About the event
From her days fronting lauded Americana group, the Everbodyfields, to her successful solo career as a writer and performer, Jill Andrews’ music has taken her far from her East Tennessee home. She has collaborated and shared the stage with countless celebrated artists including the Avett Brothers, Langhorne Slim, Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors, and the Secret Sisters, and her music has been featured on Grey’s Anatomy, The Good Wife, Nashville, Wynonna Earp and This Is Us.
Featuring emotional melodies, intimate storytelling, and vocals that soar even at a whisper, Andrews’ third studio album, Thirties, is a deviation, it resists contemplating the big, loud questions of the world, and rather, invites listeners to look inward, keeping us closer to home than ever before. Along with a full-colour, hard-cover companion book, Thirties released in early 2020. During quarantine, Andrews’ combed through her songwriting catalog and dug up treasures she had written as far back as 2013.
She released both the Vultures and Ellen EPs in 2021, celebrating her darker side and folk song writing roots respectively.“Her voice [is] one of the most pristine in the game…Any which way it’s packaged, there’s a steady tenderness to everything Andrews does.” – Folk Alley “Expertly crafted songs…subtle hooks and gently layered instrumentation that recall the better aspects of the 70s Laurel Canyon scene.” – American Songwriter “Andrews’ melodies are sweet and easy to digest even when the subject matter is anything but.” – No Depression “It’s nearly impossible to not nod along to Andrews’ ballads, feeling oddly close to her and to yourself.” – Paste Magazine UPSTAIRS LOUNGE @ The Blue Lamp 7:30PM DOORS
