The first time I heard ‘Alcohol‘ by Shannon LaBrie I became obsessed. I needed to hear it again and again. I couldn’t stop listening. I had it on repeat for weeks. It’s beautifully sad. It punches you in the gut. I think everyone has someone in their life that this song reminds them of. The lyrics are poetic and at the same time very visual. The melody is intoxicating.  And her voice…it doesn’t get better than this. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

Adept on the piano and guitar, Shannon LaBrie was “raised on James Taylor and Lauren Hill.” LaBrie’s debut album, Just Be Honest, debuted in the Top Ten of iTunes’ Singer/Songwriter chart in February 2013. Perhaps the song that has gotten the most attention is “I Remember A Boy,” backed by soulful guitar tones that hint at Daniel Lanois. Bob Lefsetz singled it out in The Lefsetz Letter, noting: “This track affected me. Made me believe like the great singer-songwriters of yore, maybe this woman has something to say. That in this crazy, mixed-up, shook-up world she can illuminate her story and people can relate.”

LaBrie’s debut at Austin City Limits Music Festival earned her several impressive reviews of her live performance. Austin Chronicle raved “LaBrie is a true guitarist and singer/songwriter from Nashville whose soulful voice’s sensual honey-crisp highs brings to mind the late, great Jeff Buckley.”
