What to do in Oklahoma on April 27, 2019: Hear Amanda Shires and Carter Sampson at the Tower Theatre
Today's featured event:
Hear critically acclaimed singer, songwriter and violinist Amanda Shires at 8 tonight at the Tower Theatre, 425 NW 23.
As previously reported, “It’s all rock & roll – no golf!” is how Shires describes her fifth album, "To The Sunset," released in August. She’s borrowed a lyric from the effervescent track “Break Out the Champagne,” one of the 10 songs that comprise her powerful new recording.
The Texas-born road warrior, new mom and recently minted master of fine arts in creative writing has mined a range of musical influences to reveal an Amanda Shires many didn’t know existed: Distorted electric guitars, effects pedals, swirling keys and synths and rocking rhythms that suit Shires’ visceral songcraft and lilting soprano.
