Asthmatic Kitty recording artist Shannon Stephens returns with her new album, Pull It Together, produced with help from Grammy-winning engineer Kory Kruckenberg. The album highlights an evolution for Stephens, a wife and mother who has chosen to spend the greater part of the last decade out of the spotlight. She writes with a new worldview and explores the Seattle blues while staying true to her indie folk/rock roots. Pull It Together features collaborations with musicians Jeff Fielder (Mark Lanegan), James McAlister (Sufjan Stevens, Pedro the Lion), Steve Moore (Laura Veirs), Bonnie Prince Billy, DM Stith, and Galen Disston.
Featured song: “Faces Like Ours”
Stephens’ latest album, Pull It Together, debuted in May.
