The Bluegrass Situation unveiled the new video for Lauren Shera’s “The Crashing Sea.” You can view the post here and on via You Tube here. Shera recently added new fall tour dates with Mikaela Davis to follow her shows with the Jackie Greene Band in September. Please see full list of tour dates below.

During a recent stop in Chicago, Shera recorded several tracks from her new album Gold and Rust, out now on DigSin, with Daytrotter. Listen to the session featuring “Light and Dust” here and see NPR Music’s First Watch premiere of the video here. Since the release of the album, Shera has garnered more than 3 million plays on Spotify.

Shera, who moved to Nashville the day after the final recording session for Gold and Rust, wrote the album as a musical farewell to her home state of California. “Making the record and finishing it, knowing that I was about to be leaving, inspired some of the songs,” explains Shera. The album was recorded in Santa Cruz by Andy Zenczak, who also produced Shera’s previous two releases, In My Bones (2006) and Once I Was a Bird (2010).
