Singer-songwriter Courtney Marine Andrews returns with a new album, Loose Future, and she performs at Songbyrd Music House in DC on Thursday, Nov. 10.
On the honey shores of Cape Cod in a beach shack, Courtney Marie Andrews found self-love and her voice. Every morning, she’d walk 6-8 miles around the back trails of an island and meditate on her life, perusing old memories and patterns like browsing a used bookshop. That summer of introspection led her to a joyous sense of beginnings and ends. When she let love for herself in, she therein let the outside love in, too — the summer feeling, the swaying cypress, the full moon, and the possibility of healthy love.
This phase came only right after one of her darkest, though, where being alone with oneself was the most terrifying thing you could do. After more than a decade on the road, the Phoenix-born songwriter, poet, and painter finally had the space to process all the highs and lows of a life of constants. She was finally ready to make a record of triumph, while not completely forgetting the years that made her.
Watch the official music video for “Loose Future” by Courtney Marie Andrews on YouTube:
Following Old Flowers’ 2020 Grammy nomination, and due to Covid restrictions, Courtney, for the first time in her young nomadic life, was forced off the road and to remain at home. What resulted was the publishing of her first book of poetry, the first gallery showings of her paintings, and a period of self-discovery leading to the new album, Loose Future. Whereas Old Flowers was a beautiful and emotional break-up record, CMA’s return with Loose Future is a bright, dynamic, falling-in-love record. Courtney’s got a new story to tell, backed by a strong new musical direction, and a show-stopping collection of songs.
