UK fans fell for Courtney’s breakthrough album Honest Life last year, when as the BBC put it, she became an “overnight success” after 10 years trying to break into the business. UK media such as The Guardian, Daily Telegraph and Sunday Times compared her music to the work of classic artists such as Guy Clark, John Prine, Joni Mitchell, Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt and Glen Campbell alongside modern references such as Laura Marling and Julie Byrne. The album became one of the biggest breakthrough records of 2017 in the UK, with 4-5 star reviews from publications including Daily Telegraph, Uncut, Mojo and Q Magazine, as well as reaching #1 on the Official U.K. Americana Chart Independent Album Breakers Chart. In April 2017, Andrews made her debut on the BBC’s legendary “Later…With Jools Holland” programme.
Barry says: A beautiful mix of deep Americana, new country and the forward thrust of todays melodic indie, Courtney Marie Andrews has not failed to impress yet, and 'May Your Kindness...' is no different. Stunning.
