Andrew Combs: Artist To Watch
In the spirit of music discovery which guides WFUV, our DJs offer their favorite new artists on the cusp of making it to the next level.
When Andrew Combs' sophomore release All These Dreams came out in January of 2015, I penciled it in as a possible top ten album of the year. Now I can chisel that status in stone.
Born in Dallas and based in Nashville, Combs has country roots that will appeal to fans of Jason Isbell and Justin Townes Earle. Check out "Nothing to Lose" and you'll see that he's got a knack for a sweet melody and a well-turned phrase.
Hopefully it won't be too long before his next release.
