Product description

Product Description

After a decade spent at the height of the music industry, touring solo and with large pop bands, Courtney Marie Andrews has realised her desire for a place to come home to. She found that in a small rural town in the deep forests of Washington. There, she posted up at a local bar, slinging drinks, basking in the simplicity and reflection it allowed. She has emerged with a new fire on 'Honest Life', melding indie-folk and Americana with a rebellious country flavour reminiscent of her Southwestern roots. Honest Life is the culmination of Andrews' life on the road, absorbing the stories, traditions and heartbreaks along the way. The songs on Honest Life touch on personal coming-of-age stories 'Rookie Dreaming', the stunning beauty of resiliency 'How Quickly Your Heart Mends', take-no-shit self-determination anthems 'Irene', and thoughts on how to accept emotions like loneliness and vulnerability in your life 'Table for One'. Andrews' heart-wrenching songwriting and crystal-clear vocal style are as captivating as they are invigorating. It's no wonder Ryan Adams called Andrews "a phenomenal songwriter". True to her own vision, Andrews produced the entire record herself and recorded it at Litho Studios in Seattle with recording engineer Floyd Reitsma, whose recent credits include Noah Gundersen and Pearl Jam.

Rookie Dreaming is neat opener, it displays her clean and clear vocals brilliantly ... it's a cool tune with hint of a back story in the lyric ... then onto Not the End in which Courtney puts a more country twang into the vocal ... two great songs to open an album.

And so it goes pretty much all the way through ... the title track Honest Life is a superb rendition of something that sounds genuinely autobiographical... Put the Fire Out gives the play list a lift ... just around track 8 when you are hoping the strength of the songs will last all way to the end ... and they do ... I thought I heard hint of the McGarrigles on one track ... and a bit of Regina Spektor influence on the last track ... but essentially it's all her own work.

I like Americana but I am currently also listening to Kings of Leon, The Vaccines, Elbow and Alt J ... this is the perfect companion to those albums ... I've had the CD for a couple weeks and played it every day ... when it's finished it's tempting to play it all over again.

It's not her first album but it feels like it's her breakthrough album ... I hope it is.

Brilliant album - but, is there something seriously wrong with the UK pressings ? On my second copy as the first was distorting. This copy seems worse. Has a strange pulsating scratchy sound in the background of some tracks. The album is ripped to FLAC and played on both a Linn Majik DSM and Naim Muso. Will return again, maybe third time lucky.

Album sounds perfect streamed from Tidal in FLAC quality

Brilliant CD.... I bought it from listening to the sample track. Her voice is haunting and resonates a depth of feelings. Her lyrics are thought provoking and capture new and lost emotions I agree with other listeners, every track a gem. No fillers on this, all superb. Have not stopped playing this since I bought it. I look forward to other materials in hopefully not the too distance future.
