I recently had the immense pleasure of catching gorgeous Southern songstress Amanda Shires perform an intimate set here in NYC at Rockwood Music Hall. Amanda’s new album, ‘Carrying Lightning,’ just came out this month and it’s an instant favorite of mine–powerful lyrics and melodies that just embed themselves right in your brain. The set was a stripped-down duo format, with Amanda handling vocals and fiddle and Rod Picott on acoustic guitar. The next day I was lucky enough to join Amanda and Rod at the studios of WNYC, where they performed live on Soundcheck and once again floored me.
The best part? Amanda’s coming back to NYC on June 2 to perform at The Living Room. You can count on seeing me there!
