New to our roster this year, the band continues to wow audiences across the country, touring relentlessly as they have for the past several years. Their single “Middle Ground” spent several weeks on CBC Radio 2 Top 20 Chart, with “Walking In The Dark” hitting the Earshot National Charts at #15! This past fall they were nominated for two Canadian music awards and have just returned from a co-headline Canadian tour with Toronto’s Jadea Kelly. The group is versatile, adaptable, making them an ideal addition to a variety of workshops, bringing their vibrant energy to your festival stages.
"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
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 since 2009 with their charming and personal performances. With 3 releases, over 360 shows across Canada, 33 plus festival performances, in numerous radio performances and interviews, Sweet Alibi is fast becoming a well-known Roots/Pop group.
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 new single “Middle Ground” from their 3rd album “Walking In The Dark” was featured on CBC Radio 2’s top 20 for 7 weeks in a row. The album has recently been nominated for a WCMA for 2016 “Roots/Duo Group of the Year” and by the Canadian Folk Music Awards for 2016 “Vocal Group of the Year”.
