New Shelby Lynne — Revelation Road

Written by

Shelby Lynne has long been a favorite KCRW artist. If you want raw and honest from your singer-songwriters, Shelby is your gal.  She’s calling her forthcoming album “Revelation Road” her “most personal album ever” – which is hard to believe if you’re a fan of her breakthrough disc “I Am Shelby Lynne”.

It will be out October 18 on her own label, EVERSO Records and the title track is a reflection on redemption set to propulsive, powerful, yet almost meditative, music.  Her voice, as always, indicates the hard life she’s lived as well as her determination. She’s a true survivor.
