Internationally celebrated singer-songwriter Shelby Earl will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Kay White Hall, showcasing her new album, “The Man Who Made Himself a Name.”

Earl’s distinctive voice has gained accolades from Rolling Stone to the Wall Street Journal. She’s been compared to Neko Case, Sharon Van Etten and Angel Olsen.

Earl has toured extensively, playing with outstanding musicians such as Loudon Wainwright, Rhett Miller and Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie, who spoke for many people when he said Earl had “the most heartbreakingly beautiful voice in Seattle.” Her new album includes production with a live rock band backing her powerhouse voice, and has been described as her best, deepest and most assured work to date.

Tickets are sold at VCA, Heron’s Nest Gallery and vashoncenterforthearts.org.
