    Andrew Combs

    Americana

    Andrew Combs, a Dallas native now living near the same Nashville airport immortalized in the opening sequence of Robert Altman’s country music odyssey, is a singer, songwriter, guitarist, and heir to that 1975 film’s idea of the Nashville troubadour as a kind of musical monk. Here in the twenty-first century whorl of digital narcissism, where identity can feel like a 24/7 social media soft-shoe performance, Combs makes music that does battle with the unsubtle. Like the pioneering color photographer William Eggleston, he sees the everyday and the commonplace as the surest paths to transcendence, and he understands intuitively that what is most obvious is often studded with the sacred.

    On his EP, 5 Covers & A Song (New West Records), Combs showcases songs that have had an impact on him at different points in his life. Songs by The Strokes and Radiohead are a nostalgic look back at teenage self discovery, while Loudon Wainwright III’s “4 x 10” represents a more current perspective, reflecting on his life now as a husband and father.

    Alternative

    Born and raised in St. Louis, MO and now based in Seattle, Lizzie Weber began her journey with the release of her debut album in 2014 with local magazine Eleven dubbing her, “Your Favorite New Artist of 2014.” No Depression called Lizzie's debut “a confessional record, but one that is very well handled, never straying into the over-dramatic, but instead honing in on a sound which is personal, powerful, and, at times, perfect.”

    Soon after, Lizzie followed this with her collaboration with Grammy-award winning producer Sheldon Gomberg and her brother John Schranck Jr. on "Love Again” which explored and incorporated a variety of dynamics into her approach including the use of orchestral instruments inspired by the lush, Brian Wilson-era sound of the 70's.

    Seattle Weekly championed Lizzie's latest EP, cheering "...it takes a deft touch to craft aching odes to relationships’ ends while still maintaining a composed confidence devoid of melodrama. Seattle singer-songwriter Lizzie Weber pulls off the feat on her new 3-song EP, You."

    Lizzie has shared the stage with Mason Jennings , Roo Panes, Peter Bradley Adams , Zella Day, and Markéta Irglová (The Swell Season /Once). Marketa and Lizzie recently collaborated on "River" a double-single featuring "River" and "Free Floating" out now.
