Nels Andrews proves that he deserves a spot in the ranks of todays Americana heroes.
AMERICAN SONGWRITER

Although he was born by the sea, it wasnt until he moved to the desert that Nels Andrews began writing songs. He sang them alone in a house constructed of mud and tires on the sage-brushed mesas of Taos, New Mexico where he spent his 20s, airing them occasionally around campfires. Eventually he found his voice as a crooner of literary narratives and increasingly impressionistic story songs.

Nels has toured nationally and internationally since 2002 and has won prestigious songwriting awards from Kerrville, Telluride, and Mountain Stage. His international travels include sessions with the BBCs Bob Harris, who named Nels debut album one of the best of that year.

Folk Radio UK says: (Nels) combines deft storytelling with a warmth of tone and gentleness of pace .. awash with layers, metaphors and echoes woven into subtle, contemplative contemporary song. Like finding a seashell at the back of a dusty cupboard, putting it to your ear and hearing the ocean.

Now, happily stationed by the sea again in Santa Cruz, Andrews has gracefully woven the morning fog, redwoods, and oceanside into his forthcoming record Pigeon and The Crow, produced by traditional Irish flutist Nuala Kennedy (Gerry OConner, Will Oldham). A songwriters record in the spirit of Van Morrisons Veedon Fleece with a breath of the texture, rhythm, and longing of Milton Nascimentos Club De Esquina , Pigeon and The Crow brims with literary wordplay, mixed with some sway, some shimmer, and some sand between your toes.

The bones of this soon to be released, 4th studio record were tracked live at indie rock band Lord Hurons Whispering Pines clubhouse/studio In Los Angeles. Andrews, along with Kennedy, Sebastian Steinberg (Iron and Wine, Fiona Apple , Soul Coughing) on bass, and Quinn on drums/percussion (T-Bone Burnett, Eastmountainsouth), breathed life into the songs together in that one room. The album was then fleshed out via long distance collaborations with an international set of traditional players, from the UK to the Azores, mixed with new friends like Stelth Ulvang (the Lumineers), not to mention some old friends from New York. It also features guest appearances by fellow songsmiths Anais Mitchell, AJ Roach, and Anthony Da Costa. Release Date August 9, 2019.
