Courtney Marie Andrews has released a video for “Irene” off of her breakout record Honest Life today over on NPR. The song is an anthem for the timid, a beautiful hymn to bolster confidence and believe in your potential. Andrews sums it up perfectly saying “Irene is the little voice inside most of us, that says we aren’t good enough, or strong enough. It’s about shutting that voice off, while also accepting life’s inevitable struggles. It’s about coming to terms with you are, and believing in that person. Irene was written for a friend who was going through a confusing time, but like some songs do, over time it turned into a song about not only myself, but all of the women that I love. Irene is amazing, she just doesn’t know it yet.”
Mama Bird Recording Co. & Fat Possum Records are pleased to announce the release of an exclusive coke-bottle green vinyl of Honest Life to independent record stores. This version will include a bonus 7″ of unreleased recordings. The bundle is limited to 400 copies and can be purchased on September 15, 2017.
Speaking bluntly, Chip Taylor fires off “Fuck All the Perfect People”, the title track from his album release with The New Ukrainians. Character is the theme for the video with passersby joining in to deliver the world view of Chip Taylor and the New Ukrainans.
“Awake” is the first music video from Philadelphia based singer/songwriter Chad Jenkins’ solo record: VIDEO.

Some of his broadcast credits include: Hoarding Buried Alive, Entertainment Tonight, Yahoo! 365 Nights of Concerts, and the Oprah Winfrey Network. Following the death of his mother and nearly a decade removed from performing music, Jenkins wrote and produced the record: VIDEO, which includes the song and accompanying music video: ‘Awake’.
The next music video off this record is for the track: ‘Every Night of the Week’ and will be available end of summer 2017.
