On top of garnering praise from Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone Country and Paste Magazine, Shires won the Americana Music Associations’ Emerging Artist Of The Year award in 2016. A quick listen to her music will explain why.
In the age of over-production and autotune, Shires manages to harness the rustic essence of Americana while wrapping it with enough pop textures to feel modern yet easily accessible.
