Today, it’s another nod to some local talent, and another reminder to #buylocal music.
Winnipeg’s Sweet Alibi released their third album, Walking in the Dark, in 2016. The first track on the album, “Keep Showing You,” was released as a single in October 2015.
The band’s music falls into adult contemporary, folk/roots and soul. It is a unique mix of these, fronted by a trio of singers including Jess Rae Ayre, Amber Nielsen and Michelle Anderson, with Ayre most often as lead vocalist. Alasdair Dunlop (bass) and Sandy Fernandez (drums) round out the quintet.
A fourth album has been in the works and was expected for release in the fall of 2019. So far, they’ve released two singles: “Confetti (2019) and “Really Great” (2020). I’ve listened to the latter track and look forward to hearing more of the album and the evolution of their sound. There’s no store on the band’s website, but both songs can be listened to there. Also, no Bandcamp page, but two albums and several singles are available for purchase in the iTunes Store. Please visit and purchase Sweet Alibi’s music to support the musicians who created it.
Now you know a little about why this is my song of the day for today. Thanks for joining me here, and please enjoy.
