The band features lead vocalist Shires on violin and tenor guitar, Paul Griffith on drums, Peter Levin on keys, Seth Plemmons and Zach Setchfield on guitars and Macey Taylor on bass.

Shires is a part of acclaimed country music supergroup The Highwomen, alongside Brandi CarlileNatalie Hemby and Maren Morris. The collective’s critically acclaimed self-titled album debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, #10 on the all-genre Billboard 200 and #4 on Billboard’s Top Current Albums chart with over 34,000 equivalent units sold. Produced by GRAMMY Award-winning producer Dave Cobb, the album was released last fall via Low Country Sound/Elektra Records and continues to receive overwhelming critical praise.

In 2018, Shires released her fifth album, To The Sunset. The Texas-born road warrior, new mom, and minted MFA in creative writing 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 syncopated beats certainly suit Shires’ visceral songcraft and lilting soprano.

She has been on tour with her band and her husband Jason Isbell‘s 400 Unit and won the Americana Association‘s 2017 Emerging Artist award – all while nurturing a toddler.

Rolling Stone proclaims, “Being mediocre was never an option for Amanda Shires.”
