Gram Parsons - Biography

Imbued with Brandi Shearer’s smoky voice and classic, blues-infl ected
songwriting, Close to Dark is by turns languid and lively, an excursion into
dreamy worlds simmering with understated sexuality. The restrained
arrangements and deft production by Larry Klein (Madeleine Peyroux, Joni
Mitchell) add a delicious tension to the songs and compliment perfectly
Shearer’s less-is-more vocal style.
Shearer assembled well-known players from the Brooklyn roots music scene that
has coalesced around Norah Jones for these sessions and augmented the roster
with a cast of crack L.A. musicians.
Shearer’s artistic path has taken a winding route from her childhood home in
rural Oregon to the cabarets of Hungary and France to the Bay Area in 1998.
Shearer spent several years performing locally before putting together her own
band in 2003 to record her self-released Music of a Saturday Night in a single
day. An intense 4-hour recording session several months later led to her
sophomore disc, The Sycamore.
