Courtney Marie Andrews Plays Early on Monday at Mercury Lounge

May 5th, 2017

Talented singer-songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews began playing guitar and writing her own original songs while just a teenager in Phoenix, and she began performing live before graduating high school. Soon enough Andrews (above, performing “Table for One” live in studio for KEXP FM) became a backup singer and session guitarist for numerous artists, including the likes of Damien Jurado and Jimmy Eat World. But thanks to her own work, combining country, folk and pop, she’s earned the reputation of a songwriter’s songwriter. Andrews’ most recent release, Honest Life (stream it below)—which she considers a coming-of-age record—came out last year. It’s “an album at once elegant and deeply moving,” said Paste in a review comparing her to Emmylou Harris and Neko Case. “They’re excellent songs, expertly written, but Andrews’ voice is what makes them unforgettable.” Experience that voice live when Courtney Marie Andrews plays the early show on Monday night at Mercury Lounge.
