Brooklyn Live | Courtney Marie Andrews

Hyllade Courtney Marie Andrews har turnerat som musiker sedan hon lämnade hemmet i Arizona vid 16 års ålder.

Tidigare har man främst kunnat se henne som gitarrist och körsångare tillsammans med andra artister, bland annat som del av Sverigebekantingen Damien Jurados band the Heavy Light under 2016. 

När nya soloalbumet 'Honest Life' kom ut under hösten i USA så lät jämförelserna med storheter som Joni Mitchell och Linda Ronstadt inte vänta på sig. Skivan letade sig även direkt in på ett större antal årsbästa-listor (American Songwriter, Rolling Stone, NPR, Stereogum, osv). 20 januari släpptes albumet i Europa via utmärkta Loose Music (Sturgill Simpson, Justin Townes Earle, The Handsome Family etc) och har även här spåtts bli nästa stora utropstecken på Americanascenen. 

”Honest Life” är en oerhört känslig och välkomponerad samling sånger om uppbrott som genom sitt luftiga country-anslag andas väldigt mycket 70-talets Laurel Canyon. En oerhört stark debut, som redan nu tippas hamna högt upp när vi summerar 2017.

Om ni har tid, läs gärna igen alla hyllande kommentarer världen runt:

“an absolutely perfect little gem of an album… every song here sparkles… the poetic economy of her lyrics is right up there with such masters of the country vignette as Guy Clark and John Prine… a truly substantial talent”
★★★★★
THE DAILY TELEGRAPH

“Joni Mitchell is the logical comparison to the soft howl and deep-Canyon vibrato of her vocals, but there are echoes of the Indigo Girls and even Ryan Adams’ Gold too since her songs are anchored by smart lyricism that seems more like an intimate conversation than a fiery confessional.”

#6 – 20 BEST COUNTRY ALBUMS OF THE YEAR
STEREOGUM

“Andrews melds dovetailing, Joni Mitchell-like melodies with pin-sharp lyrics that recall the pre-didactic Laura Marling, over a country sound bed of keening pedal steel and cascading piano. It makes for a stunning combination.”

WRITERS’ FAVOURITE MUSIC MOMENTS OF 2016, LAURA BARTON THE GUARDIAN

“rich, understated and resonant, [Honest Life] reveals Andrews as a gifted songsmith who can easily conjure longing and regret – classic country territory – but leavens that ache with humour, a little wisdom and a sure feel for melody.”
★★★★

★★★★
LONDON EVENING STANDARD

“With a folk grounding and alternative edge, the collection is reminiscent of some of the greatest recording artists known. With a little bit of Bob Dylan, a hint of Joni Mitchell, a touch of Emmylou Harris and a drop of Dolly Parton, Courtney Marie Andrews is a singer who delivers truths from the heart and takes her listeners on a journey that they will never wish to forget.”
★★★★★
MUSIC-NEWS

★★★★
THE TIMES

“Well written with beautiful vocals and insightful lyrics, Andrews has produced an outstanding piece of work which is hard to pick fault with. Miss this album at your own peril.”
★★★★
GIGSOUP

“It takes a skilful writer not to retread familiar imagery and an accomplished singer to make it sound fresh and relevant. These qualities are rare but not unique, hence comparisons will inevitably be drawn with Joni Mitchell, Carole King and Joan Baez with whom she shares a high, clear voice and an ability to sound exposed yet strong.”
★★★★
R2 MAGAZINE

“the lyricism is enchanting from the outset. And in all truthfulness, enchanting is a pretty good word to describe the whole album. Intimate. Heart-wrenching. Harmonious yet haunting.”
