ANDREW COMBS DEBUTS NEW SINGLE AT ROLLING STONE COUNTRY

FALL TOUR DATES CONFIRMED WITH KACEY MUSGRAVES, LEE ANN WOMACK, ETC.

NEW ALBUM ALL THESE DREAMS PRAISED BY NPR MUSIC, ROLLING STONE, ROLLING STONE COUNTRY, THE BOSTON GLOBE, MOJO, ETC.


Andrew Combs’ new single, “Part Time Lovers (Full Time Fools)” premiered yesterday at Rolling Stone Country and can now be heard/shared via SoundCloud. Of the track, the site asserts, “…the song blends jangly piano and steel guitar riffs with a wistful folk refrain…Combs has always found himself drawn to the narrative style of Guy Clark, spinning lines that are as brutally honest as they are evocative.” The previously unreleased song will be available on iTunes September 4.

The new single culminates a breakout year for Combs following the release of his acclaimed full-length album, All These Dreams (Coin Records/Thirty Tigers). In celebration of the music, Combs will tour throughout this fall, including a performance supporting Kacey Musgraves at the historic Ryman Auditorium on September 23 as well as a series of dates with Lee Ann Womack. See below for complete details.

RECENT ACCLAIM FOR ANDREW COMBS AND ALL THESE DREAMS:

“…an elegant singer and songwriter, spinning gold from tales about heartache and redemption and spirituality—all with a tasteful patina of pop and soul.” —Boston Globe, “10 bands and solo artists to watch in 2015”

“Because he’s like a one-man Traveling Willburys.” —Esquire, Best Bands SXSW 2015

“Combs’s voice is so evocative on All These Dreams, and the settings he creates with his collaborators…are so rich, it’s a damn good thing his lyrics live up to the presentation. This might be the Americana album of 2015.” —NPR Music, “Musicians You’ll Tell Your Friends About In 2015”

“The arrangements on All These Dreams have a retro quality, evoking 1970s Laurel Canyon and 1980s Austin as well as 1960s Music Row. With the singer’s sagebrush-rough but always carefully calibrated vocals at the center, the album works on one level as a history of the troubadour figure from the classic-rock era onward, with Combs as charming antihero.” —NPR Music

“…the songs on All These Dreams luxuriate in their arrangements, swept along by gossamer strings and silky backing vocals.” —MOJO

“Four Singer-Songwriters You Need To Know in 2015” —Rolling Stone

“…a shimmering, Orbison-like arrangement.” —Rolling Stone Country

“…his sophomore LP, All These Dreams, made it clear he’s more than just a killer, honey-cooled voice with a knack for turn-of-phrase—it’s an expertly-crafted, layered work that pulls not just from country but little licks of James Taylor, Paul Simon and early Seventies Dylan. Shuffling, smooth and soulful.” —Rolling Stone Country, “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know: Spring 2015”

“…built in the spirit of an era where lush orchestrals and strong narrative songcraft were the keys to the castle…layered, evocative arrangements over lyrics much more interested in telling stories than treating music as a confessional booth. Holding it all together is Combs' stellar, gravelly-soul vocal, which can be perfectly delicate on songs like ‘Strange Bird’ or as worn as a tarnished heart on ‘Month of Bad Habits.” —Rolling Stone Country, “30 Great Country Albums of 2015 You Probably Didn't Hear”

“Combs’ album All These Dreams is a gem, blending a ‘70s troubadour’s gentleness with Roy Orbison-inspired melodies.” —USA Today

“Drawing comparisons to the likes of Kris Kristofferson and early Ryan Adams, Mr. Combs is an adept writer, his lines catching small, resonant details and he possesses a strong yet understated voice that carries them across. His excellent second album, All These Dreams, shows great promise.” —The Wall Street Journal
