Western Canadian Music Award Winners, Sweet Alibi, have been captivating audiences across Canada. The Winnipeg-based folk/pop band infuses its signature harmonies with influences of everything from folk to country to soul, without a hint of shame. Sweet Alibi's Jess Rae Ayre, Amber Quesnel, and Michelle Anderson share personal experiences that are genuinely felt in song. Tom Power of CBC Radio 2 describes the band: "If Mumford and Sons and the Supremes had a love child, you would name it Sweet Alibi". Audiences have been raving nationwide about the band’s performances at Winnipeg Folk Fest, Juno Fest, Canada Day in Ottawa, and many concert series. Currently you can find the band touring material from their CFMA/WCMA nominated release We’ve Got To (produced by Rusty Matyas of Imaginary Cities) and from their latest release, Walking in the Dark (produced by Murray Pulver).
