Winnipeg Roots/Folk trio, Sweet Alibi will grace the stage of The Company House on June 7th. Kicking off the show is Newfoundland born/Halifax based Don Brownrigg. The show starts at 8:30 and is only $10.
Comprised of three core members (Jessica Rae Ayre, Amber Nielsen, and Michelle Anderson), Sweet Alibi has performed everywhere from intimate coffee houses and mainstay clubs to outdoor concert series and festivals. Their self-titled debut album was produced by Juno Award-winner winner Mitch Dorge.
Since their debut in the spring of 2009, Sweet Alibi has been captivating audiences with an alluring blend of soulful melody and roots/folk tradition. Their playful sense of lyricism set to powerful vocal harmony sets the stage for a performance that is up front and personal, and instinctively compelling.
Drawing influence from a vast array of musical references, Sweet Alibi applies a quirky pop sensibility to an eclectic set. Songs range in mood from hauntingly provocative ballads to left of center takes on everything from Country and Soul to Old Time Jazz. Backing their vocals with electric guitars, banjos, hand percussion, ukuleles, upright bass, and whatever else they can get their hands on, Sweet Alibi compliment a diverse set with an equally eclectic instrumentation.
The Company House will prove an ideal setting to see Sweet Alibi.
