Western Canadian Music Award Winners, Sweet Alibi, have been captivating audiences across Canada. The Winnipeg-based folk/pop band infuse their signature harmonies with influences of everything from folk to country to soul, without a hint of shame. Sweet Alibi's Jess Rae Ayre, Amber Quesnel, and Michelle Anderson share personal experiences that are genuinely felt in song. Tom Power of CBC Radio 2 describes the band: "If Mumford and Sons and the Supremes had a love child you would name it Sweet Alibi". Audiences have been raving nationwide for their performances at Winnipeg Folk Fest, Juno Fest, Canada Day in Ottawa, International jazz festivals, and many concert series. Currently you can find the band touring their new material from their CFMA/WCMA nominated release We’ve Got To (produced by Rusty Matyas of Imaginary Cities).
Keep your ears to the ground for Sweet Alibi's third album " Walking In The Dark " to be released. Walking In the Dark is a collection of songs written by Jess, Amber, and Michelle over the last few years, captured flawlessly by Juno Winning Producer Murray Pulver (The Bros. Landreth, Crash Test Dummies).
Walking in the Dark is a melodically rewarding exploration of relationships, heartache, loss of loved ones and the search for balance when living life on the road. Sweet Alibi’s powerhouse vocal harmonies and memorable songs have never been stronger.
Praise for Sweet Alibi:
“Heartfelt lyrics and that intangible quality that often catapults a band into stardom. In 2012 they were nominated for best vocalist at the Canadian Folk Music Awards–future nominations (and wins) seem destined–and recently they were a featured band at the Junos.”- Chaka V., The Winehouse Mag,
“Sweet Alibi are quite an amalgam of textured harmonies and diverse sounds on this award-winning latest album. At times, traditional, and on occasion sounding like they could be playing on a pop radio station. Both of their albums are available in iTunes, in case you were wondering…” - Calgary Herald
“It's a trio of women who can just as easily channel Adele as cover Woody Guthrie.” - Amanda Putz, CBC news
“What a wonderful thing to come upon this band after listening to submission after submission of top-40 wannabees! Vocal harmonies that will stop you in your tracks, and solid musicianship from three women who really seem to have their act together.” - Candace, Secret Frequency
