Sheryl Crow has announced her first full-length, solo/multi-instrumental streaming concert performance. Sheryl Crow: The Songs And The Stories – A Live Solo Performance will take place on Friday, June 18 at her “little church,” the private, meditative space on her Nashville property. Crow has filled the location with antique Americana curiosities.
In the stream, the nine-time Grammy winner tells the stories behind her best-loved hits and equally admired catalog tracks. The performance is filmed in multi-camera high definition video by British-based livestream company Driift. Great pains have been taken to raise the broadcast beyond the realms of a regular streaming concert. In the performance, Crow alternates between instruments to present the songs in a new light, accentuated by Driift’s production. Watch a short preview below.
“Doing a solo show like this is challenging and exhilarating,” says Sheryl. “Presenting these songs in a new way is exciting for me – this is not a usual acoustic show, those can be great, but this is something different.
“I feel the beginnings of a renewal after the painful separation we’ve been through,” she goes on. “I have tremendous gratitude for it. I can’t wait for fans to hear and see this very special show.”
Driift are the company behind highly-praised online ticketed events for Nick Cave, Niall Horan, Laura Marling, Dermot Kennedy, Andrea Boccelli, Kylie Minogue, and James Bay. Sheryl Crow: The Songs And The Stories will only be accessible via ticket purchase. To heighten the atmosphere of a live event, there will be no access to replays.
