Courtney Marie Andrews: May Your Kindness Remain (CD)
(Fat Possum Records) - May Your Kindness Remain is Courtney's
highly anticipated fourth album and the follow-up to Andrews'
breakthrough album, Honest Life. Produced by Mark Howard (Lucinda
Williams, Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, Tom Waits), the album was recorded
over eight days at a rented house-turned-studio in Los Angeles, CA. In
addition to Andrews on vocals and electric/acoustic guitar, the album
features Dillon Warnek (electric guitar), Daniel Walter (organ,
Wurlitzer, accordion), Charles Wicklander (piano, Wurlitzer), William
Mapp (drums, percussion), Alex Sabel (bass) and C.C. White (background
Of the album and the inspiration behind it's ten songs,
Andrews comments, 'The people that I've met on the road these past few
years got me thinking about my childhood, and the people around me that
I've known, and the stories that come from my family. It became clear
how many people are struggling through the same issues. People are
constantly chasing that bigger life. A lot of people are poor in
America-and because of those unattainable goals, they're also mentally
unstable, or sad, or depressed or unfulfilled. A lot of people-myself
included at some point in my life-are loving somebody through this.
That's sort of the theme of the record: coming to terms with depression
and the reality of the world we're living in.'
