We’re rather big fans of Courtney Marie Andrews here at AUK and she’s just released a new track ‘Heart and Mind’, a standalone cut that she is putting out because in her own words she “wanted to write a song that embodies the importance of empowerment when you feel weakened my misrepresentation and/or sexual harassment. Even if our bodies have been misused or taken advantage of, we have the power to speak with our hearts and minds. The most powerful way to display that message is with simple conversations with those who love us. The mother/daughter bond is incredibly powerful, and I use that to embody protection and safety in this song and video.” You can watch it below.
Andrews was recently nominated at the AMAs in the Emerging Artist of the Year category. She lands in the UK in December for some festive dates, so expect covers of ‘Mistletoe and Wine’ and free mince pies – it’s the least she can do.
