“Andrews may be the finest Singer Song-writer in America” The Telegraph.
“May Your Kindness Remain confirms Andrews rise. It’s a brilliant record, prove that old forms can still be timeless” - 5 stars – The Guardian 
Hailing from Phoenix, Arizona, Courtney Marie Andrews is a singer/songwriter known for an eclectic style that incorporates elements of folk, country, and indie pop. Andrews began penning her own lyrics in her early teens. Her creative endeavours quickly took hold, and her music went from a hobby to a career choice, as she grew older. After having amassed ample material by the time she was 16, she embarked on her first tour. Subsequent activity saw the young creative land work as a backing singer and session guitarist for many established artists, including Damien Jurado and Jimmy Eat World.
She released her first album, ‘Urban Myths’, in 2008. The record generated some attention for the young singer/songwriter and she put out a number of releases in the following years, including 2010's ‘No One's Slate Is Clean’ and 2013's ‘On My Page’. Both efforts exemplified the innovative, genre-bending approach she brought to her song writing, as well as a bittersweet sonic palette that traversed styles of country, pop, and alternative folk. She received acclaim from accomplished songwriters such as Jurado and Ryan Adams
Session players and her band joined Andrews to record her 2014 EP, ‘Leuven Letters’, which was captured in one live take. However, most of the material that she had written on the road would go on her 2016 full-length effort, ‘Honest Life’. A coming-of-age record, the album paid tribute to many of her sonic inspirations, including Emmylou Harris, Roseanne Cash, and Carole King, as well as storytellers such as John Steinbeck and the late, great Leonard Cohen. Honest Life received widespread acclaim from critics.
Courtney released ‘May Your Kindness Remain’, her follow up album on Loose Records here in the UK, earlier this year. Recorded in Los Angeles with producer Mark Howard (Lucinda Williams, Bob Dylan). It addressed the theme of empathy within the socio-political climate of the day with soulful vocal performances.
Originally from San Antonio, TX, Jeffrey Martin has called the Northwest home for a long time.   An Internationally touring songwriter, he has released three full length albums and one EP to date.  A chance encounter with a promoter at a bar show in a Eugene, OR landed him the opportunity to open for some nationally touring musicians, namely Sean Hayes, David Wilcox, Tracy Grammer.   
In 2014 he signed with Fluff and Gravy Records in Portland, Jeffrey Martin is interested in the stories we can tell in songs.  He freely admits to only learning guitar well-enough to sing to it and has always been much more interested in the lyrics than the notes.  One Go around, his latest release with Fluff and Gravy Records, is a heavy and gritty telling of stories that feel especially poignant amidst the turmoil of recent times.  Gregory Alan Isakov called it, "Another brilliant record from one of the best writers out there-- beautiful, brutal, and honest."

One Go Around was produced by Tyler Fortier in Eugene, Oregon.  
Fortier brilliantly supports Martin’ sparse songs with just enough instrumentation to make these songs hang around in your ears long after they’e ended. In 2014 Jeffrey Martin released his first album with Fluff and Gravy Records, entitled Dogs in the Daylight.  No Depression Magazine had this to say about the album: “ogs in the Daylight is as close to a masterpiece as a folk album by an emerging singer-songwriter can get.”
