Courtney Marie Andrews on Tour

Americana runs through the core of singer/songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews. Her unique and genre-blending music combines elements of alternative folk, indie-rock and country. Andrews is traveling throughout the United States and making stops in Canada and the United Kingdom on her 2022 tour. Her muse-like voice combined with folksy instrumentals and personal yet relatable lyrics create a show-stopping live performance. Debuting in 2008 with her album Urban Myths, Andrews has continued to release an onslaught of popular albums, including No One's Slate Is Clean (2010), On My Page (2013), Leuven Letters (2014), Honest Life (2016), Heart And Mind (2018), May Your Kindness Remain (2019), Old Flowers (2020), and Loose Future (2022).

Born in Phoenix, Arizona in 1990, Andrews began writing her own lyrics in her teens. As a teenager she traveled up and down the West Coast, performing on beach boardwalks, college campuses and any public space that would have her. Soon after, she moved to New York City where she met Jim Adkins from Jimmy Eat World who invited her to sing on multiple tracks on their album Invented. Andrews eventually toured with Jimmy Eat World in 2011 and 2012. After her 2012 tour, Andrews received offers from a number of groups and ended up singing backup for more than 40 different artists. The blooming musician had a standout year in 2016 as  her album Honest Life received a tremendous amount of critically acclaimed success. Honest Life was ranked No. 36 on Rolling Stone's Best Country Albums of 2016 as well as No. 6 on Stereogum's list of the 20 Best Country Albums Of 2016. It also ranked at No. 10 on NPR's Folk Alley's 10 Favorite Albums Of 2016. Continuing her success, Andrews won the International Artist of the Year award at the 2018 UK Americana Awards and her 2020 album, Old Flowers, was nominated for Best Americana Album at the 2020 Grammy Awards. Courtney Marie Andrews' success continues to rise in the Americana music sphere with more than 430,000 monthly listeners on Spotify, with "If I Told," off her album, Old Flowers, leading the pack with more than 7.6 million streams.
