Courtney Marie Andrews announced today that her third LP, Honest Life, will come out August 19 through Mama Bird Recording Co. The album melds indie-folk and Americana, and features prominent pedal steel, electric guitar, and piano.

Since she was 16, Andrews has been touring the world as a vocalist and lead guitar player in a number of bands, all while gaining a reputation as a songwriter’s songwriter. She settled in rural Washington state to work on the new album.

Regarding the origins of Honest Life, she says“While in Belgium for four months, I was going through a major heartbreak. It was a giant hurdle in my life. My first true growing pains as a woman. That’s why in a sense, I feel this record is a coming of age album. A common thread that runs through the songs, is a great desire to fit somewhere, when nowhere fits.”
