 Winnipeg, Manitoba, CAN

Since their debut, Sweet Alibi has been captivating audiences with their alluring blend of soulful melody and folk/pop tradition. Playful sense of lyricism set to powerful vocal harmony backed by danceable rhythms set the stage for a performance which is up front and personal and compelling.


Drawing influence from a vast array of musical references, The Sweet Alibi apply a quirky pop sensibility to an eclectic set. Songs range in mood from hauntingly provocative ballads to left of centre takes on everything from Country to old school RnB. Backing their vocals with electric guitars, banjos, hand percussion, ukuleles, upright bass, kazoos and whatever else they can get their hands on, The Sweet Alibi compliment a diverse set with an equally eclectic instrumentation.

Comprised of three core members (Jessica Rae Ayre, Amber Neilson, and Michelle Anderson), and backed by an array of Winnipegs finest musicians, the group performs steadily both as a stripped down trio and with a fully fleshed out rhythm section. The band has shared the stage with many of Manitobas folk/roots community and have performed everywhere from intimate coffee houses and mainstay clubs to outdoor concert series and festivals (including a 09 appearance at The Winnipeg Folk Festival). Currently, The Sweet Alibi are in pre-production with Juno award winning producer Mitch Dorge on what promises to be a highly anticipated debut album.


Debut album soon to be released in the new year of 2011.
