COURTNEY MARIE ANDREWS

RELEASES NEW SINGLE “HEART AND MIND”

ON TOUR NOW

NOMINATED FOR “EMERGING ARTIST OF THE YEAR” AT 2018 AMERICANA AWARDS

Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews is in the midst of an extensive coast-to-coast USA headline tour, following her 2018 Loose released album May Your Kindness Remain, and has released a powerful new single, “Heart and Mind”, today. Andrews says she ”wanted to write a song that embodies the importance of empowerment when you feel weakened by misrepresentation and/or sexual harassment.” Expanding on this she says that, “Even if our bodies have been misused or taken advantage of, we have the power to speak with our hearts and minds. The most powerful way to display that message is with simple conversations with those who love us. The mother/daughter bond is incredibly powerful, and I use that to embody protection and safety in this song and video.” Find the video for “Heart and Mind” HERE.

Ahead of her solo tour in the UK, Courtney will make appearances at AmericanaFest in Nashville, including a slot at the awards ceremony which will held in the prestigious Ryman Auditorium, where she is nominated for Emerging Artist of the Year. The nomination follows on from Courtney having been awarded the UK’s equivalent of the award in February of this year.

★★★★★
The Guardian

“Andrews may be the finest young singer-songwriter in America”
The Telegraph

“one of this year’s best albums”
Financial Times

“…a collection of songs, borne from interactions with others, that strives for healing and empathy in the midst of division and discord.”

NPR

“Courtney Marie Andrews is something special…

A punk-steeped folkie casting sideways glances at mainstream country à la Lucinda Williams…”

The Fader

“astonishingly beautiful…it’s a head-spinning discovery, a warm and gorgeous and fully formed piece of work. The kindness isn’t just in the lyrics. It’s in the way music like this can nourish you, can make your insides glow. An album like this can be a refuge.”

Stereogum

“…awash in church organ, lush harmonies, and a soaring, impassioned lead vocal from Andrews, whose twang quivers and shudders as she scales the song’s climactic final refrain.”

Rolling Stone

“…a rare blend of power and feeling that can bring you to your knees.”
