SHELBY LYNNE 
Shelby Lynne 
(Thirty Tiger Records)

Twenty years ago, Shelby Lynne released her hugely successful landmark album, I Am Shelby Lynne, which fused Americana roots music with a soulful R&B sound. Lynne’s eponymous new offering, Shelby Lynne, brings together those same musical elements, resulting in her most personal work yet.

There’s a whole lotta feeling going on in every track of this collection. Two of the songs, "Revolving Broken Heart" and "Love Is Coming," are featured in the 2020 film When We Kill The Creators, which Lynne also stars in. There’s also the torchy heartache of "Strange Things," blues ballad "Weather," and the upbeat groove of "Don’t Even Believe In Love." The musical arrangements are kept simple and sparse, showcasing Lynne’s vocals, which range from soft and ethereal to deep and soaring. Shelby Lynne demonstrates that Lynne is once again in touch with her blue-eyed, soulful self, and the results are glorious.
