Sundays

Tone Tree

Andrew Combs’ latest album, Sundays was born out of a necessity for Andrew to deal with some mental health issues at the end of 2020. He began working through it by setting aside Sundays to record and work through the songwriting from the previous week. The resulting album is sometimes sparse and minimalist, but each track has something incredible, either in lyrics or the music itself, that proves the talent that Andrew embodies.

The opening track, “(God)less,” exemplifies that, with the deliberate pace and surprising, yet well-done, slide guitar. “Anna Please” and the accompanying video were both inspired by Ingmar Bergman’s film Cries and Whispers and is a great summation of the artistry that Andrew uses to approach his songwriting. The themes and artistic elements run rampant throughout Sundays, and I can only suggest you sit down with it and take the journey, song by song.

Andrew co-produced the album with Jordan Lehning with additional arrangements by Dominic Billett. Andrew, Jordan, and Dominic all play on the album, as well as Tyler Summers, Juan Solorzano, and Spencer Cullum.
