About Sweet Alibi
Since their debut in the spring of 2009, Sweet Alibi has been captivating audiences with an alluring blend of soulful melody and roots/folk tradition.
Their playful sense of lyricism set to powerful vocal harmony sets the stage for a performance that is up front and personal, and instinctively compelling.
Drawing influence from a vast array of musical references, Sweet Alibi applies a quirky pop sensibility to an eclectic set.
Songs range in mood from hauntingly provocative ballads to left of center takes on everything from country and soul to old time jazz.
Backing their vocals with electric guitars, banjos, hand percussion, ukuleles, upright bass, and whatever else they can get their hands on, Sweet Alibi compliment a diverse set with an equally eclectic instrumentation.
Comprised of three core members (Jessica Rae Ayre, Amber Nielsen, and Michelle Anderson), and backed by an array of Winnipeg’s finest musicians, the group performs steadily both as a stripped down trio and with a fully fleshed out rhythm section.
The band has performed everywhere from intimate coffee houses and mainstay clubs to outdoor concert series and festivals.
Their highly anticipated debut album Sweet Alibi was produced by Juno Award-winner Mitch Dorge.
They are currently touring the album across Canada, which includes showcasing at the Ontario Council of Folk Festival (OCFF) conference in Mississauga, Ontario, in October.
