings Her Thoughtful, Vivid Nocturnes to SoHo

Source: New York Music Daily

Amanda Shires was already an established presence on the Americana circuit before she met Jason Isbell. No doubt that connection has given her career an extra boost, but she’s been a first-rate fiddler and a distinctive songwriter since the early zeros. Her latest album, My Piece of Land – streamng at NPR– is Shires’ shout-out to her Texas roots and the red dirt music that she grew up with. The songs are sparse, most of them on the slow and pensive side, building a dusky, mysterious ambience with lingering electric and acoustic guitars, washes of steel, acoustic bass ...

Just Announced: Chris Stapleton added to Jason Isbell / Frank Turner show at Festival Pier

Outlaw state of mind: Country rock fugitive Chris Stapleton, who just snagged a bunch of Grammys last month for his terrific album Traveller, has just been added to the Jason Isbell gig at Festival Pier on June 17th.
