Jess Rae Ayre & Amber Nielsen from Sweet Alibi
With their dazzling fourth album Make A Scene, Winnipeg combo Sweet Alibi masterfully deliver soulful roots-pop elevated by the luminous vocal harmonies of Jess Rae Ayre, Amber Nielsen, and Michelle Anderson. Produced by Matt Peters and Matt Schellenberg (a.k.a. members of indie-pop squad Royal Canoe who produce under the Deadmen moniker), Make A Scene weds rich lyrical themes to wildly accessible songs such as the propulsive “Confetti,” which occupied the Top 20 of CBC Radio 2’s national chart for an impressive eight weeks, building on previous airplay Sweet Alibi enjoyed on satellite and terrestrial radio. Bassist Alasdair Dunlop and drummer Sandy Fernandez round out the acclaimed Western Canadian Music Award winners, whose Make A Scene album scored 2022’s Roots Duo/Group Recording of the Year. Watch for Sweet Alibi on tour in 2023 and beyond.
