GRAMMY WINNER SHOWCASES HER ECLECTIC, TOP-SHELF AMERICANA
A sort of sultry country goddess, singer Shelby Lynne doesn't let pesky genres tie her down. You can't box in Shelby Lynne as a country singer; blending deep soul, Southern twang, and cosmopolitan pop, her sound has more sides than a schizophrenic debate club. There's a little bit of soul in everything Alabama girl Shelby Lynne does. It's a sonic tattoo that won't wash off, whatever style she's working in. Her music can bounce from a luscious mix of '60s-Aretha influence and '70s Philly-soul sheen to streamlined folk-pop to a kick-up-your-heels Southern soul honky-tonkin' stomper that casts a fond glance back towards Patsy Cline and Kitty Wells.
