Hailing from what has been described as the music capital of Canada, Winnipeg, Manitoba’s WCMA award winners Sweet Alibi (Jess Rae Ayre, Amber Rose and Michelle Anderson) have captivated audiences with their charming and personal performances.
Tom Power of CBC Radio 2 describes Sweet Alibi as this: “If Mumford and Sons and the Supremes had a love child it would be named Sweet Alibi.” A fitting characterization for a group that blends soulful and powerful vocal harmonies with the sincerity of folk and the foot stomping energy of roots. Their newest release “Walking In The Dark” touches on the subjects of love, death and addiction. It features the two lead vocals of Jess Rae Ayre and Amber Rose. When you add the many talents of Michelle Anderson including vocal harmony, banjo and guitar alongside Jess and Amber's songful framework, you end up with the unmistakeable sound that has left audiences adoring this Winnipeg group. “The appeal of Sweet Alibi’s sound hinges on their ability to mix elements of folk, roots, and country, then present it in the context of a tightly-structured pop song.”- The Manitoban. They will be releasing Walking In The Dark in Europe this October, with a tour to follow in early 2018.
