Critically acclaimed artists and sisters Shelby Lynne & Allison Moorer include the State Theatre on a national tour in support of their highly-anticipated release Not Dark Yet, produced by Teddy Thompson, which will be released on August 18th.
Raised in rural Alabama, Shelby Lynne & Allison Moorer sang together from the time they could speak. Though their career paths have gone in separate directions, music has been the only language they needed to communicate and connect with each other. This is the first time that Shelby Lynne & Allison Moorer have collaborated on an album; Not Dark Yet is an extraordinary debut of their transcendent musical bond.
On Not Dark Yet the sisters wrap their soulful familial harmonies around an eclectic collection of songs by writers ranging from the Louvin Brothers, Nick Cave, Kurt Cobain, to Jessie Colter. With 24 albums between them, Shelby and Allison wrap their arms around the past, plant their feet in the present, and nod toward what’s around the bend with a co-written Is It Too Much, to close out the ten-song set.
Not Dark Yet is not a duet record. It is no ordinary collaboration. It is not a creation, but rather a celebration of something that has always been, two voices becoming one and finding home within each other.
