“a tremendously gifted songwriter”
VINYL ME, PLEASE
“Gripping folk-country confessionals”
“the best songwriter you’ve never heard of – She writes with such empathy and insight that she gives Lucinda a run for her money.”
“Andrews melds dovetailing, Joni Mitchell-like melodies with pin-sharp lyrics that recall the pre-didactic Laura Marling, over a country sound bed of keening pedal steel and cascading piano. It makes for a stunning combination.”
“excellent songs, expertly written, but Andrews’ voice is what makes them unforgettable – elegant and deeply moving”
“one of the best songwriting performances you can find in the modern era.” 9/10
SAVING COUNTRY MUSIC
“one of the brightest things to have emerged during a challenging year – stunning”
“a tremendous song collection”
AMERICAN STANDARD TIME

THE BLUEGRASS SITUATION

“This looks like the point where she stops being a well kept secret and makes a real breakthrough”
LONDON EVENING STANDARD
“a singer who delivers truths from the heart and takes her listeners on a journey that they will never wish to forget” ★★★★★
