- Broken Arrow artist SHIRLEY GRIMES releases her 7th album today entitled Lovesongs. The album is a very personal, warm collection of songs that continues the path homeward to her Irish roots that she began on her previous release, 2011's The Long Road Home.
- "Lovesongs is a title that can be easily misinterpreted. But I have faith that it won′t be. These songs are not that sentimental love that is found on greeting cards, but it is about something deeper, truthful - something I have experienced most intensely in recent years: the love of my children, my partner, my friends, my past ... my life ".
Drummer Samuel Baur expresses it perfectly from when he states: "With the previous album we came home. Now we begin to build a house on the foundation we have laid the last time."
Lovesongs is currently available in CD format only, and will release for digital downloading on St. Patrick's Day, March 17. Look for the single "Homecoming" to also be released on March 17. A 30-date European tour begins February 13 in Munchenbuchsee, Bern, Switzerland.
