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. 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. For fifty years, 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.

Produced by Steve Berlin (Los Lobos) and recorded in Texas and Louisiana, SHINE BRIGHT contains twelve songs (including nine originals). They range from the title track’s rousing appeal for public and private acts of courage to the humorous advice of Life Of The Party to the upbeat call to action of Pots And Pans to the poignantly optimistic World Full Of Love. Throughout the album, the intensity of Ball’s conviction never wavers while, simultaneously, the fun never stops. “It is a ridiculously hopeful, cheerful record,” Marcia says, in light of some of the album’s more serious subject matter. The secret, according to Ball, “is to set the political songs to a good dance beat.”
