Jill Andrews began her music career in 2004 by co-founding the alt-country group, The Everybodyfields. After releasing three albums and touring the country with the band, she decided to make a go of it on her own. And in 2009, she released her self titled EP, followed up with the full-length album, The Mirror in 2011. Jill has been on the road with The Avett Brothers and many other super talented folks. Her songs have been showcased on such shows as Grey’s Anatomy, Nashville, Hart of Dixie, American Idol…etc. She recently finished recording a new record, “The War Inside,” which was released in September 2015.
On her newest solo record, The War Inside, Jill Andrews shines a light on her own struggles and successes, tying the songs together with a new sound that mixes her folk background with a wider set of influences. “When I set out to make this album,” she explains, “I wanted it to feel like me — but me moving, me progressing. I wanted to stretch my legs a bit. My producer, Will Sayles, and I spent a lot of time in the studio experimenting with different sounds and different feels to really bring the songs to life.”
The War Inside reaches into the pop and indie rock world, while still tipping its hat to Andrews’ Appalachian roots. Longtime friend Seth Avett even makes an appearance, singing a duet with Andrews on “I’m so in Love with You.” These songs feel present, and they’re delivered the way Andrews always delivers them: with raw emotion that is as real to her as it is to the listener.
