In-Store Performance at CD Release Party at Louisiana Music Factory

Alligator Records has announced an April 20, 2018 release date for SHINE BRIGHT, the dynamic new album from Texas-born, Louisiana-raised pianist, songwriter and vocalist Marcia Ball.

Marcia Ball, the 2018 Texas State Musician Of The Year, has won worldwide fame and countless fans for her ability to ignite a full-scale roadhouse rhythm and blues party every time she takes the stage. Her rollicking Texas boogies, swampy New Orleans ballads and groove-laden Gulf Coast blues have made her a one-of-a-kind favorite with music lovers all over the world.

With SHINE BRIGHT, Ball set out to, in her words, “Make the best Marcia Ball record I could make.” In doing so, she has put together the most musically substantial, hopeful and uplifting set of songs of her five-decade career. Produced by Steve Berlin (Los Lobos) and recorded in Texas and Louisiana, Shine Bright contains twelve songs (including nine originals), ranging from the title track’s rousing appeal for public and private acts of courage to the upbeat call to action of Pots And Pans, a song inspired by renowned Texas political writer and humorist Molly Ivins. From the humorous advice of Life Of The Party to the poignantly optimistic World Full Of Love, the intensity of Ball’s conviction never wavers while, simultaneously, the fun never stops. Shine Bright is exactly the album Ball set out to make.

sound guy was horrible. vocals buried under sax and guitar. nothing like her recordings. I love Marcia Ball but she needs new sound guy.
Great performer! Tight band. SO good live!
Took in the 2nd shoe at Natalie’s....really impressed by the energy and fun Marcia Ball and her band brought to the show... it was a small venue in an area Marcia doesn’t stop too often but she rocked it and totally lived up to her title Queen of Swamp Boogie Blues... would highly recommend seeing Marcia Ball if she comes to a venue near you!! Big fun!!
