Dallas-reared singer/songwriter Andrew Combs relocated to Nashville to pursue music, bringing with him a knack for pairing contemporary indie Americana with golden-hued, vintage country-pop in the vein of Mickey Newbury, Harry Nilsson, and Townes Van Zandt.
He released his debut album, Worried Man, in 2012. His fourth long-player, the vulnerable Ideal Man, tweaked his sound with synths and distortion in 2019.
After arriving in Nashville, Andrew Combs released his debut EP, Tennessee Time, independently in 2010. The collection garnered positive reviews, and by 2012 Combs had inked a publishing deal with Razor & Tie and issued his debut full-length album, Worried Man. The following year saw Combs hit the road with Caitlin Rose and Shovels & Rope, and in 2015 he released his sophomore long-player, All These Dreams, via Coin Records. After signing with New West, he returned in 2017 with Canyons of My Mind, following it a year later with the EP Andrew Combs Sings 5 Covers and a Song.
In an effort to achieve a rawer sound, Combs enlisted the help of producer/engineer Sam Cohen (Kevin Morby, Benjamin Booker) for his fourth album. Ideal Man was recorded live in Cohen's studio and released on New West in 2019. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
