Shannon Labrie: Local Artist of the Week


The latest from Shannon Labrie, Firewalker, has been on repeat around the Lightning 100 home offices this week. Its upbeat cadence is the perfect soundtrack for your quarantine, providing much needed levity whether you’re out for a stroll or throwing a living room dance party.

Labrie is truly an artist’s artist – the Nashville local recorded this single straight to tape with a live band. No click-track necessary. That’s the down to earth spirit that landed her opening stints with ZZ Ward and Robert Randolph and the Family Band. She walks the line between alt country and rock and roll in a way that encapsulates the best of each genre.

Although studio closures have delayed the recording of the rest of Labrie’s planned full-length album, Firewalker is an ear worm that will hold us over for the next couple months. Tune into Lightning 100 at 100.1FM or all week long to hear Firewalker featured in rotation as part of our Local Artist of the Week program!
