There’s a new generation of women burning down the Nashville music industry. Powerful voices like Margo Price and Nikki Lane have been rewriting the script, owning their own songs and vision. Now, add to this list Washington State Americana songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews. After a decade spent at the height of the music industry, touring solo and with large pop bands, she realized her desire for a place to come home to. She found that in a small rural town in the deep forests of Washington State. There, she posted up at a local bar, slinging drinks, basking in the simplicity and reflection it allowed. She has emerged in 2016 with a new fire on Honest Life, melding indie-folk and Americana with a rebellious country flavor reminiscent of her Southwestern roots.
“The first thing that strikes you about Courtney Marie Andrews’ music is her voice. Sweet, supple and strong, it’s a potent, powerful mix of Emmylou Harris, Tift Merritt, Linda Ronstadt and Linda Thompson.” – American Songwriter
“Andrews grasps her songs tightly. Her lyrics are considered and heartfelt, her vocal performances are clean and pure and the songs are produced and arranged with nuance and precision” – Exclaim 8/10 Review
