Album Review: On My Page

Title:  On My Page (BandCamp)
Artist:  Courtney Marie Andrews (Official, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, MySpace, YouTube, Last.fm, BandCamp, iTunes, Hello Merch, Wikipedia)

Courtney Marie Andrews’ latest album On My Page is a lush and breathtaking collection of folk and country perfection.  With a voice that is equal parts Jenny Lewis, Dolly Parton, and Dusty Springfield, Andrews delivers heartbreakingly beautiful songs in a breathless and effortless way that leaves the listener taken aback by her quiet power.  On My Page is Andrews’ fifth full-length album, which is quite impressive considering how young she is (22 at the time of this writing).  What’s also impressive is how mature the record is.  From top to bottom, all 10 songs are superbly crafted and executed with no frills or fuss.  These songs only contain what is absolutely needed; nothing more and nothing less, resulting in a record that is magnificent in its simple splendor.
