JILL ANDREWS ANNOUNCES SUMMER TOUR WITH JD SOUTHER
NEW ALBUM THE MIRROR OUT JUNE 7TH
(Nashville, TN, April 28, 2011) Jill Andrews will head out on a month long North American tour in direct support for acclaimed singer, songwriter and musician JD Souther. The tour kicks off June 12th in Carrboro, NC with stops along the way in New York, Philadelphia, and Boston (complete list of tour dates below).
Performing songs off her debut, The Mirror is set for release on indie label Thirty Tigers on June 7th, and will showcase Andrews’ beguiling voice and intimate lyrics.
Recorded with Scott Solter (Superchunk, The Crooked Jades) in North Carolina and Neilson Hubbard (Glen Phillips, Matthew Perryman Jones) in Nashville, The Mirror nudges Andrews’ folksy roots into an effortless, classic-pop sensibility and keen eye for human drama.
Much of the new album’s production cost was aided by fan contributions via Kickstarter. You can download the disc’s title track now on her website, as well as check out her EPK here: www.jillandrews.com. A video is currently in the works for lead track, “The Mirror” and will be impacting radio in May.
Hailing from Knoxville, TN, Andrews spent five years touring with her band The Everybodyfields. A rock-solid front woman in sundresses and Frye boots, now, Andrews’ voice is accompanied by tender piano, shuffling drums and searing electric guitar to support her careful acoustic picking. Wherever she plays, Andrews offers up a vision of herself as a singular, quickly maturing artist with the power to cross lines of genre and geography, taste and time. She is a force-and a voice-to be reckoned with.
About JD Souther: Widely recognized as one of the principal architects of the Southern California country-rock sound, Souther played a key role in the formation of the Eagles, co-writing many of their hit songs. His forthcoming album, Natural History, will be released May 31 on eOne Music.
