Shannon Wright is set to release her fourth album with Quarterstick titled Let in the Light on May 8. With Andy Baker, who also produced Dyed in the Wool, she's created another fully emotive album. Let in the Light is softer but no less affecting. She has a way of pulling out all of those feelings you've pushed way down deep.
"There’s an intensity to her music that can move you to joy, tears, or terror. Such an honest portrayal of emotion leaves you wondering if you are actually meant to hear it, almost as if you stumbled upon a sibling’s diary and can’t help but read it--even though you know you shouldn’t."
Much like Cat Power, Joanna Newsom, and Tara Jane O'Neil, she'll be playing at Dirty Three's curated All Tomorrow's Parties in April. Her live show is intense and not to be missed. Hopefully, she'll fully tour for this album.
