Info zu I Can't Imagine

Shelby Lynnes Stimme, die zu zwei Teilen aus Alabama-Sonnenschein und einem Teil aus Memphis-Regensturm zusammengemixt zu sein scheint, gilt eines der großartigsten Instrumente in der gesamten Popmusik. Und auf ihrem neuen Album I Can’t Imagine kommt diese Stimme, dezent und sehr flexibel von einer exzellenten Band unterstützt, besser denn je zuvor zur Geltung. Dazu trägt auch bei, dass die zehn prickelnden neuen Songs die unverkennbare Handschrift der Grammy-Preisträgerin tragen. Die Stücke reflektieren das breite Spektrum von Lynnes musikalischen.

Einflüssen: von Southern Soul über Rhythm’n’Blues aus New Orleans sowie kalifornischem Country & Western bis hin zum leidenschaftlichen Sozialbewusstsein eines Woody Guthrie und den bluesigen Vokalisierungen einer Billie Holiday. Als Künstlerin, die stets auf maximale Unabhängigkeit, Authentizität und Originalität bedacht ist, nimmt Shelby Lynne längst einen Platz an der Seite gleichgesinnter Musik-Renegaten wie Neil Young, Gram Parsons, Bobbie Gentry, Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan und Johnny Cash ein. Und mit I Can’t Imagine, ihrem besten und bewegendsten Album seit dem 1999 erschienenen Meilenstein “I Am Shelby Lynne”, unterstreicht sie diesen Rang eindrucksvoll.

Shelby Lynne
was destined to be a singer. Born a singer. She was raised in rural Alabama by musical parents who stressed individuality and the importance of standing apart from others. A terrible student, but avid reader, she loved the written lyric and a beautiful melody. Around the house she was surrounded by country music from the past, Hank Williams, Dottie West, Waylon Jennings, as well as old 45′s that belonged to her parents stacked high with most all Everly Brothers, Beatles, Elvis. It was the old pop music that really turned her soul on. The harmonies that came so naturally to her from such an early age stemmed from her mother, a naturally gifted singer, who guided the diamond in the rough talent on rides to school on freezing Alabama mornings with her younger sister Allison. They sang three part harmonies to pass the time, which brought the threesome so close in life, and in music. The Mills Brothers, Ink Spots, Kay Starr, Everly’s and anything that needed a harmony – this was the car in which to find it.

Shelby started playing guitar by age seven in order to accompany herself on these songs. Her father was a weekend guitar player in bands and bars and taught her a three-chord progression in E, and from there the hunger for more was so intense she learned the rest on her own. By high school graduation, her mind was made up and a trip to Nashville was inevitable. Married to her high school sweetheart with dreams of country music success in mind, they packed and moved to Music City where she met veteran songwriter Bob Tubert. With only a cassette demo in hand, he took a chance and played the tape for the TV producer of a long since gone program on the Nashville Network called “Nashville Now,” hosted by Ralph Emory. After the performance, she was offered a record deal by CBS Records where legendary producer Billy Sherrill came out of semi retirement to produce her first record. It included a duet with country legend George Jones, who praised Lynne’s ability to “own” a song at such an early age. After five albums in Nashville, Lynne was hungry for a change from the Nashville system and searched for a record producer who wanted to collaborate on a project. She enlisted Bill Bottrell, who had produced for Michael Jackson, Madonna, and had big success with Sheryl Crow on the highly successful Tuesday Night Music Club. The album, I Am Shelby Lynne, was recorded on the Northern California coast in 1998.

With the critical success and recognition of I Am Shelby Lynne, she was awarded the Best New Artist GRAMMY® in 2000 – after nearly 13 years in the business. Love, Shelby was released in 2001, followed by a pair of intimate, self-produced albums – Identity Crisis (2003) and Suit Yourself (2005). She made her acting debut in 2005, playing Johnny Cash’s mother in the Fox Searchlight motion picture Walk the Line. Just a Little Lovin’, her critically acclaimed tribute to Dusty Springfield, was released in 2008.

Never one to go with the crowd, Shelby continues to stand apart from the mainstream music world. She recently founded her own label, EVERSO RECORDS. Lynne’s Tears, Lies, And Alibis, EVERSO’s first release, debuted at No. 16 on Billboard’s Top Independent Albums chart in April of 2010. A Top 10 hit at Americana radio, it was hailed by Newsday as “her strongest album in a decade,” a sentiment echoed by numerous critics. She followed Tears, Lies, And Alibis with her first-ever holiday collection, Merry Christmas, released in the fall of 2010.

Revelation Road – Shelby’s most personal record yet – was released on October 18, 2011. She wrote, recorded and produced the album, which included the single ““Heaven’s Only Days Down The Road.” The track was tapped by NPR Music as the “Song of the Day” and the accompanying video was added by CMT. After a yearlong solo acoustic tour, she released Revelation Road Deluxe Edition. In addition to the original disc, the box set included her first-ever live album, Live At McCabe’s, and her first live DVD, Live In London, plus five bonus acoustic tracks, a documentary on the making of Revelation Road and more.
