Already catching the attention of UK media with previous release ‘All These Dreams’, including publications Mojo and The Line Of Best Fit, Canyons Of My Mind will no doubt be Andrew’s UK breakthrough with continued support from publications from BBC Radio 2 Bob Harris, Uncut, Line Of Best Fit and Spotify (New Music Friday), The Four Oh Five, Nashville Over Here and many more. The 11-song set was co-produced by Skylar Wilson (Justin Townes Earle, Caitlin Rose) & Jordan Lehning (Rodney Crowell, Caitlin Rose) and recorded at Battle Tapes Studio in East Nashville, TN and is some of Andrew’s strongest songwriting to date. The release has been critically celebrated states side, receiving strong support from publications including, NPR, American Songwriter and Paste Magazine.
“One of the most impressive singer/songwriters of recent years” THE LINE OF BEST FIT
A Dallas native now living near the same East Nashville airport immortalised in the opening sequence of Robert Altman’s country music odyssey, Andrew Combs is a singer, songwriter, guitarist, and heir to that 1975 film’s idea of the Nashville troubadour. Well established in the East Nashville singer-songwriter scene alongside friends and contemporary artists Aaron Lee Tasjan, Erin Rae, Caitlin Rose, Nikki Lane, Andrew and his fellow indie artists are creating an alternative Nashville music scene. One which is coexisting completely independently from the glitzy dizzying glamour of mainstream music institution Music Row, born in the dive bars of East Nashville – these young talented musicians are capturing the voice of an American generation. Andrew shows musical maturity on Canyons Of My Mind, tackling political issues on ‘Dirty Rain’, he expresses environmental concerns, commenting on the gentrification and the destruction of America’s industrial and agrarian Heartland. Elsewhere Andrews writes elegant love songs and mood pieces, amounting to a rounded and crafted piece of modern songwriting.
“Almost surgically skilful with a phrase and yet filled with human vulnerability” MOJO
