Andrew Combs’ sophomore album, All These Dreams, marks a huge step forward for the Nashville singer-songwriter. Using his gifts for lyricism and wry observation, Combs weaves tales of love, sin and redemption, in a style that brings together classic country and contemporary pop. On this album, Combs continues to carve out his own singular path as an artist, reaching the heights of his Texas songwriting heroes.

"All These Dreams" Press:

"This might be the Americana album of 2015" - Ann Powers, NPR Music

"Four Singer-Songwriters You Need to Know in 2015" - Rolling Stone

"A shimmering, Orbison-like arrangement" - Rolling Stone Country

"...the songs on All These Dreams luxuriate in their arrangements, swept along by gossamer strings and silky backing vocals." - MOJO

"An elegant singer and songwriter, spinning gold from tales about heartache and redemption and spirituality - all with a tasteful patina of pop and soul" - The Boston Globe

"The album reminds me of those early Harry Nilsson albums. It has great lyrics, beautiful melodies, softly swooping strings, and a voice that sounds like its been rolled in tobacco and honey" - No Depression

"The thinking man's country star" - Culturefly

"Worried Man" Press:

“Just when you think you’ve heard the best of the up-and-coming Americana stars, along comes one whose music almost takes your breath away.”—Nancy Dunham, No Depression

“Worried Man works the tortured territory of a mind driven to hell and back by love gone bad.”—Jewly Hight, CMT Edge

"[Andrew Combs] embodies the best qualities of Nashville’s ever expanding talent pool”—Seal L. Maloney, American Songwriter

“Texas troubadour smirk, bluesy country melodies and a Southern-steeped lyricism that recalls Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark”—Marissa Moss, The Nashville Scene

"A fine example of how to take standard country tropes – women, drinking, drugs – and make them seem fresh and interesting. Blessed with a wonderfully throaty croon, his songs wouldn’t be out of place on the early 2000s Loose Records compilations New Sounds of the Old West.”—Line of Best Fit (UK)

"Andrew Combs brought the charm. With his long hair and his dry, deadpan wit, he had an easy-going Tim Riggins-reading-a-Merle-Haggard-biography-while-drinking-beer-in-a-hammock demeanor, and his songs reveled in classic country tropes, particularly those of the rule-breaking, vaguely rebellious nature."—CMJ

"Nashville charm, a story-teller’s approach, and a blend of classic country instrumentation with electric guitars."—Consequence of Sound

"The Nashville-dwelling, Dallas native is well on his way to becoming a preeminent voice in his genre"—Southern Living

"Nashville gold"—Greg Vandy, KEXP more >>>
