"So Shake the Dust off of Your Wings and The Sleep Out of Your Eyes"
Andrew Adkins is an eclectic blend of singer/songwriter. Adkins is better known for being half of the songwriter/singer duo in psychedelic/roots-rock band, Mellow Down Easy. Their last album, "COSMISUTRA" has been praised by critics from Rolling Stone , Outlaw Magazine, Vintage Guitar magazine as "the most original style in the last decade" and a "breath of fresh air" for the band's unique sound and mixture of influences. His music has also been used on MTV, ABC and USA networks.
Born in the Midwest, moved to Nashville, TN out of high school, Andrew has spent the better part of the last decade on the road, on stage and in the studio. In 2006, Music City publication, The Nashville Scene voted Adkins one of "The Top 3 Local Songwriters in Nashville" (along side Will Hoge and Marcus Hummon). In 2010 after a 75 date U.S. tour with his band, Andrew has decided to take time and head into the studio to begin work on a solo project. "I think it's time for me to do this. This is something that has been floating in my head for a couple of years. The songs that I have set aside for this - the state of my world, the state of our world, it just seems like the time is right and I feel the need to share these songs with everyone right now.", explains Adkins. The album, 'Troublesome, My Love' will be released September 6, 2010 with a string of shows to follow.
