Shelby Lynne

A unique performer in today's pigeon-holed music scene. Shelby Lynne first appeared as a New Country upstart in 1988, belting out a duet with none other than George Jones. A few straight country records were followed by increasingly experimental forays into Big Band and Swing Revival. To all the material Lynne brings a powerful, heartbreaking voice and a palpable love for performing. Her song, "Your Lies," rocks with a shattering '70s soul groove, the closest thing to "Midnight Train to Georgia" there is. That song is followed up by a foot-stompin' roots jam with a bluesy feel and harmonized country vocals. This is an artist who, within the confines of mainstream music, is constantly challenging herself and her audience as well, a very rare thing today. And she sings real good, too.

    Shelby Lynne & Robinella and The Cc String Band

    Year: 2003

    Runtime: 56 min

    East Tennessee natives Robinella and the CCstring band captivates their audience with new songs including "Honey Honey Bee" and "Man Over." Both songs are a testament to the acclaim that this jazz-bluegrass-swing band has earned from not just critics, but fans and peers alike.

    Grammy winner Shelby Lynne plays songs from the album that critics are calling her defining effort - Identity Crisis - a collection of songs that the singer/songwriter penned and produced herself. The album, similar to this Soundstage, shows just how versatile Lynne can be. From gospel "10 Rocks," to blues "Evil Man," to country "Buttons and Beaus," Lynne's throaty alto can carry her into any arena. Her delivery as a performer is at once flirtatious and captivating. When she sings "If I were smart, I wouldn't have a heart" (from "If I Were Smart") the audience smiles, not just at her honesty, but at the delicate and edgy way she reveals herself. The same enigma sparkles through other tunes including "Telephone" and "Gotta Be Better."
