Emily Barker Upcoming In-stores

To celebrate the release of her new album, Sweet Kind of Blue (19 May), Emily Barker will be performing a host of in-stores around the country this month and into June (see below).

The new album was recorded at Sam Phillips Recording Service in Memphis with Grammy winning producer Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price) and an all-star cast of Memphis session players. Sweet Kind of Blue is her first full studio album since 2013’s critically lauded Dear River and marks a new sound for Barker as she returns to the soul and blues influences that first inspired her to become a songwriter and musician.
