The Poets of Nashville Featuring Shannon LaBrie with Tia Sillers
October 1-2, 2020 • 8 pm • Genevieve's
About The Show
In a life where only uncertainty is certain, Nashville based singer-songwriter Shannon La Brie is committed to bringing her “spirited statement to keep soldiering on” (NPR) to audiences.
Following a Top 20 of 2020 nomination from NPR for her single “Firewalker,” the songstress is now set to release her next LP “Building” on September 25, 2020. Her latest project is inspired by the disastrous Nashville tornado in March 2020. The title track brings her unique blend of americana and soul to a story of self-discovery, reflection and finding strength in pain.
La Brie achieved over 12M streams and received rave reviews from Rolling Stone, CMT, NPR and more for her powerful 2016 album "War & Peace," as well as for her recent single “Firewalker.” As a songwriter, her songs have been recorded by a diverse group of artists including Robert Randolph, Gabe Dixon, and Lily & Madeleine.
“Her songs unfold with style and subtlety, coasting over the albums lush arrangements via La Brie’s gorgeous voice. It’s as if Jeff Buckley and Norah Jones started a band.”
— Rolling Stone
“Made me believe like the great singer-songwriters of yore, maybe this woman has something to say. That in this crazy, mixed up, shoot-up world she can illuminate her story and people can relate.”
— Bob Lefsetz
“A voice that breathes smoke and soul”
— The Washington Post
“She's part Tom Petty, part folk goddess, with Dylanesque lyrics”
Grammy Award-winning songwriter Tia Sillers successes include over 40 singles in multiple music formats with numerous #1 singles and multiple Song of The Year Awards to her credit. Most recently, Sillers was named as one of the 2020 Nominees for the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
More than 30 million records have been sold featuring Sillers’ compositions. Her catalogue has spanned genres, geography and generations of world-renowned recording artists Vince Gill, Trisha Yearwood, John Waite, Engelbert Humperdinck, Little River Band, David Nail, Patti Page, John Pardi and Jennifer Lopez.
Three of Sillers songs have become 21st century classics: Lee Ann Womack’s “I Hope You Dance”, The Dixie Chicks’ “There’s Your Trouble,” and Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s, “Blue On Black.”
