Recently, Seattle songwriter Shelby Earl, fresh off releasing her new album, Swift Arrows, stopped by KEXP for a live in-studio to play four new tracks off the record. Produced by Seattle folk hero Damien Jurado, Swift Arrows is a mix of piano ballads and guitar rock in the lineage of Seattle songwriter Jesse Sykes. “I knew she wrote incredible songs,” said Jurado about his decision to work with her, adding that she’s one of the few people who make him think, “I wish I wrote that.” Morning Show host John Richards was equally smitten by this “beloved” performer and had nothing but praise for Shelby, whose second studio album is fast gaining critical acclaim. Watch her KEXP performance here:
