Courtney Marie Andrews

Andrews has been described as the “finest singer-song writer in America”

That is quite some claim but after seeing her new music video for Kindness of Strangers, from her upcoming album May Your Kindness Remain, we have to agree.

Andrews’s video perfectly displays her fantastic mix of country, folk and modern indie style. The video itself was filmed using a 35mm lens and was shot on super 8 film. This reflects her classic vocals while showcasing her heartfelt and emotional performance.

Andrews admits that the song was written “directly after some legendary musicians took their own life”. Andrews was not shy to tackle such a highly emotive subject matter and with a voice like hers, she delivers the message perfectly without being crass about it.

Kindness of Strangers is the 8th song on Andrews up coming album. The album has already received high praise from several respected music critics including Daily Telegraph writer Neil McCormick who gave the introductory quote to this article. If that’s not enough to prove to you that this album is going to be big, it has also received support from BBC Music, NME and Wonderland just to name a few.

Living the American dream

From being a backing singer for Jimmy Eat World, to a star in her own right. Her album is not only fantastically written and performed; it has also been produced by Mark Howard who has worked with many other legends such as Bob Dylan, U2 and Marianne Faithful. With so much talent behind this album, her fans are eagerly waiting to see if she can reach success of her last album Honest Life. That achieved 4-5 star ratings from many big names in the UK Music press and we at On The Scene are on the edge of our seats waiting from the album to drop.

Thankfully, the wait is short as the album is released on the 23rd March on Loose. For those of you who are eager beavers you can also pre-order the album here. Below are Andrews’ UK tour dates:
