Oh My Dear Lord… May Your Kindness Remain

Since first hearing Honest Life late in 2016 it’s been less than secret, my adoration for Courtney Marie Andrews’ song-writing. I’ve written about it, I’ve waxed lyrical to my friends. There are some voices where you struggle to believe a word spoken, then there are voices like Courtney’s where you can’t help but breakaway from the monotonous, mundane presence you currently reside to pay attention. There is a certain tone, a grit in her voice that heaves sincerity. The carefully constructed word play, turn of phrase and wit gifted in magnetic melody is, in my opinion at least, some of the best I’ve heard. Ever. In recent times, Courtney is easily my favourite songwriter and I have been eagerly waiting May Your Kindness Remain since hearing that first single a couple months ago. The whole song held me, but that 3 minute 20 mark…. Oh my f**king dear lord did it send a righteous wave of goose-bumps all over. The rest of the record doesn’t disappoint. Stunning song-writing wrapped in equally stunning production. If you do nothing else this weekend, allow yourself 45 minutes to sit down and listen to May Your Kindness Remain. Nope, no need to thank me. You’re very welcome.
