Follow us on Facebook… please.
Acclaimed singer, songwriter and musician Jill Andrews’ anticipated new album, Thirties, is out today via Vulture Vulture/Tone Tree Music. Stream/purchase HERE.
In celebration of the release, Andrews will perform the new album in its entirety via a special live stream tonight at 8:00pm ET/7:00pm CT on her YouTube Channel.
As a companion to the album, Andrews’ new book, Thirties: The Album in Portrait and Prose, is also available today. The book provides an in-depth look at the album through essays and photographs and features a foreword written by Grammy Award-winning artist Joy Williams. Purchase HERE.
Her first solo release in nearly five years and the first project she has co-produced, Thirties is a deeply personal record that chronicles the beauty and brutality of Andrews’ past decade and is already receiving critical praise.
Co-produced by Andrews and Lucas Morton, Thirties features thirteen new songs co-written by Andrews and features several renowned musicians and songwriters including Ian Fitchuk (Kacey Musgraves), Natalie Hemby (The Highwomen, Miranda Lambert) and Daniel Tashian (Kacey Musgraves).
Of the project, Andrews shares, “I thought my thirties would be different. I always thought at this age, people had it together: a stable relationship, a steady day job and a real sense of who they are. I thought I would have it together. My thirties have been spent single parenting, falling in and out of love, wrestling with voices from the past and struggling with the idea of the future. They have been full of change and growth, deep love and profound loss. They have been humbling and human. They have given me a story to tell. These stories are not all wild or awe-inspiring. Many moments may feel quiet and every day, but I believe that in moments like those, where our minds drift and our hearts ache, deepest truths can be found.”
In celebration of the release, Andrews will embark on a nationwide tour this summer including stops at Chicago’s Tonic Room, New York’s Mercury Lounge, Philadelphia’s The Locks at Sona, Nashville’s Mercy Lounge and Atlanta’s Eddie’s Attic among several others. See below for complete tour details.

The release of Thirties follows a series of breakout years for the Nashville-based artist, who has released four albums as part of the acclaimed Americana groups the everybodyfields and Hush Kids in addition to her two full-length albums as a solo artist. Of her 2015 release, The War Inside, Paste declared, “The War Inside varies from sweet and solemn to strong and undefeated, telling her story while resonating with listeners’ own turmoils. It’s nearly impossible to not nod along to Andrews’ ballads, feeling oddly close to her and to yourself,” while American Songwriter praised, “Jill Andrews drives a song with vocals of someone you feel like you can trust.”
Andrews’ music has been featured in numerous television shows including Grey’s Anatomy, Nashville, The Good Wife, American Idol, Hart Of Dixie, Drop Dead Diva and Mistresses as well as the film Me, Him, Her. She has also toured extensively including shows with The Avett Brothers, Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors and The Civil Wars.
