About Brandy Clark:
An 11x Grammy-nominee, CMA Award-winner and Tony-nominee, Brandy Clark is one of her generation’s most esteemed songwriters and musicians. In the midst of yet another landmark year, Clark released her acclaimed self-titled album, produced by 9x Grammy-winner Brandi Carlile, earlier this spring, which led Variety to call her “one of the great singer-songwriters of our day,” while Forbes describes the album as “an Americana Masterpiece.” Known for her powerful live shows, Clark will embark on an extensive headline tour this fall including stops in Chicago, Minneapolis, Nashville, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles among many others. In addition to her work as a solo artist, Clark has also written songs like “A Beautiful Noise,” the Grammy-nominated duet performed by Brandi Carlile and Alicia Keys, and Kacey Musgraves’ “Follow Your Arrow.” She also composed the music and lyrics for the new hit musical comedy, Shucked, alongside her longtime collaborator, Shane McAnally. With the show, Clark won Outstanding Music at the 67th Drama Desk Awards, while Shucked was also nominated for a total of nine Tony Awards this past year.
About Lori McKenna:
“One of the best songwriters working in any genre” (Associated Press), GRAMMY Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician Lori McKenna will release her anticipated new album, 1988, on July 21. Produced by GRAMMY Award-winning producer Dave Cobb, the record is named for the year McKenna married her husband and serves as a love letter to her family and lifelong friendships. In celebration of the new music, McKenna will tour through this summer with headline shows at Philadelphia’s World Café Live, New York’s City Winery, Nashville’s CMA Theater and Evanston’s Space among many others. In addition to her work as a solo artist, McKenna continues to enjoy tremendous success as a songwriter, having written songs for artists such as Taylor Swift and Chris Stapleton, Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, George Strait, Sheryl Crow, Carrie Underwood, Faith Hill and Reba McEntire. McKenna also co-wrote “Always Remember Us This Way,” which was featured in the Academy Award-winning 2018 film, A Star Is Born. In the past few years, McKenna has also won Best Country Song at GRAMMY Awards three times, Song of the Year at the CMA Awards twice and was the first female to ever win the ACM Awards’ Songwriter of the Year award.

This tune, “Distant Suns,” keeps up with its blurring, plastic-pulling video-game sounds, and swirling vocals throughout its mid-tempo four-minute + mélange. […]
