You know that I love a good break up song! When I heard Andrea & Mud’s song “Lines” at Smith’s Olde Bar, I knew that Andra Colburn and I were sista’s from a different mother. “Lines” is a song from Andrea & Mud’s soon to be released album. The lyrics in this song are filled with the anguish of a relationship that is loooong overdue for ending.
“You’re the reason why I cry each night / You’re the reason I writhe in pain“
As you listen you will hear Mud Moseley’s guitar dripping with down home blues while Andrea bears her heart on stage and pines her way through the lyrics.
Andrea Colburn and Mud Moseley make up the duet Andrea & Mud. They describe themselves as the king and queen of the hillbilly underground. Listening to their music I hear a spicy mix of blues, country and rock and roll that they call it surf western.
When creating a song, Andrea & Mud find inspiration from many different sources. Earlier this year, they were listening to a lot of Doc Watson and the music were inspired by “Walk on Boy”. They wanted to make it a little greasier and less of a blue grass song. To do this they brought in some classic blues from the likes of Muddy Waters and Memphis Minnie. Toss in a bottle of wine while sitting on the back porch and “Hellhounds” was born.
When asked about a perfect pairing for their live show their answer is a Mexican Boilermaker (a shot of tequila and a beer, preferably a PBR). I would image that a Mexican Boilermaker would put the most stalworth wall flower into the mood for dancing. Hearing them do a cover of “These Boots Are Made for Walkin'” definitely made me want to pull out my cowboy hat and dust off those cowboy boots and hit the dance floor.
A portion of ticket sales from tonight’s concert went to Women in Music. Women in Music is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing valuable resources to thousands of women at all stages of their careers. More than 100 music industry professionals participate in the organization to advance the awareness, equality, diversity, heritage, opportunities, and cultural aspects of women in the musical arts through education, support, empowerment, and recognition
Their next album will have more surf and honkytonk to create their Surf Western style. In addition to the tracks “Lines” and “Hellhounds” they will also have songs that are kinda jazzy, blues and soulful music on the album. Stay locked in here at Libro Musica for news about this upcoming album.
