“An absolutely perfect little gem of an album… every song here sparkles… … a truly substantial talent”
★★★★★
THE DAILY TELEGRAPH

“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.”
THE SUNDAY TIMES

“In three and a half minutes, it articulated what I had spent 18 months trying to say”
LAURA BARTON/ THE GUARDIAN

“With her “coming of age album” the 26-year-old from Arizona stops being a well kept secret and makes a real breakthrough”

Rising Indie-Country-Americana singer-songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews today announced the release of her new video for single ‘Put The Fire Out,’ a road worn track which has significantly connected with UK fans and media. With critical support from esteemed music writers such as Laura Barton who stated; “In three and a half minutes, it articulated what I had spent 18 months trying to say”, in a personal piece she wrote for The Guardian and Spotify, who included it in their prestigious ‘New Music Friday’ playlist – the ‘Put The Fire Out’ video is soon to set the internet ablaze.

Discussing the video, which sees Courtney driving an RV through America, Courtney stated, “This old RV is the biggest piece of work that’s ever come into my possession, but also the most fun when we can get it to run. Put the Fire Out is a tune about getting back to ones you know and love after spending so much of your time on the road. By the end of the video I get there, but it takes a long drive.”

Courtney is fast becoming one of the most talked about artists in recent years in the UK after critically acclaimed album ‘Honest Life’ recently released on Loose, topped the UK Americana chart and was the number one selling album the week of the Americana Music Association UK’s annual Conference & Awards. She also has sold out her headline dates around UK including The Social in London on March 6th and quickly attracted the attention of media outlets including: The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph, The Sunday Times, The Evening Standard, The Independent, Q, Mojo, Line Of Best Fit, Clash, Gold Flake Paint and The Four Oh Five, alongside BBC 6 Music lending early support – ensuring Courtney is set to become one of the success stories of 2017 here in the UK.

Courtney will return to the UK for a performance at End Of The Road Festival and a solo show at Bush Hall Shepherds Bush on 4 September. For more information please visit: https://www.courtneymarieandrews.com
oing through a major heartbreak. I started growing homesick for America and the comfort of family and friends. That’s where I wrote the first songs for Honest Life. It was a giant hurdle in my life, my first true growing pains as a woman. That’s why I feel this record is a coming of age album. A common thread that runs through the songs is a great desire to fit somewhere, when nowhere fits – and wanting to get back home to the people I know and love. Once I got back to the USA I started to work at a small town bar. At the bar I felt I could truly empathize with the stories and lives of the people there. I wrote the other half of the songs about coming home and feeling a sense of belonging again. A lot of the stories at that bar definitely ran parallel with my own, even though our lives were so different. I was the “musician girl”. They were farmers, construction workers, plumbers, waitresses, and cashiers. But, no matter how different, I felt we were all trying to live our most honest life.”

True to her own vision, Andrews produced the resulting album herself and recorded it at Litho Studios in Seattle with recording engineer Floyd Reitsma, whose recent credits include Noah Gundersen and Pearl Jam.
