ANDREW COMBS – ” Foolin “

When the 28-year-old Texas native Andrew Combs first surfaced in Nashville a few years ago, his highly melodic, moody songs earned him some lofty comparisons: People talked about Townes Van Zandt and Mickey Newbury. On his second album, Combs honors those heroes and the moment of their flowering, when country craftsmanship met folk storytelling and the sweet flash of post-Gram Parsons pastoral rock. Andrew Combs’s voice is so evocative on “All These Dreams”, and the settings he creates with his collaborators (led by the outstanding guitar duo, Steelism) are so rich, it’s a damn good thing his lyrics live up to the presentation. This might be the Americana album of 2015.
