Courtney Marie Andrews performing live in the KEXP studio. Recorded September 7th, 2016.

Andrews is only 25 but has already spent almost a decade on the road as a professional musician, touring since she was 16, singing backing vocals for arena rock band Jimmy Eat World and travelling as lead guitarist for cult Americana star Damien Jurado.

She has also recorded five previous albums of poetic heart-on-her-sleeve sensitive singer-songwriting, so when she tells us “this ain’t no rookie dreaming” on the opening of her sixth release, you can genuinely sense the weight of experience in her voice. Her album “Honest Life” is full of songs of longing and regret, tinged by a belief in the redemptive possibilities of change and wrapped up in stories of everyday, hard-working lives. Classic country material, in other words.

Songs: How Quickly Your Heart Mends,  Irene,  Table For One,  Rookie Dreaming
