Nashville’s indie renaissance continues to send up-and-coming artists to Mobile. Singer-songwriter Andrew Combs will be headlining this Music City lineup. Combs will charm his Merry Widow audience with equal parts of alt. country and folk rock from the same world that spawned Ryan Adams and Dylan LeBlanc.
Combs is on tour in support of his follow-up to his 2017 full-length “Canyons of My Mind.” His EP “Five Covers & a Song” includes his latest single “Expectations” as well as translations of tracks from Radiohead, The Struts, Lucinda Williams, Blake Mills and Loudon Wainwright III.
Single Lock Records artist The Kernal will be lending his country sounds to the evening. In the same songwriting tradition as notables such as Jonny Fritz, The Kernal’s style keeps things fresh while nodding to country’s brash glory days of the late ‘70s/early ‘80s.
