Joan Shelley to release new Jeff Tweedy produced album, tour the UK & Ireland

0

Joan Shelley will release the follow up to her 2015 LP Over and Even this spring. It was recorded at The Loft in Chicago with Jeff Tweedy producing and again features guitarist Nathan Salsburg, this time with Jeff Tweedy, Spencer Tweedy and James Elkington accompanying Shelley on 11 new songs. More details will be announced in the coming weeks.

Over and Even was an album of the year at NPR Music and in the Los Angeles Times. Rolling Stone gave it 4 stars, calling it “a masterfully turned set of folk reflections.”

Shelley will perform at Lincoln Center this March as part of the American Songbook series, amidst opening dates with Wilco (including two sold out nights at the Beacon Theater) and Richard Thompson. She will perform two sets at the Big Ears Festival in Knoxville, TN: a solo performance, and as part of a song cycle entitled The Way Forth composed and led by pianist Rachel Grimes. Then later this spring, she will return to the United Kingdom and Ireland for a series of headlining dates.
