Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter/violinist Amanda Shires will release her highly anticipated fifth album To The Sunset on August 3rd via Silver Knife/Thirty Tigers. To The Sunset is Shires’ second album with Grammy award-winning producer Dave Cobb and represents an adventurous move with an edgier sound and attitude. Shires continues to push herself artistically and sonically, but the spotlight always shines brightly on her unmistakable songwriting style and emotive and distinctive vocals.

To The Sunset is a compelling collection of narratives often told from a female perspective. The themes range from grappling with self-esteem in “Mirror, Mirror” to mental illness and addiction in standout track “Wasn’t I Paying Attention?” and the power of a changed perspective with a dash of her signature wit in “Break Out The Champagne.” Shires has a penchant for delivering her stories in ways that are intelligent and poetic yet thoughtful and warm, feeling as if coming from a good friend. One of the boldest and most honest traits about Amanda Shires is her fearless way of approaching subjects and plots within her songs. Recorded at RCA Studio A, Shires is joined on To The Sunset by special guests including Jason Isbell (guitar), Dave Cobb (bass) Peter Levin (keys), and Jerry Pentecost (drums).

To The Sunset is the follow up to Shires’ critically acclaimed My Piece Of Land, which was released in 2016. My Piece Of Land became her most acclaimed album to date garnering high praise that included NPR, Associated Press, Rolling Stone Country, Entertainment Weekly, Garden & Gun, Texas Monthly and the cover of the Nashville Scene. Capping off a banner year in 2016, Shires was also the recipient of the Americana Music Association’s Emerging Artist Of The Year Award and made her solo national TV debut on Austin City Limits.

To The Sunset represents an extension of artistic growth for Amanda Shires who continues to grow and challenge herself as an artist and songwriter.
