Since her debut in 2007, Shannon Wurst has firmly established herself at the intersection of everyman folk and Americana rooted in the traditions of Kasey Chambers, Alison Krauss and Dolly Parton.
A 2011 review by Jivewired described Wurst’s sound as that of “backpack‐wearing broken‐heart balladry” with “a bittersweet honesty that reads like a musical diary” cut by a sense of “wide‐eyed optimism infused with a charming levity.” By turns plaintive and playful, her songs wade into the deep waters of lost love, winding rivers and small‐town gossip.
Recent live performances by Wurst include appearances at the Eureka Springs Bluegrass Festival, South by Southwest, the Kerrville Folk Festival and The Palace Theatre. Her fourth solo album, Lionheart Love, will be released in January 2013.
