Biography

Courtney Marie Andrews is an American songwriter born November 7, 1990. She is a founding member of the Southwest label that’s being compared to Omaha’s Saddle Creek, River Jones Music. Andrews gained popularity by gigging in her home town of Phoenix Arizona when she was just fifteen years old. Producer River Jones met Courtney at an art gallery party while he was there playing spur of the moment drums for a noise post punk riot girl band. He started recording her in his parents living room two weeks later. They made Urban Myths on a laptop, 1 microphone, and a 2 channel line input. Local concert promoters put Courtney on national opening slots for touring bands on Saddle Creek, Kill Rock Stars, Barsuk, Drag City, Sub Pop, etc. Her popularity grew and Courtney was selling out Modified Arts in Phoenix repeatedly as a headliner. Helping Courtney, Stinkweeds Record Store hooked her up with distribution through 29 record stores nation wide.

Andrews immediately started working on her second album “Painters Hands and a Seventh Son” and after a year of weekly recording sessions at River’s two bedroom apartment in Phoenix. The album was released exactly one year after Urban Myths. Painters Hands got a lot of attention from musicians as being her best effort, while many younger teens found it dark and bizarre.
