Abingdon Sessions: Jill Andrews & Darin and Brooke Aldridge

Jill Andrews & Darin and Brooke Aldridge

Genre: Singer Songwriter, Indie Folk, Americana
For Fans Of: Josh Ritter, The Milk Carton Kids, Mandolin Orange

The stories of a woman often go untold. Her struggles are kept as secrets. Her victories, discreet. Her pain, polite and unobtrusive. History records the ones who break her heart and the ones who mend it, yet it forgets the life and truth born in between. On Thirties, acclaimed singer-songwriter, Jill Andrews’ gives these unsung moments the voice they have always deserved. 

From her days fronting lauded Americana group, the Everbodyfields, to her successful solo career as a writer and performer, Andrews’ music has taken her far from her East Tennessee home. She has collaborated and shared the stage with countless celebrated artists including the Avett Brothers, Langhorne Slim, Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors, and the Secret Sisters, and her music has been featured on Grey’s Anatomy, The Good Wife, Nashville, Wynonna Earp and American Idol. Featuring emotional melodies, intimate storytelling, and vocals that soar even at a whisper, Thirties is a deviation, it resists contemplating the big, loud questions of the world, and rather, invites listeners to look inward, keeping us closer to home than ever before.

Tenderly, hauntingly, and without fear, Thirties chronicles Andrews’ journey through a decade rife with both beauty and brutality. She explores the isolation and joy of motherhood, the loss not of a lover, but a partner, the experience of growing older in a world that expects you to stay young forever. With co-producer Lucas Morton and help from friends including Grammy winning songwriting duo Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk, Natlie Hemby, and Andrew’s Husk Kids bandmate Peter Groenwald, Thirties is at once profoundly intimate and artfully infectious, evocative of greats Lucinda Williams, Chrissie Hynde, and Brandi Carlile.

Andrews lives in Nashville, Tennessee with her children Nico, Falcon, and husband, Jerred. Along with a full-color, hard-cover companion book, Thirties is slated for release in 2020.

Wildflower by Darin and Brooke Aldridge

Darin and Brooke Aldridge

Husband and wife duo Darin & Brooke Aldridge draw on the traditions of their native North Carolina, the savvy of a young, gifted band and their own dedication to ingenuity to create the most adventurous album of their career with their latest critically acclaimed release, Inner Journey.

 The duo has placed several tracks at the top of the charts on Roots, SiriusXM, Bluegrass and Gospel charts. They have received multiple nominations from the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) and Inspirational Country Music (ICM). Their music videos “Wildflower” and “Tennessee Flat Top Box” and most recently “Every Time You Leave” were heavily featured on outlets including CMT, CMT Edge, GAC, Bluegrass Ridge TV and The Bluegrass Situation. TV appearances include PBS, Great American Gospel, The Bluegrass Road, RFD-TV, Blue Highways TV, Songs of the Mountain, Woodsongs, Larry’s Country Diner and Music City Roots.

Both highly acclaimed vocalists in their own right (Brooke is the 3-time reigning IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year), Darin and Brooke combine rich harmonies with impeccable musicianship to create the unmistakable sound that has made them one of the hottest young acts in acoustic music and they’ve surrounded themselves with a band of equally amazing pickers. Darin spent 6 years as a member of the acclaimed County Gentleman and is a highly sought-after multi-instrumentalist. Brooke has been lauded for having one of the most powerful voices in music of any genre. Darin was named the IBMA’s Momentum Mentor of the Year in 2017 for his efforts at teaching and mentoring youth on guitar and mandolin and for giving unselfishly of his time and talents at public events at places like the Earl Scruggs Center in Shelby, NC

"There’s a lot about the new generation of bluegrass that sure is inspiring. And Darin and Brooke are two of my favorites of this great new generation. I’m flattered that they included me in their new record and even better, to find out they are equally as great as people”.

--Vince Gill

“Brooke asserts herself as one of the more powerful female vocalists on the scene…”

--Relix Magazine

“Husband and wife duo Darin & Brooke Aldridge have carved out one of the fastest rising careers on the acoustic music scene today.”
