SHANNON LABRIE’S SOPHOMORE ALBUM ‘WAR & PEACE’ OUT THIS FRIDAY!

Nashville-based singer-songwriter ShannonSLB Press Pic 2 LaBrie‘s sophomore album War & Peace is out this Friday, April 1, 2016.

LaBrie turns her focus to contemporary America and emotional turmoil on War & Peace. LaBrie’s rich voice anchors the record, atop layers of acoustic guitars, as well as sometimes bursts of electric for emphasis, but the real focus is on the vocal melodies. Songs like “Heaven Crashed Down” and “Alcohol” put painful emotions on display, while “Weight of Your Words” might feature her strongest vocal performance on the album, and “Then There’s You” features a jazzy love duet with Gabe Dixon. 

Paste Magazine premiered the single “It’s Political” a month ago and said “With instrumentals that sound like they could have come straight from Jenny LewisThe Voyager, “It’s Political” is a song about despair and loss of faith in government.  “Politicians today make President Lincoln look like a fairy tale,” said LaBrie. “These days it’s all power and manipulation. Meanwhile, I’m out here starving for the truth! It’s the weakness in me that wants to give up and bury my hope of ever having an honest president who stands for what’s right. I see glimpses of hope but, in the end, once the elected steps foot in the White House, they close the door on us. They are after a pot of gold, and in the end, we have to pay for their greed. I guess I’m just another millennial longing for the voice of Honest Abe.”

A SONG YOU NEED TO HEAR: SHANNON LABRIE “ALCOHOL”

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.”
