Sweet Alibi will release their third album at the West End Cultural Centre on Nov. 20, 2015.
Entitled, Walking in the Dark, the CD takes you on an emotional pilgrimage, guided by Sweet Alibi‘s Jess Rae Ayre, Amber Quesnel and Michelle Anderson.
It marks the third full-length recording released by this award-winning group from Winnipeg.
Sweet Alibi has garnered multiple awards and nominations in the past few years from the Canadian Folk Music Awards and Western Canadian Music Awards for its previous CD, We’ve Got To.
Heavily anticipated by fans and music industry types across North America, the tracks on the new CD capture raw emotion, allowing listeners to experience life’s journey through intimate, melody driven songs.
The lyrics are crafted with a genuine, yet empowering display of vulnerability and honesty.
For example, the first single/video, Showing You, is about proving commitment in a relationship repeatedly, often in difficult circumstances.
Each of the remaining songs also embrace personal experiences from each member, including topics from hitchhiking trips to the loss of loved ones.

“When one of us has an idea, it is an inimitable process that gets the song from paper to what our fans hear on the CD,” explains Amber Quesnel.
“The tracks on this album are moody, they come from our hearts, experiences we have lived through and they cover several topics. That’s where our producer comes in and brings our sound together,” she adds.
Juno winning producer Murray Pulver (The Bros. Landreth, Crash Test Dummies) lends his talent to bring together the emotion, powerhouse vocals and industrious instrumental work.

Doors open at 7:15 p.m. and tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.
