Press Release

Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter/violinist Amanda Shires will release her highly anticipated fifth album To The Sunset on August 3rd via Silver Knife/Thirty Tigers. To The Sunset is Shires’ second album with Grammy award-winning producer Dave  Cobb  and  represents  an  adventurous  move  with  an  edgier  sound  and  attitude. Shires continues to push herself artistically and sonically, but the spotlight always shines brightly on her unmistakable songwriting style and emotive and distinctive vocals.  

 

To  The  Sunset  is  a  compelling  collection  of  narratives  often  told  from  a  female perspective.  The  themes  range  from  grappling  with  self-esteem  in  “Mirror,  Mirror”  tomental illness and addiction in standout track “Wasn’t I Paying Attention?” and the powerof a changed perspective with a dash of her signature wit in “Break Out The Champagne”.Shires has a penchant for delivering her stories in ways that are intelligent and poetic yetthoughtful and warm, feeling as if coming from a good friend. One of the boldest and most honest traits about Amanda Shires is her fearless way of approaching subjects and plotswithin her songs. Recorded at RCA Studio A, Shires is joined on To The Sunset by special guests including Jason Isbell (guitar), Dave Cobb (bass) Peter Levin (keys), and Jerry

Pentecost. 


Shires' upcoming tour includes a return appearance on Mountain Stage Sunday September 23 along with Israel Nash, Teitur and more guests TBA.
